Antipodean Killin' Machine

January was a month filled with haunting reminders of how much I like music from New Zealand and Australia. First off, Andrew got Flight of the Conchords Season 2 on DVD for Christmas, so we spent a day watching New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo.

Then I got a hankering to listen to New Zealand's third most popular '80s band The Chills.


Which led me to track down my favourite song by New Zealand's second most popular '80s band, Split Enz.


One of my favourite videos of all time: Hunters and Collectors Talking to a Stranger.


On Friday we had a lovely dinner at Vicky Bell's place. Australia's The Triffids Raining Pleasure</a> came on the ol' iTunes. Made me stop in my tracks. Always did.


And yesterday Pauly Fuemana from OMC died. While his hit How Bizarre</a> was not obscure. I thought it seemed like a strange close to a month spent (musically) down under.

Multimedia may seem like a slack catch-all term, but not when it's applied to artist Christian Marclay,ed hardy who likely had a hand in making the word necessary in the first place. Planted squarely at the nexus of avant-garde art, music, and turntable culture, Marclay was digging through thrift-store record bins and making experimental remixes back when old-school cats like Kool Herc were just pioneering the art of DJing themselves. In the subsequent decades, Marclay's gone on to create collages, sculptures, videos, and collaborative musical performances that redefine the rapport between sound and art. Tonight, as part of Eyebeam's ongoing Focal Point series, he discusses the conceptual mashups otherwise known as his work.
