T54 Announce Melbourne Shows + New Video for 'AC Parade'

T54 Announce Melbourne Shows + New Video for 'AC Parade'

Christchurch three-piece T54 are heading west this March for their first ever series of concerts outside their native New Zealand.

Playing 3 times in the city of Melbourne, Australia between March 19th and 23rd, T54arrive on the back of their recently released debut album In Brush Park and will be parading their wonderful blend of dream trash, acid guitar drones and spluttering fuzz pop with a selection of Melbourne's finest musical gems.

Having been up and down their home country since 2009 (including 2011's Big Day Out, and 2012's Camp A Low Hum) T54 have earned praise for their loud and intense live shows, loaded with charging distortion, insane feedback, robotic rhythms and wonderfully crafted pop songs.

Following four EPs and last year's full length "In Brush Park", they have been receiving cheerfully positive reviews and sympathetic mentions from the likes of Melbourne's The Beat, TheMusic.com.au (4 stars), Under the Radar + Rip It Up.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

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>>
