A lot of great things have emerged from the stale confines of the schoolyard, and new to the list is Lady Luck, an up and coming New Zealand band who all met in the late 90ís at school before coming together in August last year as Lady Luck.
Sonically Lady Luck are pure fun. The band's sound takes from an extensive range of sources, seamlessly melding chalk and cheese into something really quite distinct. Itís a breath of fresh air to see a band take a love of Colour Me Badd, Blondie, Madonna, Pet Shop Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Motley Crue, The Rapture, Fischerspooner, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Kills and turn it into foot stomping, disco-laden rock'n'roll.
It seems that once an audience gets a taste of Lady Luck they keep coming back for more. Lady Luck have sass. Attitude. Panache. Their live show packs a driving disco back beat that'll have you dancing for sure. It's been 12 months since their inception but they've come along way in a short space of time with support gigs, tours, singles and headline shows. Their single 'Disco Disco', (playing now) scaled the heights of the New Zealand indie charts - resting itself at number one, and anyone who's heard this decked out disco-rock gem will know what I'm talking about.
Their reputation has spread beyond New Zealand, with the band opening for The Roger Sisters, My Disco! and Holly Golightly in the past year. Lady Luck are coming up fast and one would think won't be playing bridesmaid for much longer.
Lady Luck have an infectious energy, and ache with that special, hard to pinpoint and unnamable quality that you know will put their name in pretty bright lights some day. The world still has to be conquered by this young band but in the meantime catch them live - any chance you get. You won't be disappointed.

Well it turns out that where there's a Lady Luck gatecrash performance ... there's the party paparazzi not far behind!
Party snapper Petra Jane managed to get some shot's of Lady Luck's surprise gig in Hamilton on Friday night. Log onto http://www.petrajane.com for images of Lady Luck partying alongside The Crazy 88's and The New Caledonia, performing at at Duane's Birthday Party at country-themed Diggers Bar.
True to Hamilton form, Lady Luck's lead singer Rachel gave Birthday Boy Duane a run for his amp-climbing money, climbing right into the rafters, well equipped with red cowboy boots to fit in with the country vibe of Diggers - yee-haw!
Lady Luck then sauntered up to Auckland the following night to join rap-n-rollers Coco Solid and crazy cats The Blunts for another show. Photographer's Andrew Tidball and Milana Radojcic were there to document the occasion, and you can check out their shots here: http://www.cheeseontoast.co.nz
Hope to see you Wellingtonians at Room 101 this Friday night - should be a killer show with Lady Luck joining lycra-wearing Charlie Ash and art-rap collective Trimasterbate for the first time. Ooh and Aucklanders, we'll see you at Edens Bar next Friday night with the Cash, Tri crew and electronic DIY master, Disasteradio in tow.
x Lady Luck
