Brisbane art-rock veteran Regurgitator may not be the first act to come to mind when picking teams for a Velvet Underground and Nico tribute. But the group has never met a musical genre it couldn’t lovingly poke a few holes in, or a tongue-in-cheek performance-art stunt it wouldn’t try.
Originally conceived to close the National Gallery of Victoria’s Andy Warhol-Ai Weiwei exhibition in 2016, the show returns for an intimate Melbourne Recital Centre performance – with Regurgitator members Quan, Ben and Peter joined by Seja Vogel on keys and Mindy Meng Wang on the Chinese guzheng.
Regurgitator navigates its way through the Warhol-produced 1967 album, The Velvet Underground & Nico, which they have successfully performed at the Sydney, Brisbane Festival and MONA FOMA in addition to the NGV premiere.
