Schminkie


Most Fat Wreck bands do nought for me but Fat Mike signed a far better band than NOFX(although that's hardly a difficult chore) in Uk punk band Snuff. The Fat Wreck site calls Snuff the best British punk band ever but while they're good, there are plenty past British bands like The Toy Dolls who could easily contest that tag.

Over 'ere, guv'ner.

Delaney Davidson

Since my last post was about an act I missed on Saturday night. This one is about an act I missed on Sunday night due to visiting friends and relatives. Delaney Davidson played ten minutes from where I live and I was unable to attend. The guy, who like the Transistors is also originally from Christchurch and is signed to Swiss label Voodoo Rythm, which inludes BoB Log III among others.



There's an interesting video interview with Delaney Davidson giving his life story here.

The Transistors - Real Kids

Saw in the paper that Christchurch band The Transistors were playing Saturday night in Wellington at Mighty Mighty. It would have been nice to see them play again as the last time I saw them was a support band for The Datsuns and The Dirtbombs. Not many people caught them and really missed out. Unfortunately I couldn't make it on Saturday night due to other commitments. Here's a sample of what I missed out on....to my ears this song falls somewhere between The Undertones "Teenage Kicks" and just about every Buzzzcocks song.

High Priestess - High Priestess

Record Label: Ripple Music High Priestess are a recently new Los Angeles trio who play heavy psychedelic music. The band was formed...
