The third night of Unsound Adelaide ends with a colourful bang with the Australian debut of Senor Coconut, the incredible 8-person band headed by Uwe Schmidt aka Atom TM. Combining electronica, Latin flair and humour, Senor Coconut will reinterpret classics of the 70s and 80s, from Kraftwerk instrumentals to Sade, Prince and Michael Jackson. Opening is the world premiere of a new ensemble made up of three of Australia’s best instrumental musicians, pianist Chris Abrahams of The Necks, guitarist and experimental musician Oren Ambarchi and drummer Robbie Avenaim. Bridging the two acts is the “militant space music and / or Fluxus techno” of Norwegian-Catalan duo N.M.O., a physical and humour-filled show involving percussion and electronics.
