What happens when homegrown Australian terrorism meets the classic beats of early House and Techno?
Newly released by Australia’s pre-eminent electronic music collective Clan Analogue is a unique (and bizarre) collaboration between musician/producer Reuben Ingall and playwright David Finnigan.
Kill Climate Deniers is a 35-minute barrage of dancefloor bangers in the style of classic House and Techno from 1988-92 – mixed with samples from Finnigan’s original stage-play of the same name. It tells the story of an explosive attack on Parliament House by a group of eco-terrorists (during a Fleetwood Mac concert, no less) and the Environment Minister’s one-woman war to take her country back.
The result is an anthemic club album threaded through with blistering political satire and a guns-blazing action adventure set at the heart of Australian democracy.
Kill Climate Deniers began life as a playscript, and has now expanded as a project including an album, a short film and a live show.
The album launches kicks off at Smiths Alternative on Wednesday 21st of September. Kill Climate Deniers masterminds Reuben Ingall and David Finnigan will present a night that blends theatre, storytelling, electronic music performance and a dancefloor-ready mix of classic tunes.
WHEN: 7.00 – 9.00pm Wednesday 21 September
WHERE: Smiths Alternative, 76 Alinga Street, Canberra
