My old friend Darcy and his band Cure Motel are doing an NZ tour at the mo. They’re playing tonight at Churchills in Christchurch and at Dux Live on Sunday 19th October.
Cure Motel is filthy electro synth along the lines of Mulchzoid. Darcy is originally from Wellington but is now Melbourne based and I used to DJ with him and his crew when they came to town back in the mid-2000s. You might remember one of their gigs at Capitol Bar where the artist Reality Compound performed the song “Get Some Pussy” resulting in RC pouring a bottle of milk on his fury cat soft toy. Needless to say that the Bar Manager and his security were not happy.
There’s a new music video from local ratbags The Transistors for their song “Professional” from the album “Is This Anything?”.
With all this talk in the music industry about bands needing to up their game, Transistors have created a useful ‘how to’ guide for playing a music industry showcase. Watch and learn. The footage was shot by Suren Unka, and video produced and edited by Ricky P. Sewell at Dirt Brown Productions.
Harley Williams and Charlotte Ivey aka The Tiny Lies have just released their first video, ‘I Am a Ghost’. It is directed by Tim McInnes, Sabin Holloway as Director of Photography with editing by Harley himself. It sure is a beautiful yet dark piece of digital celluloid.
