Deedrees Rekkid

…celebrated the release of Dee’s new album, “She Shanties For Frank”, a week back…

…wicked gig in a great room (let’s do that again)…didn’t get many (if any) good picks from the back (and under the influence)….but maybe if you know this guy…

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

…anyways….

….bring the noise.

…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….

…and this picture of a starfish because Met’ lives in Invercargill and that is too far to go for a pic’ of him thinking and/or writing stuff down….IMG_6381

…(if you’re not from here, or are but live under a rock, Rod Stewart has a gig tonight…but won’t be at Feastock….

The Emperors New Hat

…Pete went to a charity tea-cosy auction the other day & came away with this stylee new “hat”…

IMG_1070

…it’s a beehive!….

…and has a bee on the top…

IMG_1073

 

…now you can identify Pete at a distance…

..which will give you ample time to come up with a witty complement for his new chapeau.

 

…(I already used the one where you point out that it’s interesting to see what’s under the Beehive – New Zealand’s parliament building).

All Cleaned Up

…went to Chicks Hotel on Saturday…IMG_3710

 

 

 

…blagged a freebie for me and my good friend Dee…so stood at the back to let the paying punters get the good views…that and the beer are wholly responsible for the quality of these pic’s…IMG_3706 IMG_3715…Bill Direen was awesome…haven’t seen him play for years…love the back-porch presentation of old favourites….very warm, welcoming & homey…Hamish Kilgour on Drums was a treat but almost obscured from view….

….big ups to Kane Strang for his set…beautiful voice, nice guitar and great stories in his songs….

…thought I’d get a better view watching thru someone else’s phone…(once watched a football match on TV thru binoculars, for a “live” feel….quantities of booze were involved with that as well)…IMG_3737

 

…thankfully David Kilgour is tall enough to be seen from the back of Chicks without the aid of social networks…(although they do obscure the top of his head)….IMG_3740

 

…Robert Scott is another matter…standing on one leg and leaning to the left I managed to click his hat & nose…
IMG_3726
…Matin Phillips jumped in to perform keyboard duties on “Tally-Ho”…IMG_3729

 

…and Pete Gutteridge glowed in the dark for several tunes…IMG_3739

 

…I’m glad I could almost see Hamish when he played with Bill, couldn’t even see the the tips of his sticks during the Clean…IMG_3718

…my good friend Dee played with the buttons whilst Stephen & /or Tex were looking the other way….

…thank you to The Clean for letting me in for free & playing an inspiring set…thank you to Bill & Kane for great sets as well….thank you Tex & Stephen for the perfect sound…first time for ages a live gig hasn’t made my tinitus a prob’ for days afterwards…and thank you Chicks Hotel for continuing to be a damn fine venue…

…and an especial shout out to my good friend Dee who drove there & back …thus enabling me to get rather drunk!
