Captain Keen's Joy Machine

Post by Keening_Product » Thu Feb 11, 2016 8:26

I just found this band when googling "Captain Keen". An interesting and enjoyable mix of sounds. Ikey, the only song they have an MP3 of on Triple J, starts out like a Downtempo Midnight Oil release and sometimes sounds like it samples Radiohead's Kid A or Amnesiac. https://www.triplejunearthed.com/artist ... oy-machine

From the band's Facebook page.
Captain Keen's Joy Machine is an experimental rock band that plays with custom designed electronic instruments and stuff.
I also like how one member's role in the band is "lead joystick."

So, there is/was a confirmed Keen reference band in Adelaide (Keen Must Die - https://www.triplejunearthed.com/artist/keen-must-die), one which may just be a loose coincidence in Sydney... anyone want to start one in Melbourne?

Holy cow! Awesome find.
Also, this is just further proof that Australia as a whole is a closet Keen nation.

If they had any available I might, but it's not the kind of music I listen to anyway. Still, it's good that there is still an active indie music industry here.

Fourplay Electric Eclectic String Quartet FTW!!!!!
