manipulator with six turntables meets the ex-Wolfmother rhythm section.
By Blurt Staff
A couple of years back Eric San (aka Kid Koala) and Dylan J.
Frombach (aka Dynomite D) were approached to soundtrack a new documentary
feature film that was in production. Koala was already well known for his turntable
manipulation, whilst Dylan had remixed Money Mark and collaborated with the
Beastie Boys, amongst others. The duo worked for a long time on the psych
rock-influenced score, only for the filming to collapse and any release to be
canned. Although the film may never see the light of day, its music is about to
be brought to life on stage.
Recently Koala & Dylan met the former rhythm section of Australia’s Wolfmother
and began telling them all about the film and its lost music. Chris Ross and
Myles Heskett loved the clips and urged that the material had to be heard;
subsequently Kid Koala and the guys decided to put a show on the road.
After intensive rehearsals the show is now ready to go.
Featuring drums, bass/keys and the DJs working across a truly excessive six
turntables, the set is seventy minutes of raw guitar cuts and heavy beats. It’s
a one-off tour, too, so it’s a case of be there or be square, for The Slew Tour.
Meanwhile, you can check out a couple of MP3s from the project. Some funky shit, yo.
