Action Bronson to Perform at Galatos Live This Thursday

Action Bronson might have been the biggest news in Hip Hop this year. Playing one show at Auckland’s Galatos this Thursday 10 January, don’t miss your chance to see him live. Limited tickets still available.

Check out his message to his Kiwi fans here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=suUNlx7V5ug

Hailing from Queens, NYC, Bronson went from relative newcomer to an icon in the space of a year.

An ex-chef, of Albanian descent, Action Bronson captured the imagination of Hip Hop fans and took the genre to places it hadn't been in years.

His considerable physical presence and often bizarre lyrics - drawing on obscure wrestling references, fine foods and blunts 'the size ofMutumbo's arm' have earned him a worldwide fan base and a cult following.

Through collaborations with artists such as Ghostface Killah, Odd Future, Riff Raff, Party Supplies and Harry Fraud, Bronson has managed to release a musically diverse and prolific catalogue in a very short time - signing a deal with Warner Brothers Music group this year.

Those seeking a new hero for Hip Hop amongst a sea of identical rappers are now flocking to Bronson - a hulking figure with a resplendent orange beard, fluro shades and two joints burning at once, waving a freak flag banner high above all of his competition.

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>>
