…so that the street walking….IMG_8358

…and the pole dancing…IMG_8372

…and the “chest as a billboard”….IMG_8359

…can stop.

 

…(go to band camp or google the hell out of “Left or Right” & “Iron Mammoth”)

…(see you all at Featstock).

In Absentia

…after taking my cold/man flu out to that gig at the Crown on Thurs’ night I had nothing left in the tank to take part in this….IMG_6402

 

…sorry guys, I know you were relying on my photo journalistic “skills” for promoting the album…

..in lieu of turning up I thought I’d share this pic’ of Callum thinking about what to write down as he listens to the rough mix instore @ Too Tone…IMG_5936

…and this pic’ of Callum writing the stuff he thought of down instore @ Too Tone…

IMG_5937

…and this pic’ of Seedy thinking about how many pages of stuff Callum is going to write down whilst he is instore across the road at the New World Supermarket….

Far From What The Title Suggests

…”Temporary” will be a benchmark in Dunedin music for a loooong time…

…I’ve been waiting for this release, trying not to fidget and go “is it here yet”, since I heard the test press in store, aaaages ago…

…it’s fucking brilliant…

…a perfect snapshot of the woozy, jangly, alt-pop that has been coming out of a very talented group of Dn musicians for the past couplathree  years…

…wonderfully informed by, but not at all similar to, all those crusty old farts from 25 yrs or so ago…

…and lovingly put together by Mr. Henderson at Fishrider records…

http://www.fishriderrecords.com

…if you can’t come to Too Tone to buy one, go forth and bother your local record shop or seek a digital copy (thru legal channels of course!!)…

…this is the shit.

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

IMG_1260

…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…

IMG_1262

 

…and found way too much beer…

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

IMG_1266

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

IMG_1269 IMG_1289 IMG_1301

…and sometimes…

…not so much…

…thank you for another wonderfully boozy night, LoR…

…my head hurts.
