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.


Out of the city!

And this image is for a show this Saturday in Palmerston North at Great Job.

There seems to be a flourish of independent D.I.Y-styled venues popping up in the provincial towns – excellent.

 


Plans for 2011.

Ok, the best news is that at this very moment the mr sterile Assembly album TRANSIT is in the most capable and helpful hands of Dualplover. We expect the deliver of the album by the end of Feb and then we shall start sharing our efforts far and wide. The first single has been release for free download on our Bandcamp page, the feed back’s been lovely, ta.

The first show for this year is in Christchurch at the fine venue of El Santo Porteno with a rare performance of Street and one of the infamous Dave Khan’s bands (i’ll post the band name when I have it). Further afield we also have shows in planning for Palmerston Nth, Whanganui, some Australian shows, and mid year a return to south east Asia.
