CSS Return to New Zealand

THURSDAY 7 NOVEMBE


POWERSTATION - AUCKLAND

Brazilian dance-punk four-piece CSS make a welcome return to NZ in November following their now-legendary sold out rowdy-as-hell shows of 2007 and 2008 and a stellar turn at 2011's Big Day Out.

CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy or 'I'm so tired of being sexy' - a Beyonce quote - for the uninitiated) are now sporting an all-female line-up since the departure of founding member Adriano Cintra. The band released their fourth album Planta last month, recorded in Los Angeles and helmed by producer-of-the-moment Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio).  Led by the irrepressible diva Lovefoxxx, the album is another electro-pop confection that includes a duet with Gossip's Beth Ditto and features songs co-written with Tim Armstrong of Rancid.

Formed in Sao Paulo in 2003, their 2005 debut captured the tenor of the times thanks to hook-laden, irony heavy tracks like 'Meeting Paris Hilton', 'Music Is My Hot Hot Sex' and instant ear-worm 'Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above'. Always a tumultuous live prospect, they always come to party and their Powerstation show in November will certainly be no exception.

John McBeth: Our World Cup All Blacks

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind. There were often several trials, which sometimes featured over 150 players, possibly an inter island match or a final trial, then we listened to the announcement of the team on radio. The players weren't flown into the capital for a parliamentary function... More>>
