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!
