The Thorn Variations EP launch BRISBANE with Requin

Dirt Hand is proud to present to you The Thorn Variations, 4 songs arranged around a single rhythm, performed by 9 of Australia's most generous and gifted musicians and all sounding a little like Nina Simone bludgeoning Leonard Cohen over the head with a rubber chicken.

To celebrate the release Dirt Hand will be performing a special rendition of the original recording process with a handful of Brisbane's finest. Featuring members from Gabriella Cohen, Moreton, Big Dead and Skinny Jean, the show will recreate the original experiment alongside some of Dirt Hand's usual melancholic hip-shakers specially re-arranged to suit the intimate setting of The Junk Bar's Skukum Lounge.

Joining them on the night will be local art-pop heroes, Requin. Requin found their name in the malfunctioning television of a local fish and chip shop. The screen was caught uncontrollably switching between Australian TV quiz ‘Deal or no Deal’ and a French news channel reporting a shark attack (un attaque de requin). In an odd way, the same tension and release between different worlds can be seen in Requin’s creation of intricate, art-focused pop music.
