THURSDAY 4th JULY - FABRIC, LONDON, UK

LOOP Recordings Aot(ear)oa launches itself into the UK market with what will undoubtedly be the largest showcase of New Zealand music held outside of our own shores in 2002. Produced in association with Crazy Baldhead Ltd. and ABC Recordings, Return Of The Aotearoanz is the follow-up to last year's roadblock London gig The Underground Sounds Of The Aotearoanz, held at Cargo on August 23rd 2001. The first Aotearoanz gig, which featured Pitch Black, Freq Nasty, Max Maxwell, Automatic and a Kog Transmissions crew, sold out with over 300 people having to be turned away. This year's Return Of The Aotearoanz gig features a bigger, broader line-up featuring LOOP Select 003 CD artists Pitch Black, Fat Freddy's Drop, Ebb and epsilon-blue, and through necessity will be held at larger venue Fabric, one of London's most popular clubs.
