Look, the word genius doesn’t get thrown around easy but we’re pretty chuffed with this next month’s list of topics for Goodgod’s signature Wednesday pop culture trivia.
After reviewing 2014, our first ever Music Trivia and a look back at Archer, we wrap the month with the most robust, divisive and addictive podcast since, well, This American Life. It’s This American Life’s newest radio baby Serial and it has literally taken over every social conversation we’ve had in 2014. Season One of the most downloaded podcast in history just ended, so join your hosts and the most vocal twitterers on the topic Lee Tran Lam and Matthew Vierboom and compete against a bunch of addicts on how exactly you pronounce Mailchimp?
Also in January we have the launch of our new kitchen! Stay tuned for details, but we’re confident that it’s going to be a comprehensive feast for your belly and brains! Get your teams together now and come in early for dinner so that your belly is full for what is going to be a very robust month of Goodgod Trivia.
Spicy garage punk trio Sloppy Kiss Soirée have in the last year released a demo titled ‘Frothing At The Mouth And Eating The Furniture’, an EP called ‘Schnitzelphrenia’, and a single named ‘A Silly Girl For A Real Dumb Boy’ – so fantastic names are clearly their thing.
With a delicious video clip in the works and a fresh EP to follow, they are currently tearing up Sydney’s live music venues with their catchy, dirty tunes and unorthodox yet compelling live performances,. In 2015 keep an eye and an ear out for these brand spanking fresh artists of good vibes!
Fresh from his Sydney Festival appearance, upcoming Brighton producer Leon Vynehall will be gracing Goodgod Small Club this Thursday, presented by our favourite party people Future Classic and BBE.
Inspired by the hip hop and funk tapes his mum played in the car, Vynehall’s recent EP ‘Music For the Uninvited’ out on Martyn’s 3024 label is one of the most compelling and eclectic house records of 2014, starting with a bold and beatless , mini-symphony to the analogue-soaked downtempo ending, it’s an emotionally transverse dance experience.
*”* ALL NIGHT HEAT BEAT PARTY *”*
NO ZU are Melbourne’s 8-piece body-music extravaganza – more of a family (or cult!) than any type of band. Otherworldly vocals, punctuating horn parts, housey synths, deep groove basslines and Latin percussion are the ingredients that make up their art-damaged sound. The moods of no-wave, boogie, dub, disco and salsa manifest into NO ZU’s very own ‘heat beat’.
For this special party, NO ZU will be joined by a 9th member. None other than Sal P of NYC post-punk, post-disco band Liquid Liquid. Heavily entrenched in the rich history of NYC’s underground, Liquid Liquid’s music was early inspiration during the formative years of the NO ZU family.
Further dancefloor heating by HAHA’s D&D, Jimmy Sing and a DJ set by Sal P himself. Plus more TBA.
