DIRT MUSIC ORCHESTRA presents RADIOHEAD EXPANDED
Dec 15 all-day

option-16pm doors, 7pm show

Have you ever heard Radiohead’s music like this? Gorgeous arrangements for a modern 18-piece big band expand Radiohead’s music into a stunning and fresh tonal palette.

Radiohead’s music has lent itself – almost uniquely – to painting on varied sonic canvasses, from solo piano, to jazz quartet, to chamber orchestra. This event sheds new light on the songs, using the incredible dynamic range and varied timbral colours of a contemporary big band.

Similarly, the big band has proven itself a versatile musical vehicle. If you’re unfamiliar with the format, come prepared to be blown away by a 13-piece horn section. Either way, come prepared to have your expectations expanded with these sublimely beautiful re-imaginings of Radiohead’s music.

The sounds from this evening will stay with you for days, months and years to come – a new soundscape to carry with you wherever you go.

TEX PERKINS & MATT WALKER

©Martin Philbey Tex Perkins - The Beasts of Bourbon 15th February 2007 Melbourne - Australia All Rights Reserved

7pm doors, 8pm show

Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music It’s understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has taken in everything from the groundbreaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with the Dark Horses.

From the hard edged pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon’s, a snarling slice of filthy pub rock to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea.. Then there’s the Tex, Don & Charlie albums, which saw Perkins joining forces with the legendary Don Walker, Cold Chisel’s pianist and master songwriter and son of the Clarence Valley, and Charlie Owen, previously Australia’s best kept musical secret.

Now is Tex’s exciting new (and long over due) collaboration with Matt Walker (a great artist in his own right) for duo shows. It’s a blues swamp-groove kinda thing that’s a little reminiscent of some of the things in Tex’s back catalogue. Many new originals inhabit the setlist, but see them now while they still have to flesh out the set with a few Cruel Sea covers! “Tex has the swagger, presence and indomitable attitude that comes from years of fronting some of Australia’s most intense and spirited rock’n’roll bands.
