LOOP Newsletter October 2004

Fri, 29 Oct 2004

Kia Ora and Happy Spring to you.

We, the LOOP cats, have taken a moment to wipe our sweaty brows and breath deep, coz we have been very busy since our last news letter.

Firstly, long awaited FLY MY PRETTIES, the live album Lee Prebble recorded at Bats, featuring Barnaby Weir and the all star Welli massive is out in shops now. It is receiving great reviews, so check it out. Lucky, the first single on the album has been released to radio and is currently doing the vid rounds. It will be on HUM this weekend.

Further ado...if you would like to see a doco, lovingly put together by the Nektar crew, on the whole live album process, from Barnabys brain to BATS, check out C4.The first screening is Monday night, the 1st of November at 10:30 pm and the second is Sunday the 7th at 7pm. LOOP would like to take a moment to thank Tara who has slaved over her screen for yonks to get the doco to its fine caliber...cheers!

Finally we are going to kick up our hoofs on Saturday the 6th of November for the FLY MY PRETTIES album release party at Indigo. Carey Young, set designer extra-ordinare has said she wants to make the boys look super sexy this time round, so even if you caught a BATS show you should come along. Tickets are $20 from Chelsea Records (Cnr Cuba and Dixon) and The CD Store Lambton Quay. If ya miss out on a pre-sale there will be 50 door sales only and well sting ya for an extra five bucks.

TOMMY have tried and traveled the whole country, but if you live in Nelson you have not missed out, for they arrive on your golden shores tonight. Catch our beloved lads TONIGHT FRIDAY THE 29th at The Phat Club with support from wicked Draw. If you live in Marahau (or want to catch TOMMY twice) get yo self to the The Park Cafe on SATURDAY THE 30th

If you haven't heard the name Rhian Sheehan for a while GET READY. Rhian has been a busy beaver roundin up remixes from all over the globe and his will be the next fantastic album we drop.

Finally we are listening to the moans and complaints and MODULE (our multi-taskin musician) is upgrading our website. (And the LOOP staff go wild...screams, whistles, hats in the air, etc)

See ya in the drink xx LOOP
