    The Others Way Festival 2016 

    Great night out. 43 bands in 6 hours. I made it to 9. All good, not a dud amongst the bands that I saw.

    The downtown venues were not too far apart, the weather was mild and the beer cold. Reminded me of SXSW.

    I posted some vids on the Facebook from my phone. I also shot a couple of videos.

    I had the most fun with the Aussie band, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding. I don’t usually make it to midnight on a Friday but very pleased I persevered.

    Here’s two clips, first a great cover (I was expecting Benny & the Jets off a recent EP…), then a new track off their latest album.

    Scott & Charlene’s Wedding Live it up (originally Mental as Anything)

    Lots of love going out to the Twerps watching at the front of the audience.

    PS, for those confused by the name, watch this (warning – terrible 80’s soundtrack and mullets).

    Scott & Charlene – Neighbours Wedding

    They also played this track

    David Kilgour & The Heavy Eights

    David works really hard to make his music sound effortless.

    Amelia Murray seamlessly makes the move from bedroom pop to the stage. Sweet slacker pop. She was so excited to be on stage. I have included the vid I watched before the gig, and her latest tune to listen to / buy.  Amelia was interviewed here by some American NZ music aficionados who lust after Chris Knox.

    Little Uneasy – Fazerdaze



    Love their dark, bassy sound.

    HEX playing Neck of the Woods, Auckland on 2 September 2016

    Salad Boys

    Christchurch’s finest.

    Salad Boys – Whammy Bar, Auckland – 2 September 2016

    Girls Pissing …

    Last set of the night for yours truly. Quite a moving piece. Buy the music here.

    Nuggets 226a – Thrashy 

    Nuggets 226a - thrashy



    Live thrash is good. Until someone thrashy comes to town worth hearing  (T54 ?) this mix will have to do.

    The Thermal’s new album continues their old testament crime and punishment theme.  Katie Crutchfield from P.S Eliott shows why screaming in tune is so rewarding, and F***ed Up show us just how much breath you need to sing in a hard core punk band (though eclipsed by Jon Chang of Hayaino Daisuki who has an extraordinary ability to keep the screaming going).

    I am really enjoying the Milk Music album (at long last), the latest from The Thermals and GRMLN.

    Videos below, including, if I can get my act together, my lame effort from SXSW 2012 showing me heading into the Twilight Sad after eating too many burritos, crashing The Guards and catching a ride on a pedicab (a bike taxi) to see Built to Spill. Crank up the quality and enjoy it in hi-res.

    PS, I applaud the photographer who persevered and filmed the F***ed Up clip below amid total chaos, bravo. This band I must see live.
