DEF FX, Australia’s own electronic surf rock band of the 90s is returning to Australia in 2017 for a national tour. Fronted by the enigmatic Fiona Horne and joined by the original line-up, including founding guitarist Blake Gardiner – this is a show not to be missed! DEF FX will be joined onstage by US electronic industrial rock band My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult (often shortened to Thrill Kill Kult or TKK ) on their first ever visit to Australia.
“This 20 year reunion tour is a dream come true for the band and our Def Family of fans. It will be the first time in 24 years that Marty and I have performed with Def’s founding guitarist, Blake Gardner. And we’re super excited to be joined by our special guests, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult – we’re all going to party like its 1996! It’s going to be a healing, rocking time!”- Fiona Horne.
DEF FX are Australia’s number one surf electronic rock 90s band. Their music has been described as a fusion of psychedelia, industrial, grunge, electronica, and heavy metal, and in their early days, even reggae and disco. They released a number of albums in the 90s including Water (1991), Light Speed Collision (1992), Baptism (1993) and the ARIA Gold album Majick (1996).
Joining DEF FX is My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. Hailing from Chicago’s renowned Wax Trax Records stable of bands, THRILL KILL KULT creators Groovie Mann (lead vocals) and Buzz McCoy (keys/production) have been conjuring up sonic tales of blasphemy, sexcapades and kitschy horror for over 25 years. Their sound is a concoction of experimental, disco, rock, new wave, lounge and glam, interlaced with their signature “sampled dialogue” – a reflection of the duo’s musical influences, and insight into their taste in cinema.
