dualpLOVER

dualpLOVER is the musical orphanage for those square pegs that have trouble being placed in round holes. Since our foundation in 1995 slowly, steadily and surely we have released a highly diverse range of music from Australia and abroad. Everything from avant-pop to folk to noise to hip-hop to vaudeville to post punk to parody to electronica etc has bared our name. We are also a distributor of a startling array of musics from all over, a broker for CD/DVD manufacturing with special rates for independant artists/labels with cd's starting from $0.94 inc GST we are among the cheapest in Australia for cd manufacturing, shop around if you don't believe us (We actually run a label and are not out to gouge independant artists if you wanna know why our prices are so cheap), a promoter of shows and tours. We pride ourselves in our doing these things differently from most and cherish all things independent.

NAKED ON THE VAGUE - THE BLOOD PRESSURE SESSIONS

NAKED ON THE VAGUE - THE BLOOD PRESSURE SESSIONS

CD from dualpLOVER

Following from their self-titled single, Naked On The Vague's debut album, 'The Blood Pressure Sessions', dives deep into a world of apocalyptic pop and psychedelic weirdness... Lucy and Matthew's disparate vocals grip onto stabbing keys and menacing hook-laden basslines, pushed on by an unrelentless drum machine far past the end of its warranty period. Essentially this is a 'punk' assault packaged into nine distinct tracks that range from some almost dance-able short and sharp 'hits' to gloomy extended freak-outs. Taking direction from where the short lived no-wave movement ended Naked On The Vague expand on what that imploded scene could have garnished had it not succumbed to its own fatalistic shortcomings.

AL DUVALL - the timid mischief

AL DUVALL - the timid mischief

CD from dualpLOVER

An unguided tour guide down memory Lane, turn of the century style American folk. Played on banjo, kazoo, guitar, musical saw, and a collection of spittoons, frying pans and medicine bottles. Al's vaudevillian songs are heaped in black wit, double entendre and clever word play about kleptomaniacs, Moonshiners, criminals, loners and even more shadowy figures. The music is a mix of old-timey, ragtime, sea shanty, Victorian parlour and jug band. Recorded on wax cylinders and other lo-fi devices, these songs were meant to be written between 1900 and 1930; he just never got around to it until now. "his lyrics strike with all of the bravado of a Tom Waits album, but with a twinge of the old Vaudeville" - Folk it Up

TOXIC LIPSTICK - PRISONER OF HORMONES

CD from dualpLOVER

Toxic Lipstick are 2 14 yr old hotties dropping the bass and breaking hearts in sunny Brisbane, Australia.

NEW WAVER - NEUTERS

NEW WAVER - NEUTERS

CD from dualpLOVER

A retrospective 'best off' taken from New Wavers infamous cassette series spanning the 90's. Essentially Top 40 hits with the lyrics changed to address all aspects of loserdom, Or Weird Al with an extremely pessimistic neo-Darwinian world view. In the New Waver world, everything comes down to survival of the fittest, a land in which the strongest and most dominant triumph and the rest are sidelined, ostracised, beaten up, and generally have miserable, pointless lives. "Boring folks from the tax office singing boring songs from the 80s sounding tired, bored and beaten down by society. It sounds terrible, but it's not. It's genius." – Inpress Magazine. "Had Jean-Paul Sartre been born in Brisbane or Canberra, he could well have come up with something like this." – Dev.Null

VOLVOX - EGG, PLUTO PUP AND YOU

VOLVOX - EGG, PLUTO PUP AND YOU

CD from dualpLOVER

Volvox were one of the most extraordinary bands ever to emerge from Melbourne, or infact anywhere else. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, during their short existence (1991 to 1996) they never played outside of that city. Describing the unsettling nature of the Volvox sound is somewhat difficult without pointing out one unmistakable feature, the vocals style of Anthony Riddell (aka 'Lester Vat'), their all-stumbling neurologically damaged front-man, whose infamous fall at the Redfern squats in the late 80s left him in a coma for months, and then with a significant movement disorder. Our 2005 CD reissue of their second cassette Egg, Pluto Pup and You, marks the final installment of Spill and Dual Plover's reissue trilogy following our earlier (and now sold out) reissues of 'bad earth' (first cassette) and 'the damage begins at the mouth' (previously unreleased material). This series is an effort to preserve for all time one of Australia's true outsider outfits. "perhaps the best band of their time. Certainly, "Huhnenblut" is worth the lives of ten thousand Cobains." - Tom Smith, Bananafish
