A Small Visit

I spent the weekend in Auckland. I had been waiting for 15 years to see Faith No More, and they didn’t disappoint. I’ll now do anything in my power to see them again. Genius.

While up there, I also caught up with Tono and opened a gig for him and Tiny Ruins at the Wine Cellar. Once again, a nice night at the Wine Cellar, which is one of my favourite bars in the country, and it was great to catch up with some of the Dunedin diaspora. I still don’t think I’ve got the hang of Auckland crowds though.

The year really kicks off for the band though in a little under a month. We have a good schedule coming together for the first half of the year with a solid band lineup and we’ll be testing out some new material. More about that soon!

New Review

I’m not sure how long this one will be up, but Tim at daggerzine.com says:

“Sunley is actually Evan Sunley James, a New Zealand resident who has created a fine little record here with some cracked Americana. What you hear is a busted banjo, shuffling drums, dusty acoustic guitars and on top is Sunley’s yearning vocals, not completely unlike a NZ-bred Will Oldham (minus the voice cracking). No crazed warbling here just good songs.”

I must admit I’m pretty happy about that one!
