Loud at Lucha: Seeds of Orbit, the Roulettes and Loud Ghost


(*You can win a double pass, a Seeds of Orbit CD and t-shirt, a Roulettes album and a copy of the unreleased Loud Ghost single by visiting the Facebook event page…)
It’s a psychedelic rock tour-de-force: 3 of Auckland's finest guitar bands combine forces for an aural onslaught of twisted pop and deep psych vibes.

Seeds of Orbit have listened to the people’s pleas for a mighty homegrown psychedelic band – and boy, have they answered them. 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 PetersenStraitjacket 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’ is out now on Powertool Records – and they really bring it to life when they play live!
Listen to the EP here.
The Roulettes’ second, self-titled album is definitive of the band’s predilections, obsessions and strengths. Short punchy rock/pop gems with lyrics to pay attention to are delivered with maximum energy. The Roulettes was formed by Benand Justin in Auckland in the early 2000s from the ashes of alcohol-fuelled Dunedin rock’n’roll bands (Funhouse, Bike). They released two EPs (You Want It and Unread Books) before settling on the ever-awesome Mark Queenin (Bike, Garageland) on drums.“Located between power pop, indie rock and with a fine sense of focused economy… (songs which) would slip in comfortably alongside the best of US indie rock…” Graham Reid, www.elsewhere.co.nz

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>>
