Yes, that’s right, PRIMETIME. Well, actually I am not sure whether between 8am – 10am on Saturday mornings counts technically as primetime, but that is clearly the prime eating-breakfast-in-your-pyjamas-in-front-of-the-tv time.
Ghostdrums’ excellent filmclip for Morning Sun has been chosen as Rage’s Indie Clip of the Week, so it will be shown sometime this Friday night (25 June), plus also sometime after 8am on Saturday morning. Check the Rage website later tonight or tomorrow for exact times, but we can tell you that the show will also feature new filmclips from, erm, U2 and Juliette Lewis. That’s right, we expect Ghostdrums will be playing stadiums and forming a full touring band with his Hollywood chums very soon.
Also in 6s & 7s news, their soon to be released debut album is now feature album on RTRFM in Perth, has had tracks added to high rotation on FBi Radio in Sydney and today had excellent reviews in Xpress Magazine and Sixthousand.
Don’t forget that presale tickets for the 6s & 7s album launch on 3 July at The Rosemount, North Perth are on sale (along with copies of Ghostdrums EP) in our online shop.
Thanks for those who came to the launch on Friday night, it was excellent fun. If you didn’t make it down, then not to worry, the four track EP is available as a USB release right now in our online shop.
You can order the USB for only $12 (including postage to anywhere in Australia). The USB comes with an awesome interactive player, comes housed in its own case and also allows you to download high quality tracks to as many computers or devices as you like. Plus, it is fully reusable. Alternatively, you can purchase the tracks digitally in the itunes store, at emusic.com and at the nokia music store.
LIMV’s ANZAC DAY WEEKEND
Friday April 23
Head to the Rosemount Hotel in North Perth after 8pm, navigate your way through the beer garden and slip into the entrance to Bar 459. See Chris Cobilis, Lil Leonie Lionheart vs Rabbit Island and then to top it off – Ghostdrums.
You can buy a copy of the Ghostdrums USB on the night or just wait until you get home and have it delivered to your house or computer by purchasing it online.
Saturday April 24
Go to the pub, see a band, groan at Adam Sandler in the Saturday night movie, go bowling, roam the streets, whatever. buy a ticket to the RISO launch online.
Buying a ticket gets you on the doorlist to this event, as well as a copy of the publication and is therefore essential.
EDIT! Sunday April 25
Wander round the back of Kakulas to the Bird for the launch of LIMV’s RISO publication. You receive a collection of risographed posters featuring contributions from a number of Perth writers and artists. Have fun, collect your RISO publication on entry and see some awesome bands (Is Swan, Taco Leg, Astral Travel) and then go home, with the knowledge that the next day is a public holiday and you can sleep in.
We have regrettably had to change the date of the RISO launch to Sat 8 May at The Bird as the venue is not able to open on Sunday 25 April due to unforeseen circumstances. More details to follow, but we hope the line-up remains unchanged. Most importantly the publication will still be as excellent!
So the new date:
SATURDAY 8 MAY @ The Bird
$15 Entry includes a copy of RISO
The Bird has just got their licence, so this will no longer be a ’secret northbridge location’ or a ‘private party’ but we also encourage those who haven’t bought tickets to do so beforehand, as the capacity is limited.
Love Is My Velocity is proud to introduce Ghostdrums as we launch a limited edition USB release at Bar 459 at the Rosemount Hotel on Friday April 23 from 8pm.
As an eight year old learning to play the drums, Pete Guazzelli came up with an inventive way to make sure his family didn’t disown him. By draping a big white sheet (complete with eyeholes) over the top of his kit, he muffled the noise and created Ghostdrums.
After a fruitful period drumming in local bands like Fall Electric, The Kids and Gata Negra, Pete has revisited the Ghostdrums set up by building a unique machine from parts lying around the house. Combining a gold-sparkle ’60s Premiers drum kit with pedals, synths, loopers and the junk-percussion that’s been clogging up the spare room, Ghostdrums is this long-time Perth-based musician’s new solo project.
Keeping things spooky, Ghostdrums has joined forces with Melbourne artist Ghost Patrol to produce an interactive 4-track USB release that contains a bonus video for title track ‘Morning Sun’.
Ghostdrums’ experimental electronica combines intricate production with a lo-fi acoustic sound that’s as innocent and whimsical as his performance set-up.
See Ghostdrums with special guests, Rabbit Island vs Lil Leonie Lionheart and Chris Cobilis at Bar 459 at the Rosemount Hotel (Cnr Angove and Fitzgerald Streets, North Perth). Doors open at 8pm and capacity is limited, so come early to grab one of the limited edition USBs released by Love Is My Velocity.
Ghostdrums’ self titled EP is also available digitally on itunes, emusic and the nokia music store from April 16. For a preview of the EP, check out his myspace.
