Capital Waste Pictures & Doom Thug Touring presents...
Space Bong 'Dead In Paradise' VHS Release Tour

Adelaide Thursday December 8th The Ed Castle with Hydromedusa, Tombsealer and TALC.

The Death Of Utopia LIVE was a rare opportunity for hardcore doom fanatics to revel in the misery and despair created by this debut opus. The tour also inaugurated a deepening of Space Bong's collaboration with Capital Waste Pictures into the live realm. The Northcote and Newtown Social Clubs facilitated performances never seen in the Australian underground. Sonic doom synthesized with DIY, retrograde VHS circuits, hardware and mixers, in a continuous 70-minute display of harsh, psychic torment. The Dead In Paradise release tour will see the elaboration of this collab. It will also be Space Bong’s first show in Tasmania and the first interstate shows officially as an eight-member doom crew.

Dead In Paradise, released by New York-based VHS label, Videopunks, captures the raw dirge of The Death Of Utopia live at the Northcote Social Club accompanied with a cacophony of grotesque, hyper-obscure visuals excruciatingly dispatched by Liam of Capital Waste Pictures. A vision of human cruelty, obsession and mystery are delivered through circuit bent vintage video hardware. A hallucinatory state of drone and distorted technicolour mayhem is forced upon the senses using homemade vision mixers to create a video synthesis. Green out as the viewer disappears into the space-time abyss.

This surreal transcendence is enacted as if Carl Sagan and Terrence Mckenna ventured deep into the Amazon’s heart of darkness, connected by autonetics. An astrophysicist and a psybernaut of esoteric ancient civilizations delivered a dose of ayahausca through the third eye to explore the inner psyche and outer dimensions of humanity and the universe.

The hour-long journey also includes a rare recording and live performance of Darkthrone’s Rust in Australia’s notoriously brutal insane asylum, Z-Ward. Set amongst the silent screams of torture victims still present within the facility, this location will go down in history as a disturbing example of what humanity is capable of at it’s most ignorant and vile.

We’re pleased to be playing these very special shows with some of our best old and new friends in Adelaide and interstate.
