THIS MONTHS LIVE ACT /////// ENABLER A.D

The stygian angst is pryed open with cinematic percussion, coarse hunks of vintage synthetic bass and an atmosphere of weaving analog synths, atonality, noise, and '90s cyber anime samples. But in contrast to the frigid solemnity usually associated with the genre, there is something undeniably rock'n'roll about Enabler A.D. live, like if Michael Hutchence formed a power electronics act. Often on the verge of self destruction, the authentic and honest vocals range from heavily effected, tortured, to clear and present, intimate, or spoken word. There is a definite wire thread through the oftentimes chaotic and even destructive live show, and it has to be experienced to be understood.

While recorded material from Enabler A.D. is still frustratingly elusive, the band continue to work quietly, and each live show brings unheard new material as the many heads of their musical hydra begin to work with frightening accord. In under two years of activity, their unrelenting and at times ferocious approach to live electronic music has made Enabler A.D. a singular entity in the West Australian music scene, uniting noise and electronica with the realms of underground synthpop

Your DJs for the night will be: Resident Jess Kill, with special guest DJ Rural Dread.

A well-known Perth musician of many years, Rural Dread played in seminal local post punk band Kingpig when he was just 16 years old in 1990. Heading interstate in his 20s, he spent time with Sydney industrial outfits Headpress and Dose.

While he resides back in WA now, formerly playing with punk outfits like the Blazin Entrails, his love for bands like the Cure, Joy Division, The Birthday Party and The Hard Ons now see him placed as lead guitarist of the Nerve Quakes.

Come see him, Kill and ENABLER A.D this September.
