koala does australia

I know I'm supposed to be taking the piss or whatever, but after dealing with stacks of pro publicity month in and month out, I can't help but to have a soft spot in my heart for people who do their own PR. Here's the word from Kid Koala , via DJ Jester, on Short Attention Span Theatre tour dates in Australia later this month (+ Jester dates in New Zealand):
"...Inspired by episodes of 'The Muppet Show' and 'Monty Python's Flying Circus'. I imagined if all the Muppets bought turntables and did an episode of the show on stage it might end up a little like this. There are loud moments, there are melancholy moments and there are silly moments. It's DJ Jester, P-Love and myself with 8 turntables set up in five turntable stations like a band (one for each layer of the track) and we have to move around between the different stations depending on what we're doing on each track. On some tracks I'll be doing drums and piano so there's a lot of running around which is all part of the fun. The whole thing is set up so you can figure out where all the sounds are coming from and which DJ's are doing what. It keeps it pretty dynamic that way. There's a drum turntable set up, there's a solo turntable set up and there's two sets of piano turntables. There's also a piano on-stage which we use to do some of the piano and turntable routines from the 'Nufonia Must Fall' soundtrack and we're doing a slide show to introduce the audience to some of the characters from the books and to set the scene for some of the musical pieces. We've also got some short animated films by Monkmus. They're really demented! There's one about a wine drinking pterodactyl and there's one about inflatable crocodiles and cockroaches flying into space." --Kid Koala
