Hi fellow TC'ers,
Since we are so starved of Tiki events down here in Australia, i'm putting one on myself. My band is having an album launch so it's going to be a beach burnin', tiki torchin', jungle beatin' shakedown!
see the below poster and blurb...
Had enough of the winter blues already? Dreaming of a tropical paradise on an island far far away? Take off on an escape to the South Seas for one night by following the beating drums towards the Zoo on Saturday July 8 for the "Night of the Tiki Terrors".
Be savaged by the sounds of voodoo rhythms, jungle beats and primitive rock and roll as Wiseacre and Sydney's Casino Rumblers both launch their debut albums on the night, with El Borracho and the Surfari Krishnas adding to the inferno of live music. See live tiki carving by world renowned carver Marcus Thorn of Tiki Beat, marvel at authentic Tahitian hula dancers and enjoy the sounds of wild exotica, cool surf and garage rock between bands, all the while sipping on exotic cocktails available in limited edition tiki mugs on the night.
The new Wiseacre album "STEP UP" out thru Green/MGM
Set to the tempo of a drunken tap dancer and smacking of dirty old man cheek, Wiseacre's full-length album "STEP UP" is the new soundtrack to your Saturday night. Recorded at the prestigious Rockinghorse studios in Byron Bay, Wiseacre have stepped back into the ring armed with an arsenal of hard-hitting new tunes, rocking riffs, punchy brass and explosive energy. The 13 track album will be in stores on July 15 thru Green/MGM distribution for $20, or available on the night for $15.
After teaming up with psychobilly rockers the Casino Rumblers for their CD Launch in Sydney recently, Wiseacre and the Rumblers are again joining forces for a massive DOUBLE ALBUM launch at the Zoo on July 8. The Casino Rumblers album "SEE HOW IT'S GONNA END" is out now on Sound System thru MGM http://www.casinorumblers.com
Also joining in on the fun will be the "country chainsaw massacre" of local cow-punks El Borracho, and self proclaimed "instrumental surf gods" The Surfari Krishnas (featuring various talents of Sixfthick/Fred Band/ex-Blowhard members), who will be setting the tone for an evening that will boast not just liberal doses of good fun rock'n'roll, but also:
LIVE TIKI CARVING by Australia's leading carver Marcus Thorn of Tiki Beat, who will also be supplying the exotic decor for the Zoo to really set the mood for the swingin' tropical safari. Visit http://www.tikibeat.com.au
LIVE HULA DANCING on stage between bands by the Marama Tahitian Hula Dance Group. Who said live rock'n'roll mixed with authentic French Polynesian hula dance doesn't work???
EXOTIC island flavoured cocktails available in LIMITED EDITION TIKI MUGS on the night. Buy a tasty cocktail and keep the mug!!
