Beauty is a Weapon

Beauty is a Weapon’ is set to be a unique and original, multi-faceted fashion show featuring ISH fashion and fabulous visual and aural content combined by Wellington's own infinitely talented Sally Tran.

Tran has been baffling audiences with her high-energy fashion shows for two years and she promises this to be her masterpiece. Using extraordinarily over sized props and the talents of Wellington's finest musicians, artists, models and designers, Beauty is a Weapon will present a tale where beauty proves to be the ultimate downfall.

Set to an original score by award winning composer Dylan Lardelli, Beauty Is a Weapon will be completed by a circus of talent including a 6-piece string ensemble, vocals from Charlie ASH's Rosie Riggir, and Matt Pender from Odessa. The show will also feature a troupe of tap-dancing percussionists, drummer Otis Chamberlain and vocalist, Various visuals provided by Guy Capper, and local bands So So Modern and Charlie ASH.

Fly My Pretties 2

LOOP Recordings Aot(ear)oa are pleased to confirm that the rumours are trueŠ

Building on the tremendous success of last year's collaborative event, Fly My Pretties is returning with a new line-up, and a new flock of tunes to set you free.

Recently, Fly My Pretties was nominated for 6 B-net nominations (receiving Best Pop Album), achieved gold-status, and is being released in the UK. In another exciting development, a new Fly My Pretties incarnation recently performed a four-show season at The Leigh Sawmill Café to full houses.

In Fly My Pretties 2, Barnaby Weir will once again take the stage with a new who's who of local kiwi talent (a secret being kept close to LOOP's hearts for nowŠ) to perform, record, and film a season of live performances, which will then be released on album.

Building on last year's efforts, Fly My Pretties 2 is going to be performed in both Wellington and Auckland in late September.

Tickets to the shows will be available from Real Groovy as of July 26th. The dates are: (To those that tried to buy tickets this week apologies for the lateness...)

Paramount Theatre - Wellington Thursday 15th September Friday 16th September Saturday 17th September (2 shows)

Hopetoun Venue - Auckland Thursday 29th September Friday 30th September Saturday 31st September (2 Shows)

Keep your ear to the ground for more FMP2 information to comeŠ



In the age of surveillance, it's reassuring to see that one person hasn't lost their sense of humour. Directed by UK based New Zealand filmmaker Andrew Johnson, and shot on the grey streets of London and Berlin, this is the latest video from The Video Kid's album Prototype. CCTV sees our hero Bret McKenzie putting on a hilarious cabaret for the cameras in our daily lives. Sporting his trademark tracksuits, and 'stunning' dance repertoire, CCTV is classic.

In other Video Kid news, the tune 'Video Kid' has recently featured on the latest Back To Mine compilation by the Pet Shop Boys, and being distributed worldwide.

His album Prototype is in store now!!
