I Think I Was At Sammy’s

…to see my good friend Dee’s musical collective, Tiny Pieces Of Eight, perform…IMG_1252 IMG_1253 IMG_1254 IMG_1256 IMG_1257 IMG_1259

…and perform they did…from free noise to country to funk to wall-of-sound-folk-a-delica…

…they sound awesome, go see ’em…

…then I went thru this door here…

…and found way too much beer…

…of course Mr H. was the only thing in focus after awhile…

…sometimes, no matter how messed up you get, you push the button and it works…

…and sometimes…

…thank you for another wonderfully boozy night, LoR…

…my head hurts.

Tiny Pieces Of 8

…if you didn’t make it out to Chicks Hotel on Sunday to experience the official release of my good friend Deirdre Newall’s CD,Tiny Pieces Of 8, you probably won’t be able to fathom what a stunning performance you missed…

…not even by purchasing the CD (orders being taken in-store at Too Tone Records) and looking at these photos  whilst playing it, will you be able to re-capture the ambiance (om-bee-onse)…

….even Chris & Swampy were worshipping at her feet….

…just when you thought it was safe…IMG_1320

…Mr Heazlewood, through his obsessive use of Farcebook, has been single handedly responsible for more than his fair share of traffic on this sight… for that we thank him…on a recent visit to the shop, he was more than happy to show off his new guitar and associated gurning skills….

IMG_1321

…Mr Robert Scott, local folk musician and artist of international renown(the landscape in the background is one of his) played us some hot licks on the button accordion (audio not available)…. (thank god)….

…I’m assuming he wont “forget” his guitar for the next Too Tone photo shoot….

… the ever elusive (and very sensible) Mr David Kilgour politely declined to take part in the proceedings.

…(and the real reason for the photos??…rushed out the door with a nagging “there’s-something-else-I-need-to-do” kinda feeling….yup….didn’t scan more ‘toons)….

…normal transmission resumed next Tuesday.

 

…more of the same…but different….

Found And Lost

…you’ll all be relieved to know that my good friend Jungle Fari turned up safe and well on Thursday… he’d been playing some gig up Karamea way and hadn’t thought to keep me fully informed….

…and any one knowing the whereabouts of Mr. Heazlewood please get him to call in to our menswear department and take the load off our harried staff who, even as we speak, are being run ragged with inquiries as to the well being of his underpants….IMG_0830

 

…I know it’s uncool to post pictures of screen shots but, hey, how often do your search engine terms read like this?

Nz Musicians In Wigs

…supposedly these guys are relatively world renowned… and have had long careers in the music industry… IMG_0721

… you ‘d think they’d know better than to let me convince them to don red wigs and take their photo…

…. if members of the Heazlewood or Gutteridge fan clubs  would like to come and collect them ….

…while they are good at providing in store entertainment they do take a bit of feeding and we may be forced to sell them to defray costs…

 

…and if you enjoyed that….try this…
