Phony Bone... Make Music!!

PHONY BONE …MAKE MUSIC!!

To begin: Phony Bone write great songs.

We’ve been around for about a year and a half now, playing with a variety of bands in a variety of Auckland venues –that’s not the important part - and we are now on the verge of (actually, about a day or two before) releasing our first recordings! Five songs! “There’s at least three singles there” we said as we drove around in Graham’s blue Daihatsu, checking the final mixes, and that statement remains true even after we’ve had sufficient time to doubt it. One song’s already been tested out on a human audience - ‘Penny’ was recently included in the September issue of A Low Hum magazine, as well as a full dapper profile on the band. Also, only two weeks ago we were featured (and played pretty well) on Mikey Havoc’s ‘fancy new band’.

This recording on disc thing we did was recorded at Gundry Audio, where it was produced and mixed by the resident audio champion, Damien Golfinopoulos (who is also recording all kinds of exciting other bands lately, like Don Julio and the Hispanic Mechanic and The Romanovas).

Oh yes, and in celebration of our having concrete evidence of our music, we’re playing a couple of gigs and a UHF TV show this week, including: Thursday the 2nd at the Schooner Tavern with Dynamo Go and The Lovehaters and Friday the 3rd at Sohl Bar with Dynamo Go in Hamilton. But that’s all a bit soon. From you we just need a moment’s attention. Go to our website, try ‘Penny’.

Thanks for your time!

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>>
