the exponents the first 25 years of the exponents

Sex & Agriculture Tour Jan 2006

With special guests

THE D4

Lock up your babysitters (or at least book them in) for the mighty exponents are coming to a town near you this summer. Yip sir, in the tradition of the Sex Pistols, Duran Duran and, um, Go West the exponents line-up have got back together after 5 years, to get it together and do what they do best: get on the road, pack out a pub and play more top forty singles than most bands can shake a stick at. In fact 18 of them, a NZ record!

Jordan Luck, Brian Jones, Dave Gent and Harry have been rehearsing and writing in honour of their fantastic double CD, ‘ Sex and Agriculture and besides’ NOW PLATINUM SALES and they are bringing their energetic live show to town. Harry’s perfected that whole ‘count-in’ thing, Dave’s found his original strap, Brian’s been working on the guitar solo in ‘Airway Spies’ (clue Brian, there isn’t one) and Jordan has been practicing his best version of ‘Good evening Invercargill and Hamilton!’ in the shower. With both hands, too.

From the early years of ‘Victoria’, ‘Know Your Own Heart’ and ‘All I Can Do’ thru the mid-period ‘My Love For You’ and ‘Christchurch’ to the globe-straddling hits of ‘Why Does Love?’ and ‘Who Loves Who The Most?’ the band will romp through the highlights and sidelights of their career, with a swagger and charm not seen since they first graced our stages back in (gulp) 1980.

Uh-huh, 25 years and not a hair out of place. Grab your friends, your tickets and your mobile (to wave during ‘Nameless Girl’) and come on down to get on up with the exponents.

It’ll be some night out, we reckon. As this really is the last!

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
