Coming Soon .. From Shanghai Death To Ponies extended EP Swine Water

Scary stuff !

Here’s the lowdown from Time Out Shanghai -

Death to Ponies are a musical portmanteau – a combination of frenetic metal twosome Death to Giants and DJ-production duo Acid Pony Club – who make for one of the most entertaining live acts in the city at the moment. Together, the foursome produce part-improvised, synth-backed metal and rock tracks where each musician is encouraged to play around with their own parts and create something on the fly.

‘We can genuinely say that each of our shows is different from the last,’ says bassist Dennis Ming Nichols. ‘It’s like jazz music in some ways, in that there’s a repetition of ideas and a framework that we’ll go to, but we’re not playing something that’s been written as such.’

Death to Giants began when Nichols, also of Rainbow Danger Club, joined Moon Tyrant’s Ivan Belcic to appear as Joy Division at Yuyintang’s 2010 Halloween show. Jamming together during rehearsals led to the two forming their own side project. Nichols’s work producing Rainbow Danger Club’s album meant that Death to Giants didn’t start playing shows until last summer, however.

When Laura Ingalls and Clement Pony of Acid Pony Club saw one of their early gigs, the pair immediately decided they wanted to join. ‘I just thought it was the best shit ever,’ says Ingalls. ‘I just walked up to Nichols and said “I want to be in your band.”’ Death to Ponies debuted after just one rehearsal as part of Friend or Foe’s album release last November.

‘Clem’s never been in a band before and this is the first one I’ve been in since I was 17,’ says Ingalls. ‘The DJ thing in Shanghai is getting so fucking annoying now that the opportunity to create something live is a great outlet.’

The idea of a creative outlet is something that rings true for all four musicians, with the sound significantly different from each of their other bands and projects. ‘We just collided,’ says Belcic. ‘We all really enjoy the improvisational aspect of it right now – there’s a kind of forced interaction on stage. But really, we’re only just beginning.’

And Eventually It’s Here – The Krom Monster Remixes 12″

A couple of years back UK based producer put together the Krom Monster CD with an Organisation called  Cambodian Living Arts that combined the sound of Cambodia with European electronics and traditional Cambodian instruments.

Here at Metal Postcard we hadn’t heard something so good since Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld, The Ultramarine albums and Eno’s work ( yes it’s that good)

So we asked David if he wouldn’t mind taking some of the tracks remixing them and we’d pop it on vinyl

One baby , 20 releases and 18 months after our original conversation here it is. And well worth the wait

Here it is on Bandcamp
