RISKE ZERO Perth reunion

Riske Zero
When was the last time you saw a post punk band from Reunion Island? After previously playing the Rock A La Buse Festival in Reunion Island with Riske Zero, local outfit Rag n’ Bone have helped book some epic Perth shows the next two weekends.

With some killer line ups and events over the next 10 days there’s no excuse not to get along. Tonight, Friday October 20 they play Badlands for the Maudit Tangue #4 Compilation Launch with Rag n’ Bone, Shit Narnia, Thee Loose Hounds, Tanaya Harper and Bells Rapids DJ’s. Saturday October 21 it’s Market Square Park, Subiaco for the Bonjour Perth Festival; Tuesday, October 24 it’s Mojo’s Bar, Fremantle; Friday, October 27 it’s the The Odd Fellow, Fremantle with Last Quokka and Teen Angst; and Saturday, October 28 they finish on a huge bill at The Bird, Northbridge with Aborted Tortoise, She Leaves The Mountain and Last/Tuneless.

Riske Zero play no-surrender, intuitive rock, picking influences from various fields like the post punk of Joy Division and the noise rock of Girls Against Boys. Hailing from Reunion Island, a French region in the midst of the Indian Ocean, the three piece offer a dynamic live experience moving from high energy punk numbers to artful folk ballads carved out of William Blake poetry.

Riske Zero will be promoting their 2016 release No Country For Poor Men, as well as the compilation Maudit Tangue #4 Indian Ocean Rock (2017). The unique compilation features bands from Réunion, Mauritius, Madagascar, South Africa, India and Western Australia (including Rag n’ Bone, Bells Rapids, Shit Narnia, Hideous Sun Demon, Thee Loose Hounds and more) and will be released across three countries with a launch party event at Perth’s own Badlands Bar.

Réunion label Maudit Tangue not only promotes local bands but also fosters an underground rock network between the shores of Indian Ocean countries. This includes a series of festivals on the island and tours to neighbouring countries in the network.
