Formed in 2008 by local legends Jeremy Neale, and DZ Deathrays members Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley, Velociraptor began adding members for each letter in their name. Now their the music equivalent of The Avengers featuring 10-14 band members, including members of Running Gun Sound, Teen Sensations, and The Strange Attractors. After an EP, Mini Album, and Full Length Album, their only goal left to kick is to take over the world

EL GORDO

el gordoRecorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 13th December 2015.

Hailing from Brisbane, El Gordo deliver a tight, zero-gimmick sound where minimalist, crunching and head-nodding riffs are layered with dissonant melodies, and executed with a focused, abrasively anti-mainstream aggression. Formed by ex-Helmet, and Handsome guitarist Peter Mengede, El Gordo are heavier than lead.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 8-9pm, Friday 22nd January 2016.
Show production and engineering: Branko Cosic.
