Holy smokes yo! Wellington outfit Elston Gun, who now features CHCH’s very own Tom from The Deceivers, are gonna be hitting The Bedford in Christchurch on Friday 23rd October! Elston Gun are a very slick rock’n’roll machine indeed and are inspired by the likes of the Queens of the Stone Age, The Kings of Leon, The Bronx, The Black Keys and of course the mighty Jimi Hendrix. Joining them from the garden city will be T54, Pikachunes, and myself, Dr Hitchcock.
T54 are a newish band on the CHCH scene and blew the punters away at the RDU RounD-Up band competition final, they didn’t win but heaps of cats thought they should’ve. And then there is Pikachunes aka Miles McDougall. This started as a solo project when Miles was laid up in bed after an unfortunate gaming accident (pika-pika), poor old Miles came off a little singed after going head-to-head with a raging flame-o-saurus. He also did quite well in RDU’s band comp winning the inaugural “Best Demo” compeition for his song “fire”. Oh yeah, I’m gonna be closing the night with a DJ Set of party rock’n’roll’n’what-not… any requests? Leave them below in the comments or tweet me baby @starliftertv ***
