Onslaught

11182658_973201626032262_554036111875116669_oAn 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
2.00-2.35 Slitzkrieg
2.35-3.10 Infinite Justice
3.10-3.55 Suicide Bombers

EVENING SHOW: Supper served at 5.00
5.30-6.00 Whiskey And The Wench

April’s mini-tourette

April 3 2015Been a while since commenting here, this is the first for the year, and it’s already a quarter through.

Firstly, this easter weekend we having our first shows for the year on this mini-tourette of Whanganui/Palmerston North and Levin.It would be lovely to see you all, it’s been a while and will be nice to be out and about once again.

April:
Friday 3 – Whanganui – Space Monster with Vorn and Gold MedalFamous
Saturday 4 -Palmerston North – Great Job with Felix and Jack and P90s
Sunday afternoon 5 – Levin – Alternative Entertainment Bureau – 10 bands/10 bucks! – with Black Chrome, The G/Nomes, Valerie and one of my personal all-time-favorites NZ punk bands No Idea!

Next though, is work is progressing nicely on what will be our next album – with the working title of either Persona Ficta, or It’s All Over, yet to be fully decided. We’re finishing off the demos and honing some of the ideas, and stripping back others. We’re certainly leaning towards lean. It’s the thinking about it that often takes the longest and then ‘blink’ it’s all over.
