Range Brewing Back to Reality DDH Pale Ale x Regurgitator - Unit
I GOT KILLED BY RANGE BREWING ON MY VIDEO GAME
The next pick is a huge change in sound from the previous release, and is the brilliant mix of synth pop, alternative rock and hip hop that became their second album “Unit”
The band was not sure how the fans would react after the guitar heaviness of their debut release “Tu Plang”. Ben Ely told @triple_j in 1997 “I had a lot of fear thinking that everyone was going to hate our new electro pop, and we played it and all these guys with long hair and muscles and no shirt on, they liked it, and I just thought that was awesome”.
The album was well loved at the time for it’s quirky nature, excellent song writing and really stood out against all the guitar rock being produced at the time. Regurgitator were experimenting with drum machines and synthesizers before the “Unit” was recorded. The band were using the Clavia Nord Lead, the Akai S3000XL, the Farfisa Super Bravo Organ and the newly released Roland MC-303 "Groovebox, which featured on a number of tracks including "Unit" and "Polyester Girl".
Now for the beer, and Range Brewing have delivered a power packed little number for this album. The DDH Pale Ale “Back to Reality” brewed with Vic Secret, Citra Cryo and Mosaic create a hazy crusher that flows along nicely with these tunes. There are excellent flavours of pineapple, passionfruit, pink grapefruit and blueberry in this tasty little number. Both the album and the beer make for a tasty little pair.
