Album number four for The Drunken Boat has just been released on Sydney DIY label Chemical Imbalance, our first to be released by someone other than the band (I released the third one on my own label so that doesn’t count)! Side Show is three long tracks of ethno-forgery/psych/noise improvised in September 2014 and housed in handmade sleeves designed by Mitch at Chemical Imbalance. Copies are very limited so get in quick. Click on the image below for the link and whilst you’re there check out some of the other awesome releases on the label.

The Drunken Boat have just released their third CD-R album Birdless Tongues! Three long-form tracks of drone and soundscape, put to SD card in 2012 during the same intensive period of recording that produced Purple Perfumes… but quite different to that album. I play Indian harmonium throughout this one, Dale is on electronics and bulbul tarang (Indian banjo). Available from our Bandcamp site and at gigs, will be puting some in A. G. Picks shortly too for those in Melbourne.
The Drunken Boat released their second CD-R album in late July, continuing the Rimbaud references with the album and track titles. Sonically it’s more of a drone outing this time around, bookended by a couple of shorter noisier numbers. Recorded in 2012 before Dale went overseas for a year.
A small slice of The Drunken Boat’s set from 22nd of March, 2015. Recorded in The Tote’s front bar as part of the Alberts Basement Sundays in March residency. In fine company with Elli and Bev, Matthew Hopkins/Tim Coster and Mia Schoen also on the bill. Thanks to Allanah for the video.
My melbourne-based duo with Dale Chapman put out a CD-R last year, our first release, entitled Obliterated Highway. Two tracks of cathartic shit-core noise and a third (over 20 minutes long) of butalist rock n’ roll minimalism involving a two-string guitar and electronics. There’s still a handful of physical copies left, available from our new Bandcamp page. More recordings on the way soon as well.
