Shihad Line Up Complete

Shihad Line Up Complete


Cairo Knife Fight take coveted Wellington support slot for upcoming Shihad album shows.

Cairo Knife Fight is the dangerous twosome Nick Gaffaney, a man who has drummed his way around the place for many of our leading songwriters, and Aaron Tokona, the founder and front man of iconic rock group Weta. Spitting on the rock band rule book, it’s the drummer stepping out of the shadows to lead. One loop station, a synth and a couple of guitar amps can generate massive noise in the right hands. www.myspace.com/cairoknifefight

In the Christchurch and Auckland slots is The Heavy Metal Ninjas. They are a heavy instrumental band fresh to the scene, but some members should be very familiar to their fans. The Heavy Metal Ninjas are Richie Allan on lead guitar, Minor 5th (Stu Kora) on rhythm and backing solo guitar, Joe Brownless on drums, Fran Kora on bass guitar and Quasar (Laughton Kora) on Rhythm/stunt guitar and keys. They describe their sound as heavy gut-wrenching riffs, fast guitar, with angelic orchestrated melodies.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>

Howard Davis: Get It On, Bang A Gong, Pt I

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>

Sheep: Shearing Record Smashed In Hawke’s Bay
