** For Immediate Release**

six minutes and three seconds’, the new single by Brisbane exploratory noise-rock trio FEET TEETH, is just that - six minutes and three seconds of fuzzy commodore 64 synths, wonky trumpet, brittle electronics, and caveman drumming. The improvisational outfit is releasing two full lengths in July that come from the same recording sessions, GOUT (independent) and BRUXUS on Canberra label, hellosQuare.  Recorded over two days, the records feature Erik Griswold [Clocked Out - Piano], Andrew Tuttle [MiniBrute Synthesizer], Luke McCallum [Ghost Notes - Trumpet], Kahl Monticone [Guitar] and Timothy Tate[Analogue Electronics] and show two different sides to the ensemble. BRUXUS is a more dissonant, anarchic release while GOUT has a more brutal, driving quality.

FEET TEETH have previously collaborated with poets and contemporary dancers and performed on their own for Brisbane Festival (2012), Brisbane Emerging Arts Festival (2013), the NOWnow (2013) and the Queensland Poetry Festival (2013), released a full length cassette on hellosQuare, various CDs and digital material independently, presented a live soundtrack on FBi’s EarsHaveEars show and had their music reworked by national and international experimental musicians.

To celebrate the releases FEET TEETH are touring in July:

July 5th @ Make It Up Club, Bar Open VIC w/ Sean Baxter & Rafel Kaczmarek; Boyz XIX
July 6th @ Class Acts, The Grace Darling VIC w/ Hertz (D.a. Calf) + LVP

Please email for access to a pre-release stream of GOUT or BRUXUS

Previous comments about FEET TEETH:

“One of the strangest, most wonderful acts oozing out of the cracks of Brisbane … Utilising drums, marimba, trumpet and electronics (including their ever reliable C64 reimaginings), the band tap into a free-jazz purgatory that is often presents a corporeal, cacophonous cocoon to slip inside and melt away in. It isn’t restive, narcoleptic music however - there is an errant restlessness to the instrumentation here, even in the spaces between the chaos - but there is a world being created that requires complete immersion, zero outside-world intrusions.” - Sonic Masala [blog]

“It’s one thing to employ a unique form of presentation, it’s another entirely to expand that form into results sturdy enough to support a full-length recording.
Aphthae Epizooticae [previous FEET TEETH tape] manages this feat and then some via a meager store of instruments including percussion, marimba, Commodore 64, and trumpet” -  Tinymixtapes website

“Kicking the EP off with Hsinchu, Feet Teeth cram more interesting ideas into four-and-a-half minutes than should theoretically be posible. Said ideas don’t battle each other for attention, in fact  they almost line up and take turns.” Timeoff Magazine

Community Sounds with Rully Shabara - Body Voice Centre - 23 Jun 2016

Community Sounds at the Body Voice Centre Special Guest Rully Shabara (Senyawa) 23 June from 7.30pm

Everyone improvises and anyone can be creative. Creativity and improvisation help us connect better with each other and build stronger communities. Every Thursday night in June there is an opportunity to experience this by participating in collectively creating music.

We are very fortunate to be joined by world renowned musician and performer Rully Shabara for our session this week. In addition to his work with the jawdropping
experimental duo Senyawa , Rully is the developer of a technique for collective composition, Ruang Jagat . We have been
applying this technique during our own “Experimental Community Arts Events”, but to participate in a workshop led by Rully is an opportunity not to be missed.

Taking place at the Body Voice Centre in Footscray, this series of workshops operate at the intersection of performance and participation facilitators Paddy Gordon and Conor O’Hanlon identify as both experimental performers and community arts leaders, and seek to open up spaces that allow for inclusive engagement with cutting edge ideas around improvisation, spontaneous composition and music as play. This is a safe space to explore making weird noise.

As musicians and facilitators, improvisation and deep listening underpins and grounds our practice. Regardless of whether you are an experienced player or a beginner, come along and see how improvisation and musical free play can help build a sense of community and connection. There are no barriers whatsoever to participation – come and join us!

Community Sounds takes place Thursday nights in June from 7.30 to 9.30 at The Body Voice Centre, 50 Wolverhampton Street, Footscray.
$10 waged, $5 unwaged/student.
