REGURGITATOR, SEJA & MINDY MENG WANG PERFORM THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO
CANBERRA THEATRE – FRI 2 FEB 2018
Brisbane art-rock veterans Regurgitator may not be the first act to come to mind when picking teams for a The Velvet Underground & Nico tribute. But Regurgitator have never met a musical genre they couldn’t lovingly poke a few holes in, or a tongue-in-cheek performance-art stunt they didn’t like the flavour of.
Originally conceived to close the Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, the show returns for a special Canberra encore – with Quan, Ben and Peter joined by Seja on keys (and some key vocal duties) and Mindy Meng Wang on the Chinese guzheng.
Brisbane’s Regurgitator hit the Australian music scene in 1994 and quickly established themselves as articulate and witty purveyors of their unique mishmash of funk, punk, pop, electronics and any other style that stuck to the sides with their unmitigated irony and geekish nature.
Then, in late 2013 they decided to take some time away from the scene. Now back playing they take a loving poke with a faithful but fresh reinvention of one of the greatest albums of all time is a love letter from one set of enduring eccentrics to another.
All highly saturated in the inevitable exploding visuals as curated by Ken Weston.
