In June I’ll be making my first ever foray downunder for a performance with Jarboe as part of DARK MOFO, a massive annual event brought to us by MONA, Hobart’s lovely Museum of Old and New Art.
I’ve been working on sonic and visual aspects of the performance for a while and can’t wait to see it all come together. The entire festival will be an amazing experience, and this evening promises to be intense and memorable, with JG Thirlwell, Jarboe with me on guitar and winding up with Chelsea Wolfe.

PRESENTS CHOLERA NOCEBO
Based in New-York since 1983, JG and his aliases (Manorexia, Foetus, Steroid Maximus and Clint Ruin) have produced more than thirty albums which are dramatically confusing for an ear accustomed to the standards of adult cartoons. As a producer-arranger for Nine Inch Nails, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Lydia Lunch, Coil, Nick Cave and the Swans, he has created many rare acoustical phenomenons. At LUFF he will be playing his piece “Cholera Nocebo” –the harmful version of musical cholera’s placebo effect.
