Preppers at Polizia gallery

Preppers is the inaugural exhibition at the new artist-run gallery Polizia, inhabiting the formerpolice station in the Fremantle CBD.  Artists Loren Kronemyer, Dan McCabe, and Guy Louden have come together to create "Preppers" based on a mutual fascination and investment in the prepping lifestyle.Preppers are a subculture of people that prepare for the collapse of society. They collect specialised survival products, skills, and knowledge. Prepping is both a hobby and a world view. It has its own aesthetics, vocabulary, and consumer objects, and also its own values and fantasies, centered around the moment of collapse and its aftermath. In this exhibition, artists examine this culture through sculptural, digital, and video art.In our emerging geopolitical era uncertainty is widespread. Prepping is the spirit of our times. For preppers, economic, environmental, technological, and military disaster is inevitable. Its menacing “tactical” survival skills and specialised outdoor gear reveal an apocalyptic individualism focused on preserving the self. The slick commodification of existential collapse reflect an absurd predicament, where preparing for total collapse of a society seems more desirable than improving it. Preppers are betting against the house: they are emotionally, financially, and socially invested in collapse.Exhibition opening 6pm Saturday 8th April (RSVP 9th - 16 April 2017Gallery open 12 - 4pm, Tues - Sunday and by appointment45 Henderson St Fremantle 6160

Desert Child

Formed in 1995 – Desert Child comprising the guitar talents of Guy Ghouse & Damian Watkiss Their music is a blend styles to create instrumental music which defies all contemporary genres. Both Guy’s and Damian’s parents played music together back in the early 1970’s and now the tradition continues. The catalyst for their music was the formation and cultivation in the Kimberley town of Broome in North Western Australia. “Broome being such a tourist mecca, saw us exposed to a variety of people from all over the globe, we listened to so much music and were fortunate enough to jam with backpackers and touring acts who’s individual styles reflected so much of world, ethnic and music not played on mainstream radio…we were lucky”. The result is something quite unique and fresh. We have been fortunate enough to perform this music all over the world, from Edinburgh Festival, to Austin Texas to London to Asia and a variety of Australian Festivals. Guy Ghouse & Damian Watkiss are two casual chaps with a shared love for music, good times and guitars. “A spontaneous yet emotionally charged musical journey describes the uniqueness of Desert Child. The music is a blend of many styles. Their guitar brilliance will astound you, their melodies move you. Very funny, High energy, Very warm and extremely expressive and entertaining”.

Returning to Perth for the first time in 20 years to join in the festivities of the West Coast leg of EVEN’S "Less is More" anniversary celebrations - HEADER are coming home!!

These shows also mark the relaunching of EVEN’S debut album ‘Less Is More’ as it celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and will give fans the chance to hear all the classics from the seminal album including the three hit singles, ‘Don’t Wait’, ‘Peaches and Cream’ and ‘Stop and Go Man’. In 1996, EVEN released their widely anticipated debut album ‘Less Is More’ through Rubber Records. The album was critically acclaimed and received an ARIA nomination for Best Independent release, and the band were named Rolling Stone Hot Band of the Year. The reissue of ‘Less Is More’ will be on vinyl only and available at all shows. For all fans purchasing a ticket in advance, EVEN are offering every presale ticket holder a free 7" picture disc with ‘Don't Wait’ from their debut album ‘Less is More’ on one side, and their latest single ‘Little Piece’ on the other.
