Klemm Bell Reunion Day

Terry Klemm and Reg Bell were two of the biggest names in Victorian board-making throughout the ’60s and ’70s and together ran one of Australia’s most respected, innovative labels, namely Klemm-Bell Surfboards.

And now an overdue reunion of surfers, workers, fans and Terry and Reg themselves is on the way – and already over 100 Klemm-Bell boards are registered along with many of the KB shapers, glassers and teamriders throughout the years.

Many attendees haven’t seen each other for 25-30 years so it should be one amazing day – even got Murray Walding’s band the Southside Hodads playing.

Everybody is welcome – Sunday January 8, 10am to 4pm, 40-58 Melbourne Rd. Williamstown Vicco

French electronic music producer Jean-Jacques Perrey died Friday at age 87 following a bout with lung cancer, Rolling Stone has confirmed. Perrey was hailed for his work with early electronic keyboards, particularly Moog synthesizers, pioneering a lighthearted, space-age sound that continues to resonate in contemporary electronic pop. He also acquired notable admirers in hip-hop, particularly for his song “E.V.A.,” which has been sampled by artists including A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, and, later, Pusha T. Perrey released his first albums with collaborator Gershon Kingsley in the 1960s. (The Beastie Boys would later borrow the title of the duo’s 1966 debut, The In Sound From Way Out!, for a 1996 instrumental compilation.) Perrey and Kingsley’s best-known song, “Baroque Hoedown,” long served as soundtrack to the Main Street Electrical Parade at Disney theme parks. Perrey went on to release two dozen more albums, many of which—Moog Indigo, Moog Generation, Moog Mig Mag Moog, Moog
