Sun 02 Oct 2011 07:30 PM

This is a double bill. Creating a genre all to themselves, Jenny M. Thomas and the System have recently released their debut album BUSH GOTHIC, a collection of traditional Australian bush songs re-worked and planted firmly in the 21st century. To support the widespread airplay their album has received - including Triple J and ABC Radio National - the band are touring Nationally with their Funky new re-interpretations of Aussie bush ballads - John Safran. Songs of criminal women and convict men are given dark edged arrangements with moody rhodes, drumkit, double bass, fiddle- singing and, of course, the spoons. Imagining life without her music and its surprises is too bleak to even think about. Jenny M. Thomas is that transformative an artist.' - Froots UK

Chinas king of 8-bit techno, Sulumi is a purveyor of some of the finest, take-noprisoners electro-glitch-house this side of a souped up Sega Mega Drive. Built on a bedrock of hurtling four-to-the-floor and surrounded by jagged curtains of 8-bit gurgle and wonky acid synths, Sulumis music sounds not entirely unlike a Gameboy and an 808 being sucked through an angle grinder in the middle of a Berlin club. Pounding, chaotic, euphoric.

Electronic experimentalists of the most endearing order, Lucky Dragons live shows are the epitome of coming together less performance, more all-in, collaborative jam session where the shape of the song is dictated by the audience as much as it is the band. Incorporating a bewildering array of instruments, percussive elements and other music making devices for which no names yet exist, a Lucky Dragons gig is in essence an entirely new form of social music making, an improvised free-for-all where the barrier between artist and audience ceases to exist.
