Def Fx says
DEF FX, Australia’s own electronic surf rock band of the 90s is returning to Australia in 2017 for a national tour. Fronted by the enigmatic Fiona Horne and joined by the original line-up, including founding guitarist Blake Gardiner – this is a show not to be missed!

DEF FX are Australia’s number one surf electronic rock 90s band. Their music has been described as a fusion of psychedelia, industrial, grunge, electronica, and heavy metal, and in their early days, even reggae and disco. They released a number of albums in the 90s including Water (1991), Light Speed Collison (1992), Baptism (1993) and the ARIA Gold album Majick (1996). The band disbanded in 1997 after multiple chart successes and a reputation as the best live touring band in Australia. They toured internationally with bands like Smashing Pumpkins and No Doubt.

Fiona Horne herself widely regarded as one of the pioneering women in Australian punk rock music. Starting in bands in the 1980s Fiona went onto to create DEF FX in 1991 and was known as one of the most enigmatic women in Australian music of that time.

2017 will mark the 20th year anniversary since the band broke up. It will also be the first time since 1993 that the original founding guitarist, BLAKE GARDNER will perform with the band. His sonic style was a cornerstone of the band’s sound.

DEF FX will be joined onstage by My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult (often shortened to Thrill Kill Kult or TKK ) on their first ever visit to Australia. Their sound is a concoction of experimental, disco, rock, new wave, lounge and glam, interlaced with their signature “sampled dialogue” – a reflection of the duo’s musical influences, and insight into their taste in cinema.

The Heaven and Hell tour will mark a special reunion for DEF FX, bringing together the original songwriters and performers that were pivotal in creating that unique 90s DEF FX sound and image. They will play all their hits and are releasing a new single especially for the tour. Joined by friends and cult band TKK will make it one of the music events of the year.
