Recording and good vibes

So a lot has happened since we last did an update.

The biggest news is that we’ve spent the last year and a half making a new album!! It’s all very exciting!! We spent a significant amount of time in Lee Prebble’s recording studio (The Surgery) recording bass, drums, clarinets, horns, even a vibraphone. And as a result have recently expanded the live band from our usual team of two or three, into a full band of five (with bass and drums). It’s all very exciting!

In the meantime, here are some flowers and a video of Robin playing the vibraphone for our new album


Upcoming gig, 13th February at Moon, with Seamus Johnson & Poquito House Band

We’re playing at MOON 1 in the classic trio formation on 13th February with a couple of very cool bands! Poquito House Band & Seamus Johnson
It’s $5 entry which is only 28% of the current adult minimum wage, aaand only 26% of the minimum wage as of 01/04/2020. Fascinating.

Seamus Johnson 8-8.25
Grawlixes 8.30-9.30
Poquito House 9.35-10.35

Lake South album now out, featuring Pen’s vocals

We’re getting very quite very near the end of our recording and I wish we could provide visual confirmation of this but I deleted all my photos.
More interestingly, our friend & label mate Lake South has released his very cool new album Wellington | Te Upoko O Te Ika!

You can listen to it everywhere.

Pen also provided backing vocals on half the songs so listen out!
