#STDRUMS - This is Yuji “Rerure” Kawaguchi's solo project. He has been traveling all around the world with his "D.I.Y. " custom made suitcase drum kit. Upon visiting John Bonham's grave in UK, he witnessed so many styles of buskers in London and was convinced to start this solo project. Tearing up the streets into a dance floor with his energetic performance, and music video of him performing inside the London underground (metro) has stirred hype throughout the world. Constantly going to Europe for his street busking tour, in 2017 he started to begin shows at clubs and venues. With more aggressive tracks and hard & groovy beats, claiming himself "THE DRUMMER VERSION OF SQUAREPUSHER”. During his stage, you will experience a mouthful of drums in your ears!


BLISTERED TENTACLE "When adrenaline met the sea, it began mutating into a tentacle of blistered proportions, and came into the world kicking and screaming. Like you should be, if ya' fuckin dreaming!"
"This monster spits rhymes over DnB, breaks and whatever. MC's of the sea! Combination fried rice, Adrenalina and UrSea."

Rosario De Marco

Rosario is a gifted musician and composer. He can create a Mediterranean atmosphere with just a guitar. His style is something between melodious picking and rhythmic percussive playing. The general impression is aggressive and experimental, he adds a lot of influences into his original tunes but it always sounds somehow rooted in the Mediterranean, yet with a unique flavour to it.

His music captures the warmth and passion of the Southern European lands, taking elements from flamenco, jazz, classical, folk and popular music. With this mixture of different musical inspirations, he creates his own personal and highly melodious style…

He has released a number of CDs, including "Light and Shadows" "Roots" and "Intuition".

Performances include as the support act for Omara Portuondo (Buena Vista Social Club), and Ladysmith Black Mambazo at the Melbourne Concert Hall. He can also be heard on radio stations such as SBS, 3AK, ABC and 3MBS.

The Man From Atlantis

The Man From Atlantis is the moniker for Mike Sill (Ray Of Creation / Imperial Leatherman), and when playing solo he is informed by the American Primitive idiom traversed by John Fahey and Robbie Basho.

These forms explore the terrain where improvisation and spontaneity coalesce and are best experienced with the third eye uncalcified or in the confines or your local public bar or honky-tonk.
