' the most inventive and innovative Australian band
of the post-punk era.'
(Donat Tahiraj, Time Off, November 2005)IT STARTED with a brief reunion - for one glorious song,
all 15 minutes of it - in London last year; now
The Laughing Clowns play Brisbane again.
The re-formed band will play the All Tomorrow's Parties festivals
in New South Wales and Victoria as well as the Up Late series at
GoMA. It will feature original members Kuepper, Wegener and
Elliott, double bassist Bif Millar, who joined in 1982, and keyboard
player Alister Spence.
Almost 25 years to the day since their last Brisbane show,
Ed Kuepper's early '80s band The Laughing Clowns will do a show
at the Gallery of Modern Art.
It's fitting the Clowns should re-form for a performance at GoMA,
since the band had such a strong artistic aesthetic:
Individual and original, pushing the boundaries
of what rock music could do.
Great news and so cheap at a 10th of the price of the last concert
I got tickets for and at my favorite place in Brisbane,
