Centralian Advocate, Friday, December 14, 2012 39 P U B : C A D V D A T E : 1 4 -D E C -2 0 1 2 P A G E : 3 9 C O L O R : C M Y K Rockers roll on a mission to bring thrash back to Alice LEFT: Thrash metal band Exdemission Picture: CHARLIE LOWSON THOUGH they only formed less than six months ago, thrash metal crew Exdemission are quickly rising through the ranks of the Alice Springs metal scene. The five-piece band will release their EP I Made My Family Disappear tomorrow night at Bojangles, playing a rocking gig with veteran hard rockers NoKTuRNL and South East Desert Metal band. Bass player Dave Schulz said the band formed when his brother, Joel, wanted to bring the thrash back to Alice Springs. Joel said he wanted to work with me to lay down some tracks for a thrash metal project he was starting, Dave said. We started recording and then our bandmate Pirate started saying we should do live gigs. After we played at the Halloween gig a little while back we started getting really good feedback so weve decided to keep playing. Exdemission consists of Joel and Dave Schulz, Josh Wonky Bollard, Liam Hanley, and Pirate. Dave said while the name of the EP might sound sinister, it comes from the 90s film Home Alone. The three-song EP was recorded at Joels home in Alice Springs. Entry is free and the concert starts from 8.30pm. Switchover gives NITV fresh start IN a historic day for Australia, a dedicated indigenous television service became available to all Australians for the first time when National Indigenous Television (NITV) began broadcasting free-toair last Wednesday. The station was switched on in Central Australia by Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Senator Stephen Conroy, Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs Jenny Macklin, and renowned indigenous artists including Christine Anu, Casey Donovan and Troy Cassar-Daley. Senator Conroy said on Wednesday: I am honoured to be here at Uluru taking part in this historic day for indigenous broadcasting. I congratulate SBS and NITV for their achievement in establishing this new channel. It will deliver indigenous programming into every Australian living room, bringing a wider audience for its informative, entertaining and educational content. NITV broadcasted a day of special programming starting with a two-hour special From the Heart of Our Nation, direct from Uluru. SBS managing director Michael Ebeid said: With NITV part of SBS, we will reflect Australias true diversity and enable indigenous cultures and stories to be captured for future generations, with the availability of NITV to all Australians contributing to reconciliation. NITV channel manager Tanya Denning said: NITV creates and delivers innovative content representing the many voices of the countrys first Australians. We remain dedicated to having our unique languages and culture reflected within the media landscape and were excited to invite Australians of all backgrounds to tune in, and join us in celebrating our rich and unique culture. Cain Gilmour, Matty Burns, Ash McDonell and Gareth Dawkins are Stab Capital Picture: DEAN OPIE Out of the shadows into the spotlight Cameron Boon IT has been almost two years in the making, but Stab Capital will play its first Alice Springs show tonight. The members of the four-piece band have been anonymous for most of the time theyve been together, and even kept their names and faces secret after the launch of their self-titled EP. But now its out in the open Cain Gilmour, Ashley McDonell, Gareth Dawkins and Matty Burns have shown themselves to the world with the announcement theyre playing at the Adelaide Big Day Out, and say theyve got a huge show planned for Alice tonight. The hip-hop/hard rock collaboration started when drummer Matty Burns called MC McDee with a proposal. I was on holiday when Matty rang me and asked if I wanted to MC on this project, Ash said. I said Yeah, lets have a go, and everything has been going forward since then. The four are experienced musicians, and guitarist Cain says it has been a very professional process. We were all in a room having a jam and I came up with a little lick and then, bang, by the end of the session we had our first song, Cain said. The reason we waited almost two years to play a gig was because we wanted to be professional about it. We wanted to keep it real and have our bases covered. Stab Capitals songs are written by all members and range from punchy political pieces to more emotional fare. Their sound comes from the eclectic tastes of the band members, ranging from metal to hiphop to funk and blues. Theres an amalgamation of sounds, Ash said. We were able to get the sound we have because we took the time to refine it. Throughout our set, were going to take people on a ride. It isnt all balls to the wall, theres variety and we pull it back a little bit. Stab Capital are focusing on playing original music, saying theyve got a dozen songs including the four on the EP. Youve got to work a lot harder to keep an audience with original music, Cain said. A lot of us have done covers for years. Stab Capital will be supported by SkankMC and the Unknown Artists at the Dirt Festival at the Juicy Rump tonight from 10pm.
