Boxcar Bulletin...


The Boxcars Guitars are fresh back from their debut visit to Wellington (on Saturday night) and it was a blast, big thanks to The Chandeliers for being 'the hostess's with the mostest' and the staff (especially Sally) from the venue Happy...

The band also had a blast when the opened for American legend Howe Gelb last Thursday, in fact Howe invited the band (except John, he needed his beauty sleep) on stage to guest on a few songs, a very unique night indeed....

If you haven't been able to catch 'The Guitars' at their last few show, then here's another opportunity;

- Thursday 29th September - The Boxcar Guitars and the Spoils Duo (see below) @ the Odeon Lounge.

PS The Boxcar Guitars 'Lamp Light' EP is out now available from all good record stores and fabulous record websites!

You can also view the bands video to 'My Love Is Blue' here



The Spoils Duo are Sean Simmons & Bronwyn Henderson are core members of Melbourne band, The Spoils. Comprising of vocals, violin, accordion, glockenspiel, harmonica and a drone box, Sean & Bronwyn boast a varied sound with more colour and texture than the usual acoustic duo. Described as side-show balladry coupled with the perils and pitfalls of a dysfunctional circus, Sean & Bronwyn have an impeccable rapport on stage that has won them a dedicated fan base in their home country of Australia.

"Simmons & Henderson are a musical pairing difficult to fault in both instrumentation and style TIME-OFF, BRISBANE Its like watching Paul Kelly because every songs a classic'INPRESS, MELBOURNE

"If Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds were to write the score for a Morricone film they would sound like the Spoils" MILES OF MUSIC U.S.A
