Huge thanks to Roger Graumeijer, of RoxPx.com, for collecting great images and the following moving pictures from our recent swift South Island tour.
For the first time in a long time we get to return to the south Island for a few shows.
The HELLo Show is our new work in progress, a developing idea of new songs and presentation, a push back against frantic apocalyptic fantasies without denying the mounting data of impending difficulty thats ahead of us. And a bit more raucous fun.
- Christchurch : Thursday June 7: At the Darkroom with local acts Carradine Choke and The Ruling Elite
- Dunedin : Friday June 8: At the Dunedin Musicians Club with Infinite Justice and Bad Bandmate
- Invercargill : Saturday June 9: At the Southland Musicians Club with Murgatroyd, Otepuni Moonshine and Seafog [from Dunedin].
The Ruling Elite
The poster has been designed specifically for this tour by the wonderful artist Stefanus Endry Pragusta from Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia. Many thanks for the international collaboration! This is his statement on the work titled “TODAY”:
An amazing show to be playing at this weekend coming – the incredible Onslaught festival held annually in Dunedin. And this years line-ups is a genuine pearler!!!
Organised by Mark from Bazooka this event is in its’ 11th year. It’ll be a full day of a vast array of bands from the south, but happily a little of the North gets in there as well. We think it’s extra brilliant that a couple of bands are from Levin! (Some say the Gore of the North). Levin, is after all, the home of the A.E.B, a mighty fine community venue and one of our particular favourite digs to play. it is also the home of the legendary NZ Punk band No Idea!
It’s possibly been almost 30 years since No Idea last played Dunedin, so this one is gonna be one for the books!
Here is the line-up:
AFTERNOON SHOW: Doors Open 1.30
2.35-3.10 Infinite Justice
3.10-3.55 Suicide Bombers
3.55-4.40 Mince On Toast

10.30-11.15 No Idea
11.15-12.00 Pavement Saw

“Glue Gallery and the Dunedin Fringe Festival gladly welcome the Wellington based, Outsider Punk Duo ‘MR STERILE ASSEMBLY’ to Dunedin for a dynamic presentation of Music, Art, Performance and Stories.

We’re at it again. In a couple of weeks, we’ll wrap out bits and pieces in cardboard and send them by plane to that Southern city Dunedin for the 2012 Fringe. The art will hang for the week leading up to the performance’s on the 23rd & 24th.
