Former Straitjacket Fit heads into a new Orbit

Former Straitjacket Fit heads into a new Orbit

Seeds of Orbit have listened to the people’s pleas for a mighty homegrown psychedelic band – and boy, have they answered them. Listening to their self-titled EP, you can imagine yourself transported to a lounge draped in purple brocade, incense wafting through the air, the sounds of psychotropic riffage meeting mod pop melodies…feel free to rock out, or simply absorb the music.

Something of a supergroup, this three-piece has a deep love for heavy mod, stoner rock and acid folk. Made up of Mark Petersound (aka Mark Petersen – Straitjacket Fits, Cabbage Bomber, Shaft), Bridgette Bowie (The Doris Days, Cabbage Bomber and legendary all-girl punk band Fake Purr), and Marty Doo (NZ: The Beads; Australia: Glide, Challenger 7, Scruffs, Grapefruit), their mind-alteringly psychedelic debut EP ‘Seeds of Orbit’ has just been released on Powertool Records.

Seeds of Orbit’s release party will be quite the happening, taking flight at Auckland’s Thirsty Dog onSaturday February 22. The support acts are also pretty stunning in their own right - Simon McLaren(Love’s Ugly Children, the Subliminals, Sleepers Union) brings his exciting new band Psychic Maps from Christchurch, and guitar virtuoso Gem Indigo completes the entourage.

The players weren't flown into the capital for a parliamentary function... More>>

Game Review: Midsomer Murders Meets First Year Philosophy

Developed by The Chinese Room, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture sees the player exploring what appears to be a recently abandoned idyllic English village trying to figure out where everybody's gone.

Francis Cook: Weekend SportzMania! All Blacks! Netball!

Sports were on all weekend. I normally don’t write about sports but with Richie McCaw tipped to be the next Prime Minister, and Colin Craig arguing sports are almost as important as politics, I thought “what better time to start!” More>>
