TWO MINUTES WITH: LAST DAYS OF KALI

last-days-of-kali

Last Days Of Kali can transport you to another world. And even though these doom-infused post-rock folk from Adelaide have been around for a few years now, releasing their self-titled debut back in 2013, they are slowly working towards the follow-up—pegged for release in the New Year.

Supporting Tortoise this Friday, December 9, at Fowlers Live with Sparkspitter, we chatted to Liam Schulz (synth) as part of our Two Minutes With series.

Describe your music in five words or less?

Introspective submersions into the ether.

What’s going on in the world of Last Days Of Kali?

Sorting out our album at a glacial pace. Being adults keeps getting in the way.

What motivates you to make music?

(Pauses whilst holding a glass of wine)………….Satan………(drinks wine).

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?

Brian Cook giving us Russian Circles’ bottle of Jager is the clear high. Luke breaking his massive ride cymbal is the low.

What music are you listening to at the moment?

Numenorean, Bell Witch, GY!BE, Battles, Sub Rosa, Chelsea Wolfe.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first? And why?

Luke thinks he’d taste the best, but I’m (Liam) more of a gentleman and would insist on dying first.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?

People driving 50kph on Stephen Terrace when it’s clearly marked as a 60 zone.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.

I saw Love Like Electrocution and Hi End Audio play in the Exeter beer garden about 10 years ago. I’d redo that.
