Some deep dark 11/4 jazz to brighten your day. Thanks Dave Streeter for filming!

Zephyr Quartet and then 1.1 Immermann playing Sensible Haircut Dan

Posted By / / 0 comments

So for Fringe this year, Coma put on a series of shows wherein different bands or artists played together but swapped repertoire. Immermann and the Zephyr Quartet played together. One of my compositions played by them was Sensible Haircut Dan (from Extra Knusprig) and we decided to quickly play it as well so you could hear the contrasting arrangements. This video by Dave Streeter has them back to back.

An other video! This one is a radical departure from my usual technique of not using La Toya Jackson footage.

Mark Ferguson’s Scottish Jazz Music

Here is a promo video for a concert we played earlier this year, which was part of the Nexus World Music Series. It gives you a good idea of what the music was about but there isn’t much actual drumming in there… you can hear a bit of the band towards the end and see me in a vest occasionally. Mark wrote a bunch of originals which were beautiful and challenging in equal measures.  With violinist Julian Ferraretto and bassist Lyndon Gray.

Marmalade Circus – live in the studio

We donned vests, threw up a bunch of mics and placed phone cameras around the room at a recent Marmalade Circus rehearsal. Here are the results.

 

Ross McHenry Group – Stanley Park Dream live

This is pretty special. Ross’s group of people playing at the Promethean in October this year. A great tune by Ross, recorded very nicely. And the playing’s kind of great too if I do say so.

A bunch more new live 1.1 Immermann footage

David Streeter has struck again: four audio-visual recordings of an Immermann gig at COMA earlier this year.

Song of the Sad Assassin (a very good Why? song)

Sensible Haircut Dan (from our basically finished, not yet released new album)

Air Bandung (also from that album)

1.1 Immermann Theme (an oldie, but with brand new James Brown noise solo in the middle)

Shaolin Afronauts – The Making of Quest Under Capricorn

Posted By / / 0 comments

It’s a 25 minute documentary about us rehearsing, recording and gigging the new Shaolin Astronauts album. It’s pretty good! Many of my good friends are featured, and it’s a great insight into how an 18 piece band gets in a studio to record some crazy music.

I don’t get much camera time, and when I do I look like the least fun person to be around. I don’t remember being that not fun the whole time.

You can view all his lovely monochromatic photos and videos of Louisiana Blues and some rambling Bon Iver song that everyone who isn’t me seems to love here:

Also included are photos of us hanging out after the gig, featuring me partying the only way I know how: not particularly hard.

I was privileged to be a part of the demonstrably monstrous (in size and goodness) Shaolin Afronauts earlier this year. I’m one of the percussionists on the upcoming album and we played live at Barrio and at the Space Theatre, which looked a lot like this:

1.1 Immermann – Samizdat video

So MAPS filmed us playing one of our new tunes. I think it turned out very nicely indeed. It was nice getting to actually play the song rather than having to mime along with a recording.

I’ve been playing in Tim Hogan’s Frank Zappa tribute band ‘Läther’ for a while now. This is us at the Governor Hindmarsh at the start of this year. Dave Streeter has a bunch of other videos of worthy Adelaide music on his youtube page.

voiceROM - Poison Clan Technique

DOWNLOAD OR STEAM FROM BANDCAMP

Most of this was actually made before voiceROM was a thing. But we spruced it up and gave it a proper VR release anyway. It has the most rapping of any of our “albums” so far, performed by the guys who dubbed the film ‘Five Deadly Venoms’. I haven’t been able to find out their names. Sam Zerna says that this one is his favourite.

And here it is, synced with the film. (The mix is better on the proper “album” release.)
