Absurd Cosmos Late Nite/Telephone/Clinton Green - LongPlay - 27 Apr 2017

Final performance ever of Mark Groves' Absurd Cosmos Late Nite project. "Groves wearily pursues the oppressively mirthless and red-eyed air of a post-midnight suburban petrol station scene - a stop for coffee, snacks, The Picture magazine, forced conversation and the undead ambience of lo-resolution broadcast chatter, in which this perpetual predawn marinates, night after night. Chosen text and audio are assembled from collected fragments of local talkback, overheard declarations and the endless YouTube comment pit." -

Clinton Green makes something akin to music

Telephone is Jennifer Callaway & Michael McCosker

Thursday 27 April 2017, 8:30pm

LongPlay, 318 St Georges Road, North Fitzroy

New titles on Shame File Mailorder

Ross Manning "LED" 10" - This record documents a live performance by Manning using only LED lights as a sound source. The effect is stunning; sometimes sounding electronic, other times like massed strings. Another essential release from this ever-creative artist.

Great Waitress  "Hue" LP - Hue demonstrates both the patience and confidence of the trio of Magda Mayas (piano), Monika Brooks (accordion) and Laura Altman (clarinet). Their third album is really quite remarkable. It squeaks, rattles reverberates, shimmers, converges into a truly unique organism, one that feels not just far beyond the sum of its parts, but also, oddly enough quite untouched by human hands - Cyclic Defrost

**Great Waitress’ “Flock” CD also back in stock**

 Dotabata "Eventual Dusk" cassette - Analogue harsh noise from electronics, found objects, field recordings and tape manipulation. Limited edition of 26 hand-numbered copies.
