With Fraserhead recently regaining his RDU DJ licence we’ve had various professionals drop into the show to audit and assess our performance. Yesterday it was the turn of Yvnalesca* to swing by and make sure we were doing the show properly. Ironically the biggest balls up was when we plugged Yvnalesca’s Sunday afternoon set at Civil & Naval. Fraserhead kept calling the bar “Civil & Union”. Apologies. Anyway, head on down to Civil & Union Naval in Lyttelton tomorrow afternoon for some mellow beats.
* Catch Yvnalesca, Scheme and Sheldon Williams on RDU’s newest show – HEDSPACE, Wednesdays 6pm-7.30pm, for their take on techno.
** UPDATE: Since this incident came to light RDU management have reassessed Fraserhead’s DJ licence and he will remain on a restricted licence for the next 6 months.
I quite like the new Bailterspace album “Strobosphere”. One of my favourite bands of all time. The new album brings back good memories of their Christchurch gigs in the late 1980s and early 1990s, possibly the loudest gigs I’ve ever been to.
Bailterspace have been based in NYC for many years now so I never thought I would get to see them play live ever again. Am very tempted to go see them at Laneway in Auckland but found out yesterday that they will be playing at The Dux here in Christchurch on Saturday 2 Feb!!! That’s what I call a homecoming.
Below is the video for “World We Share” from the latest album “Strobosphere”. Damn fine clanging deep sea fishing trawler rock ‘n’ roll I say.
