This time around on the wonderfully fresh New Weird Australia podcast series we have a humourless interview and ill advised live acoustic set from Newcastle improv dullards Crab Smasher. If you use itunes. you can subscribe to the whole series of podcasts here. Check it out!
By their own admission, Crab Smasher are a NSW based group of “improvisational sound sharks crafting a frenzied hodgepodge of weirdo psychedelic noise rock and experimental pop delicious”. Having morphed through a variety of lineups and styles since their formation in 2002, their current incarnation took time away from recent Sydney gigs to visit the New Weird Australia radio show with guest presenter Brooke Olsen. The band deliver a rare live acoustic set and discuss what it means to be “the first carbon neutral noise band”, playing in a Newcastle scene big enough to fill a small living room.
