Party Dozen

4th September 2022 - 4th September 2022

Party Dozen are a duo from Sydney made up of Kirsty Tickle (saxophone) and Jonathan Boulet (percussion and sampler). Since forming in 2017, they have become renowned in Australia for their incendiary live shows, touring and playing with acts such as LIARS, Tropical Fuck Storm and Viagra Boys. Exactly what Party Dozen are is completely up to the listener. Doom. Jazz. Hardcore. Psychedelic. No-wave. Industrial. Although largely instrumental, their sets are punctuated by Kirsty’s unique “singing” style, screaming into the bell of her saxophone which itself goes through a bevy of effects pedals. Intensely independent in everything they do, the duo write, perform and record everything themselves. 2022 will see the return of Party Dozen, first in April with the 7” release, Fat Hans Gone Mad, for the Sub Pop Singles Club, and then in July with their third album, the first with a new label partner in New York’s Temporary Residence Ltd. In anticipation of the forthcoming album, Temporary Residence will reissue the group's first two albums, The Living Man and Pray For Party Dozen for the world outside Australia and New Zealand.. “An absolute noise-rock scorcher. – Clash Magazine “I am loving Party Dozen. Wow. It’s intense, very intense, but it’s very good.” – Tom Ravenscroft, BBC 6 Music “Dense, crushing, and utterly mesmerizing, Party Dozen’s debut album The Living Man is unlike anything you’ve heard before; a playfully savage sonic onslaught that throws the genre rule-book out the window and goes straight for the jugular." – Fbi, ALBUM OF THE WEEK
