Maximum Arousal presents a killer night of outre rock & strange sounds from the extreme underground

PUMICE (New Zealand)

Stirring & shambolic downer hymns from New Zealand. With songs nestled halfway between Xpressway's searing static and Flying Nun's dark jangle, Stefan Neville aka PUMICE has quietly created a unique brand of fractured pop since 1991. Despite (or because of) his activity in New Zealand's cassette underground for the past 15 years, Neville has only recently begun to crawl into the consciousness of outsider music fans. His recordings are indebted to Austrian beer, unspeakable horror and wild dogs & are precariously arranged using an arsenal of cassettes, chord organ, vocals, drums and guitar yielding a fragile and fractured masterwork of sound. Stark and melancholic, calling to mind Alastair Galbraith, Sun City Girls and Supreme Dicks. Through Neville's layers of hiss and murk lie harrowing and beautiful songs. Auckland's Pumice is part of a New Zealand musical lineage that includes Dead C, Tall Dwarfs, The Pin Group, This Kind of Punishment, and contemporary acts like Armpit, Birchville Cat Motel, Witcyst, Antony Milton & Lovely Midget. His ballads & experiments encompass the aural oeuvre of the aforementioned acts delivered with a truly distinct vision

WOG (Sydney)

WOG is Ray Ahn of the Hard Ons and Robbie Avenaim. Their chemistry is undeniable: an avant-garde free-jazz improviser of the highest order dabbling in punk and a punk-rock fiend of distortion dabbling in avant-garde and improvisation joining forces to unleash an infectious yet brutal alternative to the current chart fodder!!!!!!!

FUCK, I'M DEAD

Melbourne's very own bloody & brutal grind legends!

AEROFLOT

Melbourne's Aeroflot duo was established to illuminate Cold War history by playing shabby grindcore.
