The return of Scattered Order with
"A solar rush towards a treble heaven".
Post/Punk noisemeisters continue
to confound audiences with their ever shifting collage of sounds
There's a dusty vault that people
occasionally nod towards, mumbling the words “Sydney Post Punk”.
There's a group called Scattered Order that every so often lurches
out of the shadows of that vault, plugs in some machines, busts up
some genres, hands over another recording and disappears once
They have been doing something
similar since 1979, when original
members Michael Tee and Mitch
Jones began to make noise together and founded the M Squared label
along the way. Despite becoming invisible for parts of their 30
plus year career, Scattered Order have remained determinedly
audible, with recordings on the M Squared, Volition, Rather be
Vinyl, Klanggalerie and Vinyl on Demand labels.
Stylistically they tend to
shapeshift with each recording project and
line up change. 2011 sees the band
joined by renowned sound artist Shane Fahey in a sonic assault of
samples, noise, guitars and
synthesisers. Having released the
limited edition CDr “It's behind
you” in May this year the band
have played several shows and continued to record, culminating in
“A sonic rush towards a treble heaven”.
With their assembled collection of
eccentric sound tools, Scattered
Order have spent this year
fermenting another set of dangerous sonic gases: sometimes absurdly
pleasant, sometimes scarily abrasive, always multi-layered and
certainly hurtling towards a blissful destination.
“Scattered Order has always been
about bending and treating a whole range of music sources and
influences. Using the personnel and technology that is to hand we
try to create music that sears your brain.” Mitch Jones 2009
If you can't stand the darkness
get out of the shade.
