Lockdown 26

…the last of the completed +oneware that I haven’t shown you yet….

…was kinda saving this one in the vain hope that I’d be able to reveal it to the friend I made it for before sticking on the blog….

…mate Steve is an incurable cricket fan….part of that group of ratbags commonly referred to as The Beige Brigade…and perpetrator of one of the finest crowd catches I’ve had the pleasure to watch on the TV news and now can’t find on the bloody intraweb….

…(hey, Seedy!…send me the link)….

…halfway thru the last cricket world cup (that young Steve spent all his savings and accrued leave on)…(only to come away with memories of New Zealand’s fourth placing)….I started to make this….

…kind of a talisman to point at members of the opposing team in the vain hope that they’ll screw up….

…thinking that it would be a nice house warming gift for him when he got home “with” the trophy….

….note that the beige line work that is next to the darker tan line work is not showing up in these photo’s…shoulda picked a darker beige….(what?)……(also note tricky “round-the-edge” signature….half eaten fruity snack for scale)…

…if only I’d thought of making it before Steve left…the cup could have been ours!….

Support Dunedin Musicians Today

…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….

IMG_6090

 

…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

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…

 

 

IMG_1304

 

…not so much…

…thank you for another wonderfully boozy night, LoR…

…my head hurts.

Feastock 2014 Ate My Homework

…after selling all the tickets of Feastock 2014…IMG_0525

 

…I attended…IMG_0856

 

…Seedy had chewed his nails so far down that he had to switch to pineapple lumps…
IMG_0843

 

..Crispy appeared to be filming blind…IMG_0840

 

…and Callum was behind the stacks practicing his “thank-yous” announcement…IMG_0841

 

…well practiced he was, thanking Too Tone 3 times in the course of his speech….(did I make too much fuss about being left out last year?)….

…to shorten the toilet queues, security were directing the lads to this oasis of alternative utrination…

 

IMG_0854

 

…mmmm….sulubrious….

…you guys might want to not encourage that next year…the puddle was getting hard to negotiate (with) by the end of the event…

 

IMG_0857

 

 

…and don’t tell any one how shitfaced, Dee and AJ were….

 

IMG_0867

 

…as per-ususal my Feastock ends in a hazy red blur for another year.

IMG_0839

…the authorities have all the photographic evidence, they know who you are.

 

…(it is taking ages too get over the excesses of saturday..normal transmission may never be resumed).

Last Minute Wedding Gits

…was accosted last week by these be-suited ragamuffins…

…off to a wedding they were…or a was it a bank heist?…

IMG_2619

 

…anyway… that wasn’t enough of an excuse to excuse them from “Dunedin-muscians-in-red-wigs” duty…

…last seen heading up the North East Valley in vintage buses…

…possibly off to Bethunes Gully for an outdoor ceremony…

…it pissed down 29 minutes later.
