November 2004 - NZ Music In Australia

In the second Big Day Out announcement, more NZ acts have been added to the Australian dates. The D4, Scribe & P Money, and Deceptikonz will join Concord Dawn on next year's traveling circus.

Speaking of BDO, the Beastie Boys are playing their own side shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Supporting them is Scribe, personally picked by the Beasties to do the shows. Scribe's new single 'Dreaming' is getting a lot of radio and video airplay. The clip is screening on SBA, Video Hits Uncut, and probably a couple more channels by the time you read this. 'Dreaming' is also on a steady climb in radio land, rising up the national airplay charts from 68th to 58th, and then 51st in the last few weeks. Following the pattern established by 'Stand Up', 'Dreaming' is picking up plenty of night plays, currently sitting 2nd on that chart. 'Stand Up' is still sticking around too, sitting at 73 on the national airplay chart after some 14 weeks.

Evermore's new single 'For One Day' was the 3rd most added on the alternative radio chart in the week of its release This follows on from the success of

'It's Too Late', which reached number 16 on the singles chart this month. 'It's Too Late' is still performing extremely well at radio charting in the mid-20s overall this month, and topping the contemporary rock chart for consecutive weeks, and even managing to keep Australia's most played song (from good old Aussie boys Powderfinger) at bay on that format's chart. Evermore will go on tour in support of The Tea Party on their upcoming November/December Australian tour.

The clip for Dei Hamo's 'We Gon' Ride' is screening on SBA, Rage, Channel V, and Channel 9 So Fresh. The single is released at retail on Nov 22nd. Dei Hamo supports D12 on their three Australian dates in December.

The Finn Brothers tour Australia from November 20th to December 3rd, the ten shows culminating in three consecutive sold out nights at the Sydney State Theatre. 'Won't Give In' has worked well at radio, and is now slowly dropping down the charts. Their next single 'Anything Can Happen' has just hit Australian radio programmers' desks.

Mareko's 'Stop Drop 'N' Roll' is being strongly supported at radio, following on from interest in the video. The song has climbed to number 3 on the alternative radio chart after three weeks on air.

Steriogram have released their new single Road Trip to retail.

NZ independent music magazine A LOW HUM is soon to be available at limited locations in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney. Outlets can be found online at

This year's tenth anniversary Homebake festival has sold out, ensuring plenty of punters will see Scribe, The D4, and Die! Die! Die! amongst the local acts.
