Wilberforces - New Zealand Tour 2013

Wilberforces - New Zealand Tour 2013


Auckland duo Wilberforces brave the elements from July with a redux of their 2012 Paradise Beach tour – this time armed with more vitriol and, perhaps as important, their 12” EP.

Having undertaken a small break since the release of the EP and the video for “Haunted”, the band undertake a four-centre tour, including a long awaited return to Christchurch – the first time since their 2011 Vipassana tour.

Much like their music at times taking the listener outside of their comfort zone, Auckland’s performance at Shared Space on Cross Street is scheduled to be (as clichéd as this sounds) more of a happening than your stock-standard performance in a bar – while the always incredible reception that Mighty Mighty, Darkroom and Queens have led the band to once again perform in those haunts.

Paradise Beach, released earlier this year, has already led to the band gaining rotation on Auckland radio station 95bFM with the singles “Paradise Beach” and more recently “Magdalene Brothers”, while across the country tracks such as “Fire in The Hills” and “When The Dolls Woke” have been staples on alternative radio outlets; each resonating interestingly enough with the atmospheres in each location… or maybe we’re just being romantic…

Paradise Beach is available in all good record stores, digitally through decent online outlets and through the MUZAI Records store.

Auckland – Friday 12th July – Shared Space, Cross Street (with Civil Union)
Wellington – Friday 19th July – Mighty Mighty (with Fantail)
Christchurch – Friday 2nd August – Darkoom (support TBC)
Dunedin – Saturday 3rd August – Queens (support TBC)

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
