Hailed in their day as “the greatest guitar band in the world” by English rock weekly Melody Maker, Straitjacket Fits cut a swathe through the late 80’s / 90s International alternative rock scene. Emanating from Dunedin and at the forefront of their label Flying Nun’s impeccable international reputation, the Fits’ combination of blistering guitars and potent, haunting melodies earned them a reputation as one of the most powerful live acts on earth with journalists around the globe regularly tripping over themselves to find superlatives to describe the band’s scorching live shows.

Racing - Real Dancing NZ Tour, Dunedin

The long awaited debut album from Racing is finally here!

Real Dancing is due for release on Friday November 9th. To celebrate, the band are launching out across New Zealand for an eight-date tour.

Joined by dynamic indie-electronic duo DUAL for all North Island dates.

Nov 30 - Galatos, Auckland, with DUAL and STARR
Dec 7 - The Yot Club, Raglan, with DUAL and STARR
Dec 8 - Paisley Stage, Napier, with DUAL

‘Real Dancing’ is a bustling night market of spicy grooves, smokey vocals, strange lyrics and venomous guitar tones.

Recorded in Auckland at Roundhead / The Lab Studios and mixed by the Uk’s Dave Eringa (The Who, Manic Street Preachers) this is a Racing in their purest form.

Born of early hour cocktail bars in rural New Zealand, or black ice drives through the Desert road 'Real Dancing' captures the wild and vivid journeys that the band live while touring. This album is filled with an epicurean sensibility, Patron Anejo soaked discoesque grooves, lurid crooning and a love of the road.

Die! Die! Die! - 2018 Winter Tour

Never too far from their next tour, Die! Die! Die! have today announced a three date run of shows stopping in Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington this August and September. 

These shows see former bassist Lachlan Anderson rejoining the band fulltime, and will coincide with a period of writing as they begin work on their seventh full length album, and the follow up to 2017s Charm. Offensive. 
Anderson left Die! Die! Die! in 2011 after recording fourth album Harmony and a gruelling tour of China at the end of a 3 month run. He is currently based in the UK and has been composing soundtracks, including work on the Netflix series Tabula Rasa and the thriller film 6 days. 

With a touring history as blurry and battle scarred as the busiest of artists of their home country, show by show, Die! Die! Die! have focused themselves into a captivating and dependable proposition. Time and time again, they set the well-trod circuits they’ve carved out for themselves alight.

Julian Temple Band Album Release - Dunedin

Julian Temple Band "Antarctica" Album Release w/ Koizilla, The Patsys (Matt Langley & Graeme Peters), Ana Moser (Spinster). 
Doors at 8:30pm / Music from 9pm

Early Bird Tickets for a limited time only - $10 from:

https://www.undertheradar.co.nz/utr/show/SID/60182/N/Julian-Temple-Band-Album-Release.utr

Door Sales $15/$20 with an album. 

Dunedin’s Julian Temple Band are all set to release their latest record “Antarctica” on June 1st, 2018. For their sixth and arguably most textured album to date, JTB have employed the talents of three new members, doubling their line-up since their humble beginnings as a 3-piece - Steve Marshall (Left Or Right) has picked up the low end bass duties, Logan Hampton (Alizarin Lizard) has joined in on keys and synth, and Richard Ley-Hamilton (Males, Space Bats Attack!, Asta Rangu) wails on electric guitar, while stalwarts Paul McLennan-Kissel, Alex Vaatstra and Julian Temple are happily still at the drums, violin, guitar/vocals respectively. 

Lush sounding and never tied down to any sort of genre, the album, which was recorded at Chick's Hotel in Port Chalmers, Dunedin, instates flavours of blues, psychedelic and hooky pop, always with dark and bouncy undertones. Temple's songwriting is still as idiosyncratic as ever yet still familiar in a way that gives the listener an almost tangible soundscape to grasp onto. The band provides a textured hammock for the voice and song to lay back in, with Hampton's Doors-esqe keyboards and Vaatstra's avant-garde violins pushing and pulling to create a combination not often heard. Ley-Hamilton's and Temple's electric and acoustic guitar work flesh the songs out with plenty of dirt, while the rhythm section of Steve Marshall and PMK provide a distinguished pulse that tattoos the listeners ear with an indelible mark. 

Named "Antarctica" after one of the songs, the title suits the album's atmosphere impeccably, lending itself to a vibrant starkness that is cold and dark yet at the same time, provides the warmth one would yearn for in such an environment. 

June 1 - The Cook, Dunedin w/ Koizilla, The Patsys (Matt Langley & Graeme Peters), Ana Moser (Spinster).

Corduroy Cape Mixtape • Being. / Soaked Oats / Ha the Unclear

Being., Soaked Oats and Ha the Unclear will celebrate their new split release Corduroy Cape: A Persnickety Mixtape with a circus in May across four dates in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin. 

TICKETS FROM UNDER THE RADAR
https://www.undertheradar.co.nz/utr/show/SID/60168/N/Corduroy-Cape-Mixtape---Being-Soaked-Oats-Ha-The-Unclear.utr

The Corduroy Cape Mixtape is a peep into each band's sock drawer, lint filter and vacuum bag. A pot-pourri of covers, unreleased material and special demo cuts, a whiff of the familiar and a niff of new noises. It is Pop-hearted and indie-scum, hard cheese and the morning muesli, all glued together with a collegial spirit and a like-minded lilt. 

LISTEN HERE
http://woollenrecords.bandcamp.com/

Tracks will be released in a stagger over the next few weeks with Being.'s 'Fold Into The Sea' first to arrive on Monday April 30.

RELEASE SCHEDULE
Mon April 30 • Being. - 'Fold into the Sea'
Fri May 4 • Soaked Oats - 'Dance Yrself Clean (LCD Soundsystem)'
Fri May 11 • Ha the Unclear - 'Battery Farm'
Tues May 15 • 'Corduroy Cape: A Persnickety Mixtape' full release

The seed for the split release was sown during an overzealous post-show conversation when everybody involved shared a bill at Auckland's Whammy Bar. Composed mostly of hand gestures, yelling and disproportionate body language it was ordained and somehow communicated that said split release should contain both a cover and an original from each band. The Corduroy Cape Mixtape was conceived.

Now with 35 or so albums under their belts, they are looking to a new LP this year on Ba Da Bing, entitled 'Rare Ravers', as well as a seven date Scandinavian tour in June, winding up in Helsinki at the Sideways Festival. What better warm up for the fjords than a gig at the Cook? Imagine chasing the Yorkshire circumnavigator through the bloody shallows of Kealakekua Bay - war club upraised - 'Bad Politics' running through your head. He's one dead palangi. 

Remember what John Peel said about the Fall: 'always different, always the same'? That's the Dead C too. Support will be provided by local upstarts Bad Sav, what more can you ask for, the Bad and the Dead on one great bill?
This is a very rare opportunity to experience one of New Zealand's most Internationally acclaimed bands. Not to be missed.
