Thanks to Nick for answering these questions:
(Questions were answered in April)

What can we expect to see from Eqwanox over the next year?

Our debut album 'All Roads Lead From Here' came out April 5 nationwide and we then supported Dragon in Hamilton on their recent NZ tour. We are about to embark on our own tour covering as many towns as we can in the North Island and all going well with album sales we will get down to the South Island for a few shows. We will spend all of 2010 promoting the album and look forward to playing some great shows over summer.

Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?

Shihad because they just keep on keeping on and keep producing hit after hit (and F%c$*ng rule live!), Black River Drive's single is pretty epic, going to have to hit those guys up for a show or something! 

How do you believe Eqwanox fits into the NZ music industry?

That’s a question I often think about. I see us as outsiders/underdogs and I guess that gives us a nothing to lose attitude

How do you describe Eqwanox's music?

We see our music as Rock with elements of Punk, Grunge and Pop Rock. Everyone has their own opinion though. We have been likened to Rise Against, NOFX, The Offspring etc. With our album being recorded over 2 years ago we have written a lot of new songs and have been playing a lot of them at shows so we are already looking forward to album number 2.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

This theatre in New Plymouth which I think is called the TSB Theatre? We played there a couple of years ago and I always remember it being a great venue – St James Theatre was always great in Auckland. My favourite venue to watch shows at is The Civic in Auckland, I love the whole outdoor feel when the lights go down.

What inspired you to become a start Eqwanox?

Our love for rock music and being in a small town where being in a band was something different. It took us a while to work out what we wanted to play and what we wanted to do with it but we have stuck at it and are still enjoying it as much as we ever had.

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

Supporting Seether was a dream come true and an amazing day overall, it was crazy to be playing an arena show so that is one I will always remember. Masterton Town Hall in 2009 was a pretty insane crowd and easily the best show of the last year so far.

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

Facebook is the main tool we use at the moment, MySpace has turned from a place to keep in in touch with people to more of an online press kit to link people to when you are selling the band to someone etc.

Eqwanox proudly support The New Zealand Child Cancer Foundation, and are James Hanright (lead vocals, guitar), Nick Douch (drums, backing vocals), Aaron Clark (bass, backing vocals) and Zakk Wetton (guitar).

Thanks to Rob for answering these questions:

What can we expect to see from Puppeteer over the next year?

We've just released our debut album, 'Tucked In By Brutality' so we're currently booking a long string of shows around the North Island to support the release and get these songs into the minds of Metal/Hard Rock fans. That should see us busy through till around August hopefully. Other plans on the near horizon include our first video clip, new merchandise and our annual December To Dismember Tour which we are hoping to this year take all over the country.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Get out there and play, that's all I can say. Nothing beats the thrill of playing to a crowd of music fans, I've been doing this 6 years now and I still get excited for every show. Oh and also spend time on getting decently produced recordings that help you stand out.

Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?

We dig alot of underground/indie Metal & Hardcore acts such as Saving Grace, Harvest, Fuelset, Life Lament & In Dread Response. These bands really resonate with us as we are in a similar scene, we've been lucky to share the stage with a few of them too. The guys in Fuelset are great & have given us two support slots for them now including our very first show back in 2008.

As far as major acts go I gotta say I love the classic kiwi bands; Shihad, The Datsuns, The Exponents & of course the legendary Jordan Luck. These band's need their own genre, "Kiwi." you hear it and you can just tell it's from New Zealand.

Tadpole & Blindspott are two more acts that were just brilliant in our eyes, they are big influences on all of us as they were heavy but with the groove which we just LOVE.

What will Puppeteer's next release be?

Despite the fact we've only just put out a new album, the ideas are already flowing in and we're working on writing new songs already. We're in talks about maybe doing a Split-EP with another band maybe later in the year which will include a combination of both band's writing a song as one track for the CD.

How do you come up with your lyrics?

During the writing process of 'Tucked In By Brutality', Scott (bass) & I came up with this interesting idea of doing a concept album that centered around Nighmares. Before we knew it the simple theme grew to something with much more depth, the best way of putting it is "A mans nightmare fueled descent into paranoid psychosis." This made the lyric writing alot of fun whilst a challenge for the two of us. I tell ya, making a whole album that is one story is a mission.

Who would you most like to support live?

Metallica (rumour has it there due here in November so fingers crossed), Machine Head, Iron Maiden. Basically any of the brilliant classic American & British Metal and Hard Rock acts.

How do you believe Puppeteer fits into the NZ music industry?

The new album has really opened new doors for us in the industry, we've gained interest from the NZ Metal Army and we're playing a few shows on their May tour. Also couple of the DJs on Planet FM, in Auckland have been real supportive of us the last few months so things seem to be on the up for us in the metal sector of the NZ music Industry.

Watch this space... There's a new wave of Kiwi heavy metal bands coming up big and strong & we're bang smack in the middle of the group.

What can you never leave home without?

My Ipod, I love that thing. Or guitar picks apparently, I always find one in my pocket without even knowing it was there.

Hell, once i hired a suit and put my hand in the pocket when I was trying it on and there was a pick. It was nuts.

How do you describe Puppeteer's music?

Thrashing Groove Metal with a splash of Hardcore.
Think Metallica & Iron Maiden meet Machine Head with a touch of Trivium.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Kings Arms, No doubt about it. That place rules.

What is the best part of being a musician?

When you can look out from the stage and see someone singing lyrics you wrote.
Or when you can actually hear a group of people singing them. That's the greatest feeling.

What is in your CD collection at home?

