Sydney’s favored sons of progressive and experimental music, The Birds Robe Collective have been real busy. Not only are these not for profit supporters of local prog kicking of Menagerie 2010, a festival spanning three months and 20 shows including over 100 different artists, including the launch of their record label Bird’s Robe Records on Oct 24th at The Excelsior Hotel, and a farewell show for GODSWOUNDS who are on the way to the US to record their debut album.
The label launch will also see the launch of Bird’s Robe Recrods maiden releases, Japanese band Vampillia’s debut EP Sppears as well as the inaugural outing of The Birds Robe Collaboration Band, the “Musodynamics” EP being the first in a series of collaborative recordings between Birds Robe artists featuring members of Squat Club, Squid, Fuji Collective, Pirate, The Bznzz and Slimey Things and was produced by Alex O’Toole of Captain Kickarse and the Awesomes.
Both releases will be available for free on the night of the launch so don’t miss out.
Anyway there is way too much going on to mention here so for more information visit
