MUZAI Records celebrates 5 years... by moving overseas...

LAST EXIT TO MUZAI - COME SAY BYE BEFORE WE LEAVE?

MUZAI: Year 5
The Wine Cellar and Whammy Bar, St Kevin’s Arcade, Auckland – 17th May 2014


Auckland independent record label MUZAI Records have achieved a feat that still never ceases to amaze them – they’re still operational. More-so, they’ve been going for five years; that’s half a decade, for the mathematically inclined.

Cue vast amounts of back slapping and handshakes for lasting that lot. Thank you, thank you…

It just so happens that the label is also leaving New Zealand this year, and basing itself in the sunnier climates of Manchester, England – thus becoming (to the best of our knowledge) the world’s first “British-based New Zealand record label.”

MUZAI Records have always had an annual get together during New Zealand Music Month – something they consider their musical equivalent of Wrestlemania. This time however is their last anniversary show on New Zealand soil. Cue sighs of sadness or relief, pending on your disposition…

Taking place at two venues who have supported them throughout their tenure in New Zealand – The Wine Cellar and Whammy Bar – this last stand of MUZAI bands and friends brings together some of the best alternative music that the country has to offer; different, sometimes transgressive, other times “weird”, but all part of a community that has on a number of occasions supported one another… and some comrades along the way.

Apparently you can’t have live music also without cheap drinks – so the good folk at Sapporo and Coopers have graciously helped us out in that department, while we give thanks to Cheese on Toast for their support during our time of transition.

Thanks to our supporters: Coopers, Sapporo and Cheese on Toast.co.nz.

Game Review: Until Dawn - Pick Your Own Horrible Adventure

Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn sees a group of dumb sexy teenagers take a trip to a spooky mansion atop a mountain. It is, obviously, a horror game. However, the game is so ridiculous it turns out to be more of a comedy. More>>

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>>

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.

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>>
