Captain Carson’s Church of Speed & Custom Burns Into ACL

Captain Carson is handpicking a selection of over 20 of his favourite muscle cars, hot rods and motorcycles for a display of petrolhead nirvana down at Auckland City Limits on 3 March.

Co-creator of the legendary and uncompromising OnePercent magazine, Carson brings his beady eye to bear on the rearview mirror world of hot rods and motorcycles and steers his hand to bringing a stunning selection to City Limits.

“What’s the thread-worm that links this outrageous selection of custom-built metal and two-wheel death-machines that the Captain has gathered together for the inaugural Church Of Speed & Custom at ACL?” asks festival boss-man Campbell Smith.

“It’s Rock n Roll attitude - that’s what! They may not be the fastest, they may not be the shiniest - but this line up of machines represents the free spirit and sheer unbridled power of machines that matches the musical mayhem on offer at City Limits.”

It is a little known fact that The D4 took their name from a Honda gear shift but you won’t find a Car Seat Headrest in any of these vehicles.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
