New Weird Australia presents the second annual Unpopular Music event, a benefit for Sydney’s FBi Radio.  Since July 2009, the not-for-profit station has supported the New Weird Australia project by broadcasting its two-hour show every week.  Via this platform, New Weird Australia has given exposure to over 400 innovative and experimental artists from around the country, and Unpopular Music represents the chance to give something back.  All of the artists are donating their time, with all proceeds going directly to FBi, helping to ensure the ongoing survival of Sydney’s home of new music.

The six-act line-up is headlined by Scattered Order, one of the most unique players in the history of Sydney’s experimental and electronic music scene – founders of the M Squared record label in 1970s, a home for artists such as Systematics and Makers of the Dead Travel Fast, and a beacon for emerging underground artists around the country.  Reforming their original line-up in 2009, Scattered Order play ‘Unpopular Music’ in support of their new album, ‘Adjust The Terminology’.

The bill also includes:
Tantrums – four-piece midi-evil disco outfit from Melbourne, whose debut release ‘Anomie’ is soon to be released via New Weird Australia’s label imprint, New Editions
Scissor Lock vs Cleptoclectics – two of Sydney’s best known experimental electronic producers going head-to-head for the first time at Unpopular Music
Melodie NelsonMoonmilk’s Lia Tsamoglou in warped, alt.pop mode
Stitched Vision – solo synth / noise / drone project from Newcastle’s Jason Campbell, founder of cassette-label Eternal Solitude
Mere Women – dark, minimalistic pop & post punk from recently formed Sydney trio, who previous projects include Ohana, Little A, The Thaw & Bare Arms

FBi Radio is a not-for-profit community radio station and is 100% independent  It relies on the generosity of its supporters to keep it on air and to thus maintain its support of innovative local music. Help support the cause by supporting Unpopular Music.
