Dashville’s festival of loud Thrashville just got a little louder with the second crop of volume enthusiasts hitting the September shindig.
And, once again, the lineup alchemists over at Dashville HQ have spun some more sonic gold with the one and only Kim Salmon leading the charge for the second announcement.
And Kim Salmon’s Smoked Salmon is joined by Sydney heavy groove merchants Black Rheno, Brissy heavy rock behemoth Goatzilla, Australia’s favourite psychedelic rock and roll occultists Neptune Power Federation, politically-charged powerhouse Ezekiel Ox & The Evidence, Sydney thrashers Dark Order, sludge-doom exponents Mountain Wizard Death Cult, bone-rattling Newy punk-n-rollers The Grounds, the sinfully cheeky tongue-in-something spectacle Lover Lamp, Maitland punk chicks Ragdoll, and Armidale/Uralla post-punks The Warts.
Add that heady brew to the already announced New Christs, Cable Ties, Flaming Wreckage, The Owen Guns, Rick Dangerous & The Silkie Bantams and, boy howdy, that’s a festival!
He’s been a Scientist, a Beast of Bourbon, and a Surrealist. Since forming Perth’s first punk band The Cheap Nasties, Kim Salmon has parlayed his love of noise into a career that has seen his sonic output influence the likes of Nirvana, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Sonic Youth, The Drones and Spaceman 3 (to name a few).
This year, Kim got the legendary Scientists back together for their first album in 34 years – the utterly brilliant Negativity.
However, with members of the band strewn across this COVID-torn earth, Kim will bring his latest incarnation Kim Salmon’s Smoked Salmon to Thrashville, so expect from his illustrious back catalogue as well as soon-to-be gems.
Thrashville is on at Dashville on Saturday 11 September. Head here for tickets.
