Can anyone tell me what the last actual dj set was that floats around? All the sets i have are circa 2001 (Gimix, Ibiza, Breezeblock 1 & 2, etc. and all are steeped in SILY material....i wonder how their dj'ing has changed since then...apparently now they are big on african stuff more than the 70's and 80's rock blocks of old? And could this Splendour set be our first glimpse of some of the new original material? I am stoked! Wish i could be there!!!!

All good things come to those you wait, and we've certainly done our fair share of the waiting! :lol:

as the person who said that ;) i'd like to see dexter/dlcruz tracklistings included. nice to have all related info on one page.

maybe have a diff section (on the same avalanches.html page) that's marked as "avalanches-related", so newcomers can tell it's not exactly the avs per se?

btw, did anyone go to the record store recently + see **this** + think OMG NEW AVALANCHES? :shock:

Guilty on Sufjan! :roll:

The heart raced for just a second . . . and then I realised that if I hadn't read about it here first, then it wasn't what I was looking for!

Nice to see some excitement in the Avs community through. :wink:

Cheers.

Just to fill you guys in on 'other' sets post the 2001-2002 era...


Avalanches hibernated for a while until the Brains nights came along in 2004. These were the largely african fueled party nights in melbourne. The sets were rarely the same twice, until the show got taken on the road. Those sets were more or less loosely the same - Lots of calypso, african punk and favala type stuff. and very few 'pop' hits.

no one here bootlegged 'em though :(


Brains then sort of evolved into a full on party-DJ-set that culminated in a performance at Meredith Music Festival last year... The set was off the walls, i loved it anyway. Others here didn't...
I'd call it a combination of Brains and the av's older sets. They still had the percussion team on stage.


Their next radically different 'set' was earlier this year at Sydney's inaugural "laneway" festival... this was the one referred to as full of "80s rock/metal" and didn't have any extra percussion.

So... who knows what splendour's actually going to sound like?
I'll be there though, down the front. So i'll try get some pics for everybody.


All my Love
PENNY


PS: a friend of mine caught DJ Pepperoni at the Corner Hotel recently. Apparently Tone played the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" about 10 times. sounds about right :lol:

Tony plays out alone? Iguess you gotta make dough somehow when you only put out albums once every 5 or 6 years...but the Spice Girls 10 times? That doesnt sound funny, more like just plain irritating!
