Pretty Cool Monkeys

NT News Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.

Ben Langford 30/05/08

It's not a great thing to say, but if the electro-garage band Cooperblack weren't in Darwin they'd be stars. The band will draw a fair crowd to the launch of their new CD "My Art is Bleeding" tonight. But with a unique sound so confident it borders on the crazy, and uber-modern blend of electronics, chords and high pitched languages, the hip cats of Melbourne or Sydney would pack into clubs to hear them play. Luckily for Darwin, the band's leading light, singer-songwriter Jeremy Conlon, has no plans to move away from his adopted hometown. "My Art is Bleeding" is a more rocking affair than previous Cooperblack efforts, a fact that Conlon puts down to much of it being recorded live. With Simon Kormendy on synthesizer and his madly wailing theramin, this is a local band reaching the heights of their powers. And the influence of the German drummer Oliver Budack is clear, with the album's opening track "Affen Titten Geil" among the more bizzare points. the song's title translates as "horny tits monkey", which apparently is a popular way for old-school Germans to say "that's really cool".

feeds for this album, this artist



In a home studio in one of the remotest places on the planet, Jeremy Conlon is busy bringing to life his latest incarnation of Cooperblack.

Synths, drum machines, distant voices, new wave melancholic electro pop songs, found sounds from random harsh European winters add to this latest release, deep and dark, where the sun has limited potential, sculpted in the hash sun of Australia's desert.
