Event: Suicidal Rap Orgy, Diablo Negro, DJ Smallcock & The Purple Duck
Venue: Lanfranchis Memorial Discoteque, Sydney
Date:
Music: Hip Hop, Noise, Experimental

When i arrived there were already people on stage, i was pleasantly surprised to discover an entire evening of hip hop. There was a new stage since i was last at the Lanfranchis Memorial Discoteque and Passenger Of Shit looking artwork dominated the interior of the space. There was a huge hole in the roof above the stagewith a rope net slung under it. The stage then had a catwalk sticking out with a childrens playset with slide on the end leading into an old school clam shaped baby pool.
I have now discovered that the man on stage when i arrived goes by the name of 'The Purple Duck' or MC Syphon, he has some talent and i quite enjoyed his set. During the set he he called up a number of other MCs from the audience to rhyme with him, of particular note was a guy rhyming in what sounded like Japanese. I have heard Jap hip hop in tha past and i really enjoyed the few tracks this guy performed, one of the highlights of my night. Next up was Lanfranchis' resident scientist DJ Smallcock, he seems to be experimenting with something new and interesting all the time. He walked on stage wearing a belt with many guitar pedals attached to it all connected to one piece of flat glass (i assume, may of been another clear material). He then proceeded to wrap his legs and feet around the earlier described suspended rope net, touching the glass was making noise and so was holding it in his teeth. There now appeared to be some technical difficultiesthat were finally sorted out by bypassing one pedal in the chain. The smallcock then leaped back onto/into the ropes once again suspended by legs and feet and launched into some of the best live noise i have heard. The glass in mouth seemed to create unlimited shades of noise that were made even more insane sounding from the swinging and running out of breath. The whole thing ended with a drop from the ropes into a droning mess of body and equipment.
Number three was Diablo Negro, one member is Fraughman and if you are familiar with his tunes you are familiar with the basic sound of Diablo Negro. Just think Fraughman with hip hop beats. By his side was a young lady and together they rhymed, shouted and cursed for at least a good half hour. A bit like Suicidal Rap Orgy with more intelligent lyrics. Very awsome i cant wait for a release. Before the end of there set they managed to blow the sub woofer and a hat was passed around to raise money for a new one, they managed to get one in probably less then half an hour much respect to those guys.
Last but certainly not least was the Suicidal Rap Orgy. From what i understand this was there second performance, i was at the first and dragged as many friends as possible to this one promising them a show that would not soon be forgotten. The set started with the main MC and the DJ standing next to the stage, i was thinking the entrance isnt wasnt really as interesting as last time when all of a sudden about 8 - 10 (i forgot to count on the night) came through the roof clambering down the rope net. They then launched into what i think is there trademark (or most practiced) song 'Blood Clot Lunch'. I recognice this track because i had heard it on a compilation before even the first gig. During the first gig the nakedness seemed to be accidental, this time the girsl were only wearing panties by the end of the second or third song and some of the guys were not much better off. I was glad i knew what to expect as i was able to come this time with the sole aim of enjoying some auto-erotic brutal violent hip hop. The main MC seemed to have his cock in hand for the entire show which was fucking hilarious. The CD was released on Smallcocks 'Dual Plover' and according to the Dual Plover website there have been some complaints that the gig/CD is too juvenile. I thought that was there point? you have to have some serious issues of your own to even consider taking these guys seriosly. For example the only other track i recognised off the cd was 'Terds Are The Master'. Various unintelligable verses interspersed with the chorus 'terds are the master'. A classic imature, juvenile, disgusting song if i ever heard one. The rest of the live set can be summed up with a few words: Baked Beans, Climbing & Masturbation.
