THE SLEW // LIVE AT THE ROSEMOUNT

Thursday, April 1st, 2010 by John

The Slew A2 small

Kid Koala proudly presents The Slew Live. Six turntables plus Chris and Myles from Wolfmother on bass and drums. It’s rock turntablism like you’ve never seen it before.

It all started nearly five years ago when Kid Koala and Dynomite D were working together to create a soundtrack for a documentary, the pair were pushing into psych rock territory and and had Mario Caldato (Beastie Boys Producer) on board for the mix. By the time the documentary folded the pair were in too deep to let go so they teamed up with Chris Ross and Myles Heskett – the former rhythm section of Wolfmother – to form The Slew. This monster unit set out to put together a full-blown rock band experience to do justice to the material in a live setting.

Last October they dragged a wall of amps, six turntables, bass, drums and keyboards across America damaging the consciousnesses of rock heads and turntablists alike and now they’re heading to The Rosemount Hotel in North Perth to give you the same treatment.

The Slew bring attitude back to the turntable unlike anything you’ve ever heard. Check out the video at the bottom of this post for a taste.  you can also click through to buy a ticket for the event for only $30.
