Taipan Tiger Girls – Live At The Melbourne Town Hall
LP / Digital (HEVMAC056)
Heavy Machinery Records and It Records are proud to present Taipan Tiger Girls’ third and final LP – an hypnotic, cosmic freakout that combines analogue electronics, drums, guitar and the mammoth drones of the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ.
Recorded live at Melbourne Music Week in 2017 in front of an ecstatic sold out hometown crowd, this record marks the zenith of the short but incendiary career of an extraordinary band.
An instrumental outfit with a relentless drive to experiment, Taipan Tiger Girls are composer, producer and all-round electric statesman Ollie Olsen (WhirlyWirld / Max Q / NO / Third-Eye / Psy-Harmonics), experimental drummer and synth obsessive Mat Watson (Boredoms BoaDrum / E.S.G / ULMD / Other Places), and feedback guitar droner and organist Lisa MacKinney (Mystic Eyes / Hospital Pass / Super-Luminum). Here they are joined by very special guest guitarist Bonnie Mercer (Grey Daturas / Hospital Pass / Breathing Shrine) while MacKinney commands the historic Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ.
Taipan Tiger Girls previously released two beloved and quickly sold-out albums via Melbourne indie imprint It Records: Taipan Tiger Girls #1 in 2015 and #2 in 2016.
This third and final outing from this remarkable band is a monument to the combined talents of a group of phenomenal musicians whose fusion created a magic elixir made all the more precious by its temporary nature. Live at the Melbourne Town Hall showcases the improvisatory prowess of the band at the peak of their powers and bolts off into the stratosphere in a thrilling surge of psychedelic expansion.
Raising Funds for Ollie
In 2022 Ollie Olsen was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy, an aggressive and degenerative condition for which there is currently no cure. All proceeds from the sales of the vinyl and digital versions of this album will go to assisting Ollie Olsen and his ongoing medical care, with love and admiration from Heavy Machinery and It Records and all his fans who appreciate him for the seminal musical force that he is and all the wonderful music he has gifted the world.
