Rice Corpse – Mrs Rice (Dual Plover) Review in Cyclic Defrost

Just when you thought that all trios of improvising musicians were just pretentious excuses to plink plonk and masturbate their way through the pretense that somehow the discordant mess they produce is actually a meaningful new direction in modern music for people who haven’t been schooled for 5+ years in modern composition and learned to hate music, along comes Rice Corpse.

It’s the work of Sydney based lunatic glass blower and noise extraordinare Lucas Abela, who if the press release is to be believed briefly became a cultural ambassador to China, spending two months in Beijing found pianist Li Zenghui (who is actually a saxophonist) and percussionist Yang Yang, jammed with them a few times and then dragged them into the studio for this monstrosity. It’s the funniest most visceral and compelling music this writer has heard for a very long time. At times Abela feels like he’s sabotaging the aforementioned plink plonk, tearing it apart with his aggressive howls, other times he sounds like some kind of wounded inhuman animal growling irritably whilst the piano and percussion rain down around him, then there’s the moment where it all coalesces into the adolescent noise frenzy that is spirited and unrelenting, a charging jam that you could only imagine as the sound of the apocalypse. Perhaps what I find most fascinating about Rice Corpse is how the trio don’t sound tied down to any particular form of improvisation as is so commonly the case. This may be because Abela’s contact mic’d glass through distortion pedals produces such a unique, and I would imagine quite difficult to play along with, sound, but really I believe it has a lot to do with the musicians desire to pull something quite unique out of the box. At times it’s quite musical, even positively melodic, at other times the humour comes from the ludicrous ill fitting nature of this trio, yet then it all becomes quite hysterical, pushing you to face head on, the joy, freedom and possibilities of experimental music – rubbing your face in it over and over again, until you just want to be left alone. Genius.

Duckside Of The Moon Launch Tour



Our countries most favoured MC, the handsome drake known by his adoring public as the Purple Duck, has decided to bless the east coast with a celebratory tour for his long awaited debut album ‘Duckside of the Moon’ recently released by dualpLOVER recordings. The Maroon Loon will be dispensing some of his ‘implausible vocal dexterity’ on the road this june / july flocking together the most motley mob of hip hop artists ever assembled in this country, for simply the best packaged deal you will ever be likely to hear.

Joining duckmania are a crew of wogs known as Curse Ov Dialect, who are nothing if not an anomaly on the Australian hip hop scene, their non-homogenized tapestry of world music and hip hop sensibilities fused with a costumed show of unrelenting energy makes for a very interesting time indeed.

And then we have the professional savage who taps the jugular of hip hop bleeding from it everything you once held dear. This Mexican with a distinct distaste for white Australia will make the Caucasians in the house say ‘SQUIRM’ while raising the roof on our countries genocidal history and present.

Together these three acts are the vanguard of experimental hip hop in this country their humour, joy and dread offer varying perspectives on life, its hip hop son, but not how you want it.

trash english

Thats right trash english the companion to the trash maths series is now hot off the press, with more of the stupid and downright degenerate humour this series is famous for you'd be foolish not to complete the set with this the most intellegent issue yet.


Sample question:

Unit 7.
Q:Look carefully at the following sentence and see if you notice anything special about it:
“The quick brown fox jumped over the cunting dog.”




A:This sentence is famous for being possibly the shortest and most easily understood sentence in English that uses almost all the letters of the alphabet. The missing letters are l, a, z, and y.

Available now at the dual plover store for the princely sum of AUD$5 (you can't even buy a sandwich for that much)
