The Spinning Rooms (Melb) / The Peep Tempel / Milkk / 18.10.11
Friday 18th October // 7pm // All-ages
Melbourne’s own, The Spinning Rooms, are set to release their second album in as many years, Complicating Things, on Friday 27 September via Every Night Is A Saturday Night Records.
To spread the word, they’re coming to Sydney for the first time!
Joining them at Black Wire Records are old mates The Peep Tempel who are no strangers putting out amazing albums and killing it live.
This show is a part of their first ever East Coast tour, taking in Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart with a berth on All Tomorrow’s Parties ‘Release The Bats’ festival thrown in the middle somewhere.
Complicating Things was recorded and mixed by Tom Lyngcoln (Harmony, The Nation Blue) and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control) – the same team that delivered their self-titled, self-released debut album. Complicating Things is a weird deviation from what was already a strange path. Like a drunk taking their multiple personality disorder out for a spin, it lurches from one corner of the pub to the other, charming and offending anyone stupid enough to engage.
As well as being handpicked to play the ATP festival alongside The Breeders, Television and The Scientists, 2013 has seen The Spinning Rooms support the likes of Dinosaur Jr, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, and Primitive Calculators, as well as slots on much-loved Melbourne backyard festivals, Applecore, Paddock Bash, All Good In The Wood, and a live-to-air for PBS’s Drive Live with The Meanies.

‘…the Melbourne band is inherently a quivering mass of sweat, fear, tension and fetid brilliance.’ – Brendan Telford, themusic.com.au
