DEAD vs. MoE pissing contest in April

Melbourne duo DEAD will tour with Norwegian trio MoE in April in what promises to be a pissing contest of low-end, high-output and DIY cred.

MoE are eternally touring noise rock/avant garde DIY stalwarts fronted by the omnipotent Guro Moe – she who wields subsonics like no other.

DEAD drummer Jem Moloney told UB that DEAD met MoE after the two bands shared space on the Fiends in Low Places compilation cassette on Eolian Empire Records.

“We related to them instantly because they are clearly nerds and probably even more daggy than us,” said Jem. “They also tour relentlessly.”

UB asked Jem why the tour is going to be awesome and he replied: “We’ve been at this caper our whole lives; we live for music. At this point we have no patience left for mediocrity. We wouldn’t bother bringing a band half way across the world unless we knew they were a fucking force to see live. And we wouldn’t bother going on tour unless we were willing to put the effort in to playing a good show.

“We’re opinionated pricks at the best of times but a harsher judge of ourselves than anyone else. The shows will be great because a lot of work has gone into making them that way. And the line-ups are killer.”

Remember that time John Farnham sold out 17 concerts at the Tennis Centre? This will be nothing like that.
