Grandpa Abela (aka Justice Yeldham) is the latest alter-ego of Australian sound performer Lucas Abela, whose past sonic experiments were conducted under monikers like A Kombi, Dj Smallcock, Peeled Hearts Paste and more recently his band Rice Corpse. Initially classed as an experimental turntablist, though his early work rarely resembled anything in the field. Early feats, saw him stab vinyl with Kruger style stylus gloves, bound on electro acoustic trampolines, drag race the popemobile across Sydney Harbour Bridge, perform deaf defying duet duels with amplified samurai swords, hospitalised by high powered turntables constructed from sewing machine motors, record chance John Peel sessions with the Flaming Lips, & be Otomo Yoshihides’ favourite entry into his Ground Zero remix competition; ‘Consummation’ even though instead of sampling the CD he destroyed it using amplified skewers!
He also founded and runs dualpLOVER (recording label, cd/dvd replicators, distributor and promoter of gigs and tours). Principally a live audio artist he’s been performing professionally for the past 15 years, ever since Oren Ambarchi and Robbie Avenaim stumbled across his late night radio performances in 1994 and asked him to play their 2nd What is Music? Festival. Since he’s toured the world extensively, performing hundreds of shows in over 39 countries.
(experimental / avant garde / free-improvisation / free-noise / noise from Sydney, Australia)
https://www.instagram.com/justice_yeldham/A Magandjin (Brisbane)-based experimental dance/noise project of best friends Kim Day/Lesbian Merzbow and Yvette Ofa Agapow. Their music is an amalgamation of their shared interest in internet-born music, female rap, harsh noise & experimental media and touches on themes of sexual hysteria, being trans, stealing your boyfriend and most importantly – love.
