Premiere of the compilation tape featuring local noise & experimental artists along with several full-length releases:

EM21 - ‘Down Here’ (double-cassette package)

EM22 - Point & Media (reissue w/ ‘First Places’ demo, 2xC-30)

EM23 - Gongfresh & Clamtown ‘Space Cunk’ EP (C-21)

EM24 - Reptile (C-12)

EM25 - Joe Musgrove ‘Bullshit for Oscillators’ (C-40)


EM21 - ‘Down Here’ (double-cassette package)

Brisbane & Northern Rivers (NSW) experimental/noise compilation featuring exclusive recordings from 22 different artists/projects spread across a deluxe, double-cassette package. An artifact of the current climate underground. Do not miss out.

Curated, designed & assembled by B.H. (Essential Minerals). Professionally duplicated, printed. Limited numbers.

EM22 - Point & Media (reissue w/ ‘First Places’ demo, 2xC-30)

Re-issue of the ‘Ornament’ & ‘Fehlberg Park’ EPs by the reclusive Brisbane-based project Point & Media - the only two known recordings to date. ‘Ornament’ was released as a home-duplicated CDR in 2009 - ‘Fehlberg Park’ was never physically released - with only a handful sold then lost into obscurity. Point & Media never performed live, never gave any interviews or information - just recorded two EPs then disbanded. Members went onto form Sunshine State. Included in the package is the never-released demo from one of Point & Media’s founding members: ‘First Places’ - this self-titled demo was recorded in 2012 but was shelved until now to compliment the re-issues.

EM23 - Gongfresh & Clamtown ‘Space Cunk’ EP (C-21)

Debut EP from Gongfresh & Clamtown! New abstract, weird-dance (?) project by Rin (The Perfect Lovers, Shooga, et al) & Will (Ladder, et al) both formerly operating under the Wtem guise for many years.

EM24 - Reptile (C-12)

Debut cassingle from Reptile, two-third’s of Slupr.

EM25 - Joe Musgrove ‘Bullshit for Oscillators’ (C-40)

Joe Musgrove’s (Botborg, Flew Creeking, Diaspora, et al) astounding new, solo release. Devastatingly relentless and out of no-where.

All current titles will be available at the two events - see here for listing


6MAJIK9 (nsw/qld)

The incomparable & infamous free-noise, improv collective from the northern NSW mountains & blistered QLD highlands. Sharing members with Brothers Of The Occult Sisterhood, Terracid, Soarwhole, Innig, Xela, Blonde Cobra, No Guru and Ffehro to name only a few… 6Majik9 are one of Australia's most uncompromising & inspiring long-running amorphous projects. '...Though I've met them, I've no real idea who they are or which planet they came from. I've seen them live — twice, in fact, in the same weekend — and I've never heard or seen anything like it; never borne witness to such musical lunacy...' (Foxy Digitalis)

6Majik9 will be appearing at: Saturday 1st December 2018 | 2PM-8PM | Paddington Substation, CNR Enoggera Tce & Latrobe Tce, Paddington, QLD 4064

THE YEAR OF THE SEX OLYMPICS

Local, legendary outsider artist Jamie Hume continues to be a huge source of inspiration for Essential Minerals & Brisbane-born experimental artists - both in terms of the blatant disregard for all artistic convention and the obstinate DIY-or-die approach to art; his main project, the chaotic, noise/dada ensemble The Perfect Lovers, is now credited as the longest-running currently active improvised project in Brisbane. For this show Jamie will be performing under one of the two known solo guises, The Year of the Sex Olympics.

The Year of the Sex Olympics will be appearing at: Saturday 1st December 2018 | 2PM-8PM | Paddington Substation, CNR Enoggera Tce & Latrobe Tce, Paddington, QLD 4064

TERORIST

Terorist will be appearing at: Saturday 1st December 2018 | 2PM-8PM | Paddington Substation, CNR Enoggera Tce & Latrobe Tce, Paddington, QLD 4064

RAQUEL

Raquel is the solo guise of Rachael Archibald (Raum, et al); secular spiritual identity composing visceral ambience for disenchanting realities.

PSYCHEDELIC MICROWAVES

The only second known live appearance of the incredible duo Psychedelic Microwaves - consisting of Skye (Wardenburger, Bent, et al) & Dylan (Wardenburger, Barge With An Antenna On It, et al). One hell of a rare chance to see this!

NUTMACHINE

Nutmachine will be appearing at: Saturday 1st December 2018 | 2PM-8PM | Paddington Substation, CNR Enoggera Tce & Latrobe Tce, Paddington, QLD 4064

UNWAR (nsw)

Unwar is the solo guise of Michael Donnelly, head of Hashram label, Music Your Mind Will Love You label (RIP!), one of the founders of 6Majik9, one-half of Ffehro, formerly Terracid, member of so many projects it’s impossible to know all of them. One of the most prolific artists across both line-ups and a towering, important figure in Australian underground experimental music.

Unwar will be appearing at: Sunday 2nd December 2018 | 6PM-10PM | Alchemix Studios, 4/24 Brereton St, South Brisbane QLD 4101

LG (solo)

LG is Leif Gifford (Slupr, Reptile, Shooga, Insipid Bitch, et al); an extraordinary, under-recognized artist incorporating sculptural, expansive & experimental a/v installation/performances with individual works spanning many years across both the UK and Australia. Staggering beautiful, intimate & fragile music, solo performances have become increasingly rare. This show cannot be missed!

ONNIE ART (solo)

Onnie Art is the performing solo guise of Bonnie Hart (The UnAustralians, X-Wave, et al), a multidisciplinary artist, assembling digital and analog filmmaking, music, and visual art co-founder of Venting Gallery, the Foundation for Contemporary Music and Culture (FCMC). Bonnie’s performances are incredibly high-energy, chaotic, occasionally violent affairs and unfortunately these shows have been becoming rarer & longer time between each.

Onnie Art will be appearing at: Sunday 2nd December 2018 | 6PM-10PM | Alchemix Studios, 4/24 Brereton St, South Brisbane QLD 4101

JOE MUSGROVE (solo)

Joe Musgrove (Flew Creeking, Diaspora, et al & Pleasing Everyone All The Time label) is an internationally renowned A/V artist whose works span several decades, notably as part of the duo/solo/duo group BOTBORG which has continued to absolutely confound, inspire, sometimes make physically ill audiences via fusing and rewiring raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-colour synaesthesia. Operating under many guises & part of countless projects since the ‘90s, Joe’s solo performances are bloody rare occurrences over the last few years and attendance is mandatory for all Brisbane citizens.

Joe Musgrove ‘Bullshit for Oscillators’ C-40 (EM25) will be available over the weekend and will be appearing at: Sunday 2nd December 2018 | 6PM-10PM | Alchemix Studios, 4/24 Brereton St, South Brisbane QLD 4101
