I blame INXS, a soft target I know, but if Michael Hutchence and his bunch of leather and paisley wearing haircuts hadn’t decided that Wembley Stadium was a great place to do rock concerts then maybe, just maybe musicians would have kept their prancing and showboating to stages instead of  football fields.

This year The Crustacean Cup matured into a four team competition, pitting local lead breakers and beat makers against each other in an irreverant riff on the world game. Cut & Paste was there to record all the highlights, the low lights and the absurd lack of motor skills that people who can play play multi-octave scales at blistering speed demonstrate when a big round thing gets near their feet.

Special mentions must go to the Foodchain crew for putting together an excellent afternoon’s entertainment, Tomas Ford for MC-ing the day and of course to the mighty Crabcelona FC for defending their title from last year.

During the Final of the 2011 Crustacean Cup, Young Filmmaker of the Year and roving documentary man Mat de Koning went deep inside the camps at half time and full time to talk strategy, skills and post match celebrations.

You can view the half time commentary here and the full time wrap up here.

Results:

Game 1: FC Crabcelona 1 def Mictacea 0

Game 2: The Mariners 1 def Tyrannocrabs 0

Final: FC Crabeclona 1 def The Mariners 0

A month or so ago now we gaffered the Sonys and the Flip down to any available speaker or table that gave us a shot of what was the first live-set by Paper Chain artists Kit Pop and Zeke. What unfolded was forty minutes of turntable, mpc/sampler, acapella musical act…

It’s big bass and heavy shakes which is what the DEADWEIGHT! crew are all about. So sit back and enjoy.

This Friday will see the second installment of DeadWeight! @ The Bird… check out the details here

JUST ON THE DOWN LOW //

Thursday, October 29th, 2009 by Nicole Norelli

We’ve been fortunate enough lately that every time a festival pops up, [and let’s face it, there's one almost every weekend now] the sun pokes its head out and gives us a warm summer welcome. Low:Fi Festival was no exception. A shocking 30 degree concrete heat beat everyone into believing we really might be in NY’s Brooklyn, with Aberdeen Street partitioned for a Chapelle style Block Party.

Low:Fi Festival brought this thirsty lil’ place on earth some serious international hip hop, dubstep and drum and bass:

Noisia destroyed, Qbert threw records into the crowd, Supernatural gave one hell of a set encouraging fans to hand him objects from which he’d rhyme “but this is freestyle my friend so I don’t need a pen.”
Local acts NAIK, Kitpop, Rokwell did just thatand of course NAS with one of the hottest looking and sounding lineups, tighter than a nun’s a-hole. I’m sorry, I mean, what can I say in praise that’s more succinct than “they were freaking awesome!”?

Kicks, hot chicks, no more than the average dicks, well the police got rid of them quick never seen a force so evident in Northbridge at an event like this undercover cops would quash any need to smoke green [yes its those who get stoned who turn violent, Go figure!]. Whilst backstage was one giant session, so where’s the lesson in removing citizens who teach the young and help the disabled? All we desired to Do The Right Thing was a hydrant to bust, and everything would’ve been Spike Lee.

In comparison to the Future and Stereo and Summadayze etcetera where the majority of kids can sell and pop pills quicker than it kills… y’all just need to chill…and kick it to some tunes on the down low… //
