Lasergun presents: Fluorescent & Ladyboy LIVE
Sunday 9th April
$$$FREE entry

Support: Dave Pham, Not happy Jan and Tim from Cut Copy

Yes we know Lasergun was on a few weeks ago, and after Trentemøller you'd think we'd be taking a break but the Honkytonks God pass's down the rules like Moses with the commandments and who every argued with Moses- This month we have some special guests.. Fluorescent live and wait for it... Ladyboy live too...

Thanks to the crew at Refectory5, Lasergun is having a double header this month with 2 awesome acts that have never played for us before...Local hero's are Dave Pham, Not happy Jan and for the first time Tim from Cut Copy.( we love those boys!!)

BBQ detail will be announced next week, but we'd like to give a shout out to our master Chef from last week Richie you are the man... the Salads were a nice touch!!

Fluorescent's music sits in an (un)familiar void that attempts to continue the unfinished business of various- early 90's musical explosions, joining the dots between their-their guitar-washed/indie dream-pop influences -to their-colder electro & new wave roots.

Guitarist Simon Castricum remarks, "I always liked indy bands in the late 80's and early 90's with drum machines - the Jesus & Mary Chain always seemed more about mechanics and electronics than rock and roll. I always wanted to know what Ride with a drum machine would sound like or what would a record produced by Alan Moulder and Giorgio Moroder sound like-"

They began performing in early 2004 as a two piece laptop band, with Simon on vocals & guitar, and Naomi Castricum on bass & synth. After two years of refining their early demos and live performances with bands like Cut Copy, Pnau & Midnight Juggernauts, the band retreated into their home studio to record.

The result was their 2005 debut Post Nuclear; an intense mix of cold, moody synthpop, atmospheric and energetic indie guitars atop hypnotic electro beats. 2006's-"Cattle Brand" remix ep features mixes by their Melbourne electro heroes Greg Dickinson,-Askew, Peter Finger &-Harris Robotis, and is a taster of further directions for the band.
