Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last twenty years you would have heard of Hard-Ons (Official Fan Page). Well the two arrogant yet unassuming pillars of that said band, Blackie and Ray have another band at their disposal- Nunchukka Superfly. Now this is a band that has Mike Patton, Jello Biafra,
The Melvins and members of Helmet as card carrying members of their fan club.
What do they sound like? Try these for influences: Dub. Experimental. Free-jazz. Noise. Metal. Psychedelia. Punk. This is a band described by one famous scribe as "from the sort of sonic place The Stooges were heading towards on the Funhouse album before bathroom floors and clinical psych assessments got in the way. It’s where Can and Ash Ra Tempel meet at some sort of cosmic equivalent of the crossroads where Robert Johnson allegedly sold his soul. It’s where Sun Ra would be if the Arkestra’s noise was routed in strings, sweat and electricity as opposed to reeds and windpipes. Its where former Black Flag guitarist, Greg Ginn pulled out his most out of left field fret moves. All with the really twisted pop – and yeah, it might be a stretch to use that term as a reference point here – of Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd with all relevant Interstellar Overdriveisms in full frontal view. Oh yeah, its as evil as hell."
The cool thing is that Nunchukka are coming to play the Gong, backed by a rare performance of the crushingly heavy Cape Tribulation and an even rarer performance by Fast Falling Fortunes, who are so underground they haven't even got a Facebook page I can link you to.
