1/3 Octave Band
Glory Fckn Sun
Friday 9 June
Aaron Laurence Gallery
326 Lambton Quay, Wellington
(Between Sounds & Westpac at the WILLIS ST END of Lambton Quay)
$5... BYO and a Cushion

Sublime computer/tapes/guitar/voice constructions from Mark Sadgrove
(Plains, Infinitesimal and many other Auckland scene collaborations).
Visceral haziness which has attracted the attention of esteemed labels
such as Celebrate Psi Phenomenon, PseudoArcana and Scarcelight (USA). Last
chance to catch mhfs before he leaves for Japan.

Bill Wood and Jules Desmond knead your brain into a puddle of dribbly goo
with their woozy levitation-drone. Fresh from shows in Australia with
blood-brother Birchville Cat Motel.

Rare live performance from Wellington trio. Great swells of
psych-noise-drone. Antony Milton (guitar), Simon O'Rorke (wall of
percussion) & Ben Spiers (guitar).
