***Review under construction***

<Updat3:  It’s been a good couple weeks for non-traditional city events…we had dance, jazz and now SLEW…Oh, you haven’t heard?  Deets…

Now that you are in the ‘know’, understand that their live set is as hard to wrap your head around as calculus.   I am going to do my best to describe how it went down but you may have to do a little you tubing to get the full picture.

So as most of you may know, Kid Koala is the 2nd best record scratcher after Q-Bert.  The beauty of his style is that he doesn’t only concern himself with traditional cutting and scratch techniques (the crab, frrreesshhh, transformer…etc.)…he creates something completely new and fresh when he bless.  He is able to take sections of instruments that are on wax and mutate the sounds into whole new musical pieces.  He is able to customize a trumpet (guitar, bass, drum, xylophone, anything) solo by stopping, slowing, scratching, back spinning and cutting the few notes pressed on the vinyl into a cohesive display of dexterity.  And remember IT’S ALL VINYL…no digital DJ set up here.

Multiply that by 1.5 (P Love is good but not as good as KK), add a rock bassist and a drummer to try and get an idea of what was brewing.


At this point, you should click on the interview link with Kid Koala so he can explain the what and the why of this project…deets.


Me either.

The set and performance were incredible.

I don’t even know where to go with this.  I doubt I will ever get a chance to see something of this caliber again.  The time, energy and creativity that it took to put this together is unimaginable.  If someone finds this on you tube, will they send me the link….I’d like to re-live that night.–AV>
