What happens when Australian federal politics meets the classic beats of early House and Techno?
As a preview to the release of their new album Kill Climate Deniers, Reuben Ingall and David Finnigan are holding a very special undercover Listening Party at Parliament House, Canberra, on Wednesday 31st of August. Register for this event on Facebook to receive regular updates and a link to the special Listening Party mix of the album.
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.
Participants can download a special Listening Party version of the album that takes them on a guided tour of Parliament House, experiencing the story of Kill Climate Deniers in the very locations it is set.
The walking tour version of the album is available to stream from killclimatedeniers.com or download free for today only from Bandcamp.

WHERE: Parliament House, Canberra, ACT 2600
