About this item

Melbourne party enthusiasts Animals Dancing launch their self titled label with the sophomore release from Krautback duo Coober Pedy University Band (Tornado Wallace & William Paxton AKA Tom Moore of Otologic). This completely bonkers ode to Australia's workshy, snake eating laughter bird is the best example of dancefloor didgeridoo since that Aphex Twin single I can't remember the name of... Once described as "a bit too mental for me", "Kookaburra" sees our intrepid composers pick up exactly where their Moon Plain release left off, that is at the ridiculous, silly and amazing end of the dancefloor spectrum. Essentially little more than an undulating didgeridoo line, a solid kick, bongo clatter and the maniacal laugh of the Kookaburra, the track is perfect in its simplicity. Also included is the hilariously named, Kookapella", an exotic tool which drops the didger to give more room to our feathered friend. A prominent member of our mail order department is sat sharpening the knives as I type this, but I think this is the most fun record I've heard in ages. Unique, a certain mood changer, tone setter and future classic you've gotta get on this.
