U.R.G - The Man From Atlantis - Secret Birds


  • Thu 7 Dec 2023, 8:00pm–11:00pm



Listed by


What is “improvisation” if not the sacrament of communion with one’s own (and two’s and three’s own) unwritten work? The People’s U.R.G. is teacher and student and blackboard, Christ and disciple and bread, Shakespeare and Stephen and soap, lone key and synthesiser and rehearsal room. And more. Bluetooth speaker L Boom. Turn it all the way up like a column heater in the kind of weather you only get in a city you moved to for reasons that have never made sense but that you’re stuck with so you try to make the best of by meeting up with various companions scattered across its boring infantile flat surface “improvising” with each one of them capturing the always different always the same audio on iPhone voice memo.

The man from Atlantis is the moniker for Melbourne musician and Ramble Records owner Mike Sill. Mike started 90s experimental noise, prog-rock, art-punk outfit Ray of Creation in the early 90s and went on to form krautrock duo Imperial Leatherman in 2000. the Man from Atlantis and its various iterations is an extension of ideas formed in his previous bands and sonically traverses somewhere between American Primitive finger-style guitar and raga, blues, no wave, outsider/acid folk/psych.

In 2023 TMFA released the LP’s Golden Light and Blues for Archie Shepp (included in ‘The Third Eye’s best Psychedelic Rock Albums of July 2023’).
