Exponents Sex & Agriculture Tour Jan 2006

20 December 2005

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! the exponents Sex & Agriculture Tour Jan 2006 With special guests THE D4

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 won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Howard Davis: The Back of the Painting

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>


Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>

Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>

Howard Davis: Byrneing Down the House - Spike Lee's American Utopia

Lee does an admirable job capturing Byrne's stunning live performance of his latest album, but the real star of the show is the staging. More>>
