DJ Foundation

Hot Girls Hot Guys
Mosul turntablist-anarchist DJ Foundation's latest tune-in-progress which we can't resist letting you hear. So far his singles 'god is dead/i shot u babe' & 'ghad/USA' (both on metal postcard) have laid religious texts over american porn and set jihadists to Chic, all with his effortless east/west pop party vibe. Those tracks have picked up support from Ibiza to xfm (check his amazing Remix session on www.myspace.com/thedjfoundation) with features in DJ mag and mixmag.

Now he's sent us a new track apparently based around some Wall St kid boasting on you tube of his party habits.

"hi sean i heard this american guy on youtube, funny. he's 23 like me but our lives are different! he he has a lot of money for his bottles and girls. but I see the USA are losing their money. they invade iraq for our oil but they still lose money, are they stupid haha."

Wow have just signed to major label Levity in Australia after releasing their debut 7” with us. We gather there’s a new CD single on the way soon from them. We hope they become world famous and all of that
As our sign off to the Wow Metal Postcard collaboration we have one final gift for you .. The dsico remix of their tune When You’re Dead. We’ll probably get sued for giving this away now the suits are involved.

Like all dsico productions it’s just fab and you’d be mad not to have this in your itunes

Above link is a nice fat file for those of you who want a bit of quality on th track. If you just want it on your ipod probably best to download the small mp3 on the http://www.myspace.com/metalpostcardremixed player

Dsico "Touch Me (Not Like That)" EP
The Aborted Album: A collection of almost completed songs recorded in the years 2006 - 2007. I suppose I"ve been a bit busy with other things over the last couple of years and never quite managed to finish these off as an album. Rather than simply let them languish on a hard-drive I thought I might as well put them out in some sense... So here is the entirely free, reasonable high quality MP3 copy of the so called album...

All songs written, recorded, played and all that stuff by Luke Collison. Recorded in various houses in Newtown, Ashfield and Stanmore (Sydney Australia) between 2006 and 2007. or some perhaps even 2005.

Also on our ..............


Crystal Sun

Great news! Just when we thought the summer couldn't get any better - it has! One of our favourite beat masters has remixed one of our favorite tracks from Landscape - The killer new album from The Crystal Sun!

Yup - its true, wunderkid/wunderkind Dsico has bought his own inimitable flair and groove to Not All Those That Wonder Are Lost and the result is mega.

As ever we here at 12 Apostles are keen to share the love, so the remix is here for all to enjoy for free here

In addition to a string of top quality releases on Metal Postcard, Spasticated and Gang of Youth, Dsico has long been a master of the remix and reinterpretation. His 'Smells Like Teen Electro' was played out in clubs the world over and featured on Tom Middleton's Cosmosonica Crazy Covers Vol 1, as well as being a firm favourite in Bjork's DJ sets. He also contributed a storming cut to the Lord Lucan is Still Missing 12" here at 12 Apostles that scored us a top 10 position in the BBC Radio 1 Festive 50.

Ollo MySpace

Due very soon on 12 Apostles is the ollo remix album “If Thief” With some great mixes of tracks from their underground hit album of 2007 “The If If”

Coming straight out of Sydney.. only formed in November last year come WOW with two great scuzz electro punk tracks..Common Species & When You're Dead

Here's some info about the band and feedback they've already been getting

UK release slated for 10 March and Aus release 1 April. We'll also have a US download release date set for May / June soon

MySpace is http://www.myspace.com/wowsydney

WOW is:
Matt Cribb Vox / Guitar / Electronics
Bree Carter Vox / Bass

WOW is the brainchild of Sydney resident Matt Cribb, the collective result of not being able to play any instruments properly and spending too much time locked in the back room of his house, with a strobe light on, messing around with drum machines and cheap keyboards.

Bree Carter rounds off the boy / girl duo, bringing her amazing sixth sense of pop sensibility to the table, and an ability to know what sounds belong in what parts and which songs need what sounds and where to put those sounds and so on and so on.

WOW passed around some home recorded demos in November 2007 which resulted in high rotation on FBi radio in Sydney and several appearances on Triple J’s Unearthed website and television show as a “featured artist”.

WOW then went on to play their first few live sets, supporting groups such as Crystal Castles from Canada, Pets With Pets & The Emergency from Melbourne, and Theatre Of Disco & Cassette Kids from Sydney, and also appearing at Sydney’s Field Day festival at the Domain on New Years Day, alongside Girl Talk, Spank Rock, Uffie, Midnight Juggernauts, Damn Arms & many more.


Rock n Roll Wire

This Sydneyside duo -- who formed in November -- have hit on the kind of emotional static where early Factory releases and Euro synthwave reside. Totally killer.

The Sunday Experience (UK)

Those of you who love your electro slightly dipping below the out there regions of left field minimalism may do well to check this out. WOW are Australian boy / girl duo Bree and Matt who it seems have a thing for acutely icy and primal no wave / new wave dialects, their retro recipes disturbingly consumed by edgily paranoiac detached accents and bearing down with a de-sensitised monochromatic knowingness, all at once caustic, acerbic and fractured 'common species' is a futuristic mantra of sorts.

Frankly all considered cool record collections need this.

Drum Media music mag in Australia 28 Feb 2008

Horrifically out of tune boy / girl vocals, electronic drums that sound like someone alternatively kicking a cupboard and slapping an aluminium roof with a cricket bat, hollowed out bass guitar, guitars sharp enough to garrotte people with a laser-gun-duet-on-a-vintage-spaceship sounds - yes, WOW is the non-musician's musician / explorer in the garage having the recording party of a lifetime. Pointless trash wearing a try-and-guess-if-we're-being-ironic sneer, this should do fantastically well.

Very tasty dance pop track. It's fun. It moves. It makes you want to move. That's all I need. Thanks WOW.
Dan Buhagiar Senior Music Program Producer

The end product .. is brilliant: disco-punk, with an element of pop to it... Each song maintains it’s own individuality throughout, a rarity in modern times in which songs just seem to amalgamate into one general ‘sound’. If you were to throw The Lost Valentinos, Crystal Castles and Gang of Four into a blender, you’d end up with a WOW smoothie.
Illegal Tender Magazine

WOW. .low-fi hipster guitar dance. Common Species just does it for me. I'd go as far as saying it's the perfect house party track Really great..
Have Fun Blog

Sydney boy/girl duo WOW seem to have come up out of nowhere — and bam, hitting us upside the head In short WOW encompasses that signature Australia sound you already know and love: dirty synth mixed with guitar that will make you shake and dance in your skinny jeans.
