Having returned from an 11-date/11-city tour of Japan, Fraudband do a Melbourne launch for the album that was released there on Tokyo's Plunk's Plan Recordings label. There is also a Fraudband / Donovan's Brain split LP dropping in August. Co-released via US label Career Records (with guests of the likes of Deniz Tek and Ric Parnell from Atomic Rooster & Spinal Tap on it).
For this double launch show, Fraudband will be joined by special guest, the one and only Paul Kidney (Paul Kidney Experience), reprising the pairings Japanese performances. Also Paul Rodgers (infinite decimals) will be bringing his unique, improvised visuals.
Backing up for this Tote band room show will be Fraudband's Japanese label/tour-buddies 20 Guilders, coming over from Tokyo and doing a support set. Additional support from fresh locals Competition Team and the excellent Light Magnetic (members of The Scientists / The Paradise Motel etc) - FYI. 20 Guilders are Tabata Mitsuru, (founder of Boredoms / Acid Mothers Temple Official etc) & Junzo Suzuki
