"Tonight at the Front Ducks Fly"

For the uninitiated, Anarchist Duck are a ridiculous mix of funk, reggae, rock and rhymes and dance moves you almost forgot about. For anyone familiar with their work, well, you don’t even need to read this, just check the date and make sure you get there on time. Head to www.myspace.com/anarchistduck for a listen and get there early as it’s likely to fill out pretty quickly - BMA

Bio

Formed in August 2004, Anarchist Duck sprung from a hole sawed in their jam room wall to create a quirky blend of hard funk-rock grooves with reggae, hip-hop, ska and Latin flavourings. Their sound is the lovechild of a “meeting between Blue King Brown, The Cat Empire and Sublime” and their live show is an energetic cacophony of groove guaranteed to make ya move. The Ducks pepper their sets with Carnival-esque percussion breakdowns, catchy raps and occasional twisted covers.
In August 2010, the Duck received a RADF grant for their Canberra/Perisher/NSW tour and were chosen by GCMIA to attend the Bigsound Conference in Brisbane. They have been rated in the top 10 albums at 4ZZZ and have been supported by the Gold Coast City Council as part of the A-Venue program for two years running (2010/11).
Anarchist Duck will play the ADELAIDE FRINGE FESTIVAL and Nimbin Mardi Grass in 2011 and have played at Island Vibe Reggae Fest, Perisher Spring Carnival, the Brisbane International Film Festival, Corinbank Festival, Southern Oracle, Surfers Paradise Festival, Wonderland Festival and 4ZZZ punkfest, and venues such as The Zoo, Rics and Lock ‘n’Load (Brisbane), The Shark Bar (Gold Coast), The Railway Hotel (Byron Bay), Nimbin Hotel, Winsome Hotel (Lismore), Swingin Safari, The Loft, The Espy (Melbourne), First Floor (Melbourne), Front Gallery (Canberra), The Phoenix Bar (Canb), Barrells (Sawtell), Hermans Bar (Sydney Uni), The Annandale (Syd) and the Chophouse. They have played alongside the Winnie Coopers, Hermitude, The Bumblebeez, Marshall and the Fro, Sister She, Grass Roots Street Orchestra, Black Market Rhythm Co, Chocolate Strings, CC the Cat, Bertha Control, Indigenous Intrudaz, Hussy Hicks, Roger That, and The Black Market. They have received radio airplay from Brisbane to Melbourne.
