EP 149: El Gordo; Velociraptor




Recorded by Branko Cosic, Mixed by Reuben Aptroot.
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 13th December 2015.

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

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.

Episode 35: DZ Deathrays; The Garbage & The Flowers


This Live Delay update comes courtesy of my hotel room in Istanbul, Turkey – where street riots and clashes with authority seem to be on the agenda. Still, these incidents pale in comparison to the important events happening on Live Delay back in Australia. This is what episode 35 has in store for you lucky duckies.

Recorded and produced by FBi Radio, Sydney.

Dynamic two piece from Brisbane hit their stride in recent years, graduating from intense house party gigs to the world stage after UK tastemakers NME cast their gaze upon DZ Deathrays. Well known for their intense and legendary house party gigs and their outrageous music videos, they released the well received debut record Bloodstreams in 2012.

This live set may be slightly more sombre than the usual DZ Deathrays experience, but still profiles many of the best angles of their recent work. Provided to Live Delay by our friends at FBi Radio in Sydney, this is a live set not to be missed.

The Garbage And The Flowers are Yuri Frusin and Helen Johnstone and they’re known for the off kilter pop music that comes out at strange angles. Originally hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, the duo moved to Sydney about a decade ago and have remained fairly quiet since – emerging every now and then to remind fans of their esoteric loveliness at the most opportune times. I swear ‘Love Comes Slowly Now’ from their opus Eye Rind As If Beggars is one of the most beautiful songs ever penned. Tune in to here them at their marvellous best.
