default NAM: The Rockfathers of Melbourne Shuffle

Post by Garry on Sun 16 Jan 2011, 12:18





To launch our new special events section MSO Arena is proud to present a special Global Shuffle preview, of NAM, the undisputed Rockfathers of Melbourne Shuffle

EVENT TIME: 22 January 2011. High Noon. (All times: Melbourne GMT+10 )
ENCORE SCREENING: Opening Act FUN BATTLE #1 High Noon. St Valentines Day 14 February 2011
EVENT DURATION: 14 days only

FUN BATTLE BEGINS High Noon. 15 February 2011


PRICE: ALL FREE


NAM started around 1993 and performed live at the launch of TOE-Theory Of Everything (1994-98) my Melbourne underground TV show. Combining metal, shuffling and rap, NAM will change your idea of shuffling forever. NAM toured all over Australia to packed fully pumped venues for years.

NAM//BC started dance at age 9, won 2 Australian dance titles, trained in classical ballet for 7 years and will teach new shufflers what it means to 'Rock' in shuffle terms.

This clip was shot live (1994) at the Espy Hotel in Melbourne which is a rock venue institution going back to the 1970's - the building goes back to the 1800's. All the audio is recorded live using just the camera mic, in mono onto SVHS video tape using my Panasonic MS1 - a late 1980's entry level broadcast standard 8bit video camera. One of the most robust camera's I've used (includes rolling down McKenzie Falls and still worked ) and able to shoot down to about 2-3 lux, an impressive achievement at the time. Film just looked black with blobs,

This atmosphere was what 'pub rock' (as we call it in Melbourne) is all about. RAW ENERGY LIVE. This was the environment that I learnt how to play live in the 1970's touring around Australia. I spent much of my teens playing professionally in exactly this sort of environment, which is one of the reasons I shot it, because at the time the Espy was only one of a handfull of pubs left playing real rock (not corporate rock) in Australia, in an authentic pub rock venue.

When you face 800 tanked up punters in a rock venue, you have to perform successfully immediately, or else you get well and truely booed off stage before your second number is finished... You learn quick.

Unfortunatly the Espy got yuppyfied and they don't do this stuff anymore, and the famous band room walls have been painted over. But it's still a nice place Smile http://www.espy.com.au/

You have never seen any shuffling like this unless you were there at the time. Hope you enjoy it.




SPOILER ALERT

This video contains footage from the documentary feature Global Shuffle and comments about the video are permitted in this thread.

Because if you're like the day before 21, if you wait until midday 22 there'll only be a few hours left Melbourne time for you to see it. And if I'm confused trying to figure it out there's bound to be a few others just as confused with the 'this is tomorrow calling' thing as well.

So maybe it should be 48 hours like our original TVU broadcasts back in 1992, plenty of time to catch it.

Okay we're on the air (testing at 10.30am Saturday 22 Jan 2011 Melbourne time) There's lo-res through to HD.

It's okay to discuss the clip once you've seen it and ask questions which I'll try to answer for you.

Hope you enjoy it

We might do an encore screening to commence the new fun battle, like leading up to the start, the opening act sort of thing, so everybody gets a boost with a bunch of new moves as they start their vid.

I'll work out the dates in the next few days.
