SOUTHERN AMP COMES NORTH ANNOUNCING EXCLUSIVE AUCKLAND SIDE-SHOWS!
BUZZCOCKS ‘Another….. Bites Tour’ + The Rabble – THE STUDIO – SATURDAY 14th NOVEMBER 8.00pm
BUZZCOCKS are quite simply one of THE most important and influential bands of all time. One of the founding fathers of punk rock and pioneers of independent record labels, they have released the greatest stream of punk pop singles of all time. In March 1978 BUZZCOCKS released their debut album ‘Another Music in a Different Kitchen’ and in the process created the template for pop-punk and a thousand imitators everywhere. Six months later, they released ‘Love Bites’ the more progressive but equally infectious follow-up that reached #13 on the UK charts.
In January 2009 BUZZCOCKS announced the ‘Another… Bites' tour performing BOTH classic albums in their entirety and selling out an entire UK tour. Add in some bonus non-album tracks and you have the perfect Buzzcocks set-list, the perfect gig. Across the two albums are some of the genuine classics of the punk-era including Orgasm Addict, What Do I Get, Autonomy, Oh Shit, Fast Cars, Get On Your Own, Sixteen Again, Just Lust and the crossover anthem Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldnt've). For Wellington fans, Buzzcocks also play Bodega on Friday 13th November.
THE VEILS & guest JAMES DUNCAN – JUICE BAR at WINDSOR CASTLE – SUNDAY 15th NOVEMBER 8.00pm
Tickets $39.50 + (bkg fee) / R18 restricted
Finn Andrews, the striking frontman of The Veils has a streak of lovelorn bleakness as deep as the night is long” said the LA Times as they reviewed a recent show by the Antipodean/UK quartet. “His creepy preacher hat, and an unshaven, alabaster complexion that suggests he lives off a varied diet of scotches, only accented the band's sense of gnawing doom - though it was leavened with melodic sweetness and a lovely ear for arrangement detail.” The Veils’ third Rough Trade album Sun Gangs has been universally hailed as their best and sees Finn and the band striking a rich vein of form, capturing a emotional range in their music from joyous indie pop to compulsively gloomy epics worthy of the Doors..
