MMusic Spike F*ck: The making of ‘Smackwave’
Sat 7 Jan 2017, 7.30pm–10.00pm
After the untimely and tumultuous dissolution of her former band, a nervous breakdown and a subsequent three year hiatus, Spike F*ck has risen from the ashes with her EP titled Smackwave. Produced by Elliot Munn, Smackwave is a raw and brutally honest exploration of loss, loneliness, transness and addiction. One that also relishes the lighter sides of life (love, of course) and is all-the-while told with her tongue firmly-in-cheek to remind listeners (and herself) not to take life too seriously. On this night—one of three Spike performances—Ms F*ck will perform with a never-before-seen look at the making of Smackwave, as well as telling the stories that contributed to both the record and the woman she is today.
This solo show is one of three Spike F*ck performances across MPavilion’s 2016/17 season. You are invited to witness Spike F*ck perform Smackwave with the aid of her backing band, The Spike F*ck Band (and supports), on Friday 25 November, 2016 and Friday 10 February, 2017.
Artist riders at MPavilion are generously supported by the lovely crew at Sample Brew.
