After Kill Climate Deniers comes The Bolted Report
“Ah, Canberra. Plenty of bong for your buck. Drug-addled politicians. Drugged kids reading ‘Kill Climate Deniers’. This is lower than the original town of Acton, sunk beneath the lake this last century.”
When Andrew Bolt heard that some lucrative arts funding was going towards a possibly subversive theatre show called Kill Climate Deniers, telling the story of an explosive attack on Parliament House by a group of eco-terrorists, he wasted no time in unleashing his blog readership to vent their vitriol. Reuben Ingall and David Finnigan took the assorted ensuing rantings and incorporated them into the single ‘Bolted’ from their concept album Kill Climate Deniers, released in September by Clan Analogue.
Following on from the album’s release Clan Analogue are pleased to follow up with Ingall and Finnigan’s new EP The Bolted Report. Along with the original version of ‘Bolted’ (in both extended album version and radio edit form) comes four remixes of ‘Bolted’ exploring the philosophy of Bolt and his followers through the prism of a range of electronic and dance music styles, from classic late-80s techno to modern bounce.
When EMF mainman James Atkin heard that Kill Climate Deniers was soundtracked by classic dancefloor bangers from the late-80s and early-90s he jumped on board with full house piano riffs blazing to provide his ‘Unbelievable’ remix.
Wade Clarke, the genius behind Aeriae, provides a hyperkinetic IDM mix under his new side project alias Profound Actor.
Electronica despot Future Conduits cracks open Bolt’s skull with his FUKD & BOMBD mix, sliding 90’s drug hysteria into KCD’s modern climate concerns.
Reuben Ingall gets bouncy as Dead DJ Joke with his tangential revisit.
Iubar Project stretch and mangle the blustering verbiage of Bolt and his acolytes in a sonic attempt to explore their innermost thought processes.
And Clan Analogue luminary Nicole Skeltys, formerly of B(if)tek, and her collaborator Robin Hemmings give us a new take on the Kill Climate Deniers album track ‘Tumblr Dot Com’. The original being far too catchy to improve on electronically, they went for a live reinterpretation, throwing in pathos, angst and howling harmonica.
The lyrics for ‘Bolted’ are derived from Andrew Bolt’s published writing on Kill Climate Deniers, and from the comments of his blog readership: “The Left is the natural home of the modern totalitarian – and of all those who feel entitled by their superior morality to act as savages.”
