Three FBi radio shows, New Weird Australia, Unputdownable & Sunday Night At The Movies, came together to present ‘Unpopular Music’ – a benefit to support their station. They pooled their collective networks and gathered twelve of Sydney’sinnovative, experimental artists – all of whom are donated their time, with all proceeds going directly to FBi, helping to ensure the ongoing survival of Sydney’s home of new music.

The line-up was headed by Pimmon & Jeff Burch – playing both solo sets and a joint live performance, launching their new collaborative project, Mandala Trap. Pimmon has forged an international reputation for creating dense, challenging and engaging electronic music – and, under his given name of Paul Gough, also presents a show on FBi titled Paulʼs Play Lunch. Jeff Burch runs The Spring Press label, was formerly one quarter of Sydney band Songs and launched his solo record in 2009 on Perthʼs Farmer Frontier label.

The all-Sydney bill also included:

• Kyu an experimental pop outfit who delivered an amazing performance at the New Weird Australia showcase at Sound Summit

• Anon aka noise artist, musician and label manager Anna Vo

• Scissor Lock, an experimental project from musician Marcus Whale

• Anna Chase, a multi instrumentalist and vocalist who weaves melodies into familiar yet dreamy pop constructions.

• sound artist, musician and chronic circuit bender Nick Wishart – long-standing member of Toydeath

• plus DJ Sets from Kevin Purdy (Tooth), Tim Ritchie (Sound Quality, ABC Radio National) and Tom Smith (Cleptoclectics).
