UNIT20 celebrated 20 years of UNIT. OCT 2017. The only performance Regurgitator did to deconstruct this concept. Co-produced with Trent Weekes, and performed at the Gold Coast Convention Centre for the EB GAMES 20th anniversary games conference.
Unit is but a pixel in time. A spec in the Australian music cultural cosmos. In itself a chimerical reaction to a love of music past. Forged in a self-created Dirty Room studio in the Fortitude Valley over a few weeks in August 1997 after returning from an extensive US tour with Helmet & The Melvins… then set adrift in the molecular world by Warner Music on NOV 3 1997. First conveyed into the live stratosphere at a ski club in the northern climes of Darwin on a balmy Halloween eve… this self-effacing monster of a retrotech platter stirred the self-styled opening jeer of I like your old stuff better than your new stuff, tumbling all that chose to follow into the rapidly embraced new stuff of beeps, blips and all out pop-rockin’ fun. Unit resolutely found its link in the musical DNA of the day and 20 years down the track this yellow dot still glows with all the intensity it rose that day to greet us with. The UNIT20 collaboration with EB Games strived for a unique multi-dimensional ocular moment, the only live revisitation that was emitted across the double decade point in time… and even more the gratification to have been joined in that celebration by musical compatriots Art vs Science along with 7 Bit Hero to help transmit the light and sound. Pong on indeed!
