Kid Koala sunders depths of hell with insane scratches to summon Mike Patton and Jon Spencer for service on new Slew record

Unparalleled turntablist and eternal child (see pic above), Kid Koala is much more than just a man with four turntables and no microphone. He is also a remorseless rock ‘n’ roller with The Slew, his collaboration with fellow wax scratcher Dynomite D and a couple of Wolfmother expats. More Grand Funk Railroad than Funky 4+1, The Slew slayed eardrums back in 2009 with 100%, combining heavy riffage with scratches and samples galore. For their yet-to-be-titled-or-slated-for-release follow-up LP, The Slew are ditching the sampled vox and turning towards the meaty, screech-filled throats of scream demons like Faith No More’s/Tomahawk’s/everything else’s Mike Patton and John Spencer of his own Blues Explosion to flesh out the rawk. So lock up your doors and cover your daughters’ ears, cause there’s noises a-comin’ from thems that usually hip-hops!
