Exclusive: Kid Koala Unveils The Slew

Exclusive XLR8R news comin' atcha! A couple years ago, turntablist extraordinaire Kid Koala (a.k.a. Eric San) and his friend Dynomite D (a.k.a. Dylan Frombach) were assigned the task of soundtracking a documentary. Said film never saw the light of day, but its music—at the urging, and with the assistance, of Wolfmother's old rhythm section—is about to. Ex-Wolf-members Chris Ross and Myles Heskett are now set to join Koala on tour as they present The Slew, and they'll unveil their very special set-up in the cities below. Working with live drums, bass, keys, and six turntables, the group is going to deliver 70-minute sets of raw guitar and some of the dopest manipulated beats you've heard all year. (In fact, you can check out one of the fine samplings from this tour here.) This is a one-off tour, so consider yourself warned—if you miss this one, well, you're S.O.L.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Kid Koala, Chris and Myles on different occasions in different circumstances. There was one constant though - all three are the nicest guys you could ever meet. I'm so glad Chris and Myles got out of Wolfmother. They may have thrown away fame, but they saved their soul(s). Gonna be a killer tour.
