…he recorded quite a bit of the gig and took loads of photos….

…anyways….

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…

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

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.
