“Cured Pink is a discomposed mess of underdeveloped ideas, glorifying civil sickness before finding anything that actually sounds good. Self-releasing hand-made material out of Brisbane for the last few years, the mess, usually summed as ''psychotic performance art'', ''post-industrial noise bliss'' or ''bored at 3am'', appears to have its strengths in the alienation of pub owners, the forcing of early closures and alienation of most band members. Maybe it is just irritating”.
Sabbatical presents the first release by this constantly evolving Brisbane based project overseen by Andrew McLellan. To launch this self-titled limited run cassette release Sabbatical provides three opportunities for Melbourne residents to witness Cured Pink live.
