Sometimes it seems like the coolest projects are the ones that get scrapped before they ever make their way to the public. Luckily this one came back from the almost dead. The music was intended to be for a soundtrack for a movie that won't be seen. There will be a 'Tour only album' of this music, here are a couple tracks from the album. For the tour schedule check Kid Koala's website, while your there have a look around. There are some interesting things going on. There is also a video for It's All Over.
Some info from the press release: (Thanks to lbz @ terrorbird)
A couple of years back Eric San (aka Kid Koala) and Dylan J. Frombach (aka Dynomite D) were approached to soundtrack a new documentary feature film that was in production. Koala was already well known for his uncanny turntable manipulation, whilst Dylan had remixed Money Mark and collaborated with the Beastie Boys, amongst others. The duo worked for a long time on the psych rock-influenced score, only for the filming to collapse and any release to be canned. Although the film may never see the light of day, its music is about to be brought to life on stage.
Recently Koala & Dylan met the former rhythm section of Grammy Award-winning Australian rock band Wolfmother and began telling them all about the film and its lost music. Chris Ross and Myles Heskett loved the clips and urged that the material had to be heard; subsequently Kid Koala and the guys decided to put a show on the road.
After intensive rehearsals the show is now ready to go. Featuring drums, bass/keys and the DJs working across a truly excessive six turntables, the set is seventy minutes of raw guitar cuts and heavy beats. We can guarantee that you will never have heard anything quite like this and also that you are unlikely to again. It's a one-off tour, so when it stops in your town you'll either be there or will have missed it forever.
Anyone who has seen previous Kid Koala events will not be disappointed - from Kid Koala's incendiary solo turntable spectaculars to the Nufonia book launch, Deltron 3030 live to the Short Attention Span Theater.
Brash, loud and defiantly turned up to eleven. The Slew Tour is coming to your town. Don't miss it.
