8:30 Spotlight

King Loser, 2016 Comeback Special. King Loser's mesmerising mix of snappy surf guitar, sloppy drones, reckless rock'n'roll and croony covers stood them apart from their local contemporaries in the early mid-'90s. The nucleus of the group - multi-instrumentalist Celia Patel (a.k.a. Mancini, aka Pavlova) and guitarist Chris Heazlewood - had five prolific years making music together, but volatile chemistry and self-destructive tendencies took their toll. Now King Loser are about to tread the boards again. How will their reunion play out?