LOTS. everything from Blues & Country to Hardcore Punk & Death Metal.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Let's see. Maybe when I fell up steps on stage at an outdoor gig in January 09 during our last song. That kinda stuff happens to me all the time on stage though so nothing abnormal, if you come to a show there is a chance I'll stumble over something.

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

Oh mate, there's been so many awesome gigs. Our Album Release Show was a definate highlight of our career.

The Tauranga, Auckland & New Plymouth dates of our 2009 Tour were also AMAZING.

My favourite early gig was probably the Cliff Burton Tribute we played in 2008 when we played 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' & 'Creeping Death' by Metallica and the crowd got their heads banging. That was the first time that happened for us so I jumped in there with them guitar and all. I got a pick of it somewhere.

What is your favourite place in NZ to be?

There's this little quiet spot called Pureroa where we went camping to during our break over Christmas & New Years.

Took the acoustics and sat round a camp fire. It's like just south of Taupo.

As far as gigging place goes probably Taranaki, the fans & bands there are so friendly they just wander over and start having a big chat to you like you're old buddies. Big ups to the Naki.

What inspired you to become a start Puppeteer?

I was playing in this blues rock band, Acid Rain. Ryan (ex-drummer) and this guy Callum (ex-guitarist) thought of starting a metal band. At the time I was getting into alot of Southern Metal so thought I'd talk to them about setting up a side project to Acid Rain. Thus Overproof was born, I was originally bass player but when we decided to play a more thrash based sound I jumped on guitar & we changed our name to Puppeteer. The band was only supposed to be a fun little outlet to get my metal influences out of my system so they didn't affect Acid Rain, we did 2 shows supporting my other band and at the end of the second night, Acid Rain & I parted ways. That was it for us, Metal was my true passion in music so after enlisting my childhood friend Scott on the bass we had a complete lineup and were ready to make a serious impact. Enter Fuelset, we got on the bill as opener for these guys when they came to Tauranga. That was our first real show.

How did you come up with the name Puppeteer?

In 1986, Metallica released what many (including us) call the greatest Thrash Metal Album ever 'Master Of Puppets' when Ryan, Callum & I were throwing name ideas around in the early days one of us mentioned Puppeteer as sort of a homage name to Metallica. I can't recall who exactly said it but I think originally it was half joking... but then we thought on it and realised it was the only name for us. Our original name was Overproof, to go with the southern element I wanted to go with but that didn't suit the thrash route we took.

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

When we play I talk to them between songs and give them opportunities to answer my questions, MySpace & Facebook are a cool idea, when people write us an email I try real hard to answer every single one personally. Also if you're a fan and really go hard at a show I generally come up and talk to ya.

What rumour would you like to start about Puppeteer?

Vaughan (Lead Guitar) is really Wolverine from X-Men.

Puppeteer is (from left to right in top photo) Vaughan Pirie (lead & rythym guitars), Scott McNab (bass, backing vocals), Sam Lincoln (drums) and Rob Sadd (lead vocals, lead & rythym guitars).

Puppeteer have just released their debut album 'Tucked In By Brutality'. You can win the CD with muzic.net.nz and read the review here.



Thanks to Jade for answering these questions:

What can we expect to see from you over the next year?

We want to record a new album some time this year - which we’re holding out to do pretty badly of course! We’re also cramming in as many live shows as possible and growing our sound.

What will your next release be?

We’re trying to release a video for 'Leaving' but our next major release will be our debut album 'Coast' on May 3rd. Then hopefully another album will follow it a little later on this year or early next year.

How do you describe your music?

An eclectic mix of genres -dub funk psychedelic rock.

Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?

Kora, because of their solid musicianship and they’re just so energetic and strong when they perform. Shapeshifter, The Checks, Silk and Tiki Taane. We love Fat Freddy’s Drop – they have so much soul. The Black Seeds, Salmonella Dub and we’re digging Six60 at the mo. I love watching quality musicianship, there’s always something new you can learn.

How do you come up with your lyrics?

For me lyrics are usually not that hard to come up with. I write about things that I’m really passionate about, things that affect people emotionally and physically.

What can you never leave home without?

My Dictaphone, I record riffs and lyrics and melodies wherever I go.

What is the best part of being a musician?

Creating Art for the Ears and expressing it. Love it.

What is in your CD collection at home?

I have lots (as you would expect) but I always go back to my favourites, which are Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shapeshifter, Sublime, Rage, Jack Johnson, Kora and I’m liking Six60 at the mo.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Turning up to the Auckland 'Rock To The Top' Competition 2009 (which we won in the end) but in the semi finals I turned up on stage and had forgotten my power leads to my pedals! Needless to say, I nearly died. Fortunately the guys before us had a spare one, which powered my board - we played and got through to the finals. Phew!

What is your favourite place in NZ to be?

Home with my family.

What inspired you to become a musician?

I've always been one – I was singing at 3 and taught myself to play the guitar at 7. It was always gonna happen!

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

Probably the Auckland 'Rock to the Top' Finals. We were up against some good bands but our trio won out. When it’s on the line we don’t hold anything back. Each gigs gotta be better than the last.

Coast is Jade Pritchard (guitar, lead vocals), Abe Pai (bass, backing vocals) and Ben Trinick (drums).

Coast's debut self titled album is was released on May 3 at Auckland's Juice Bar.



How did you come up with the name Cybiont?

The name Cybiont was coined by French scientist and thinker Joel de Rosnay.

In his book 'The Symbiotic Man' he argues that we are on the verge of a new, profound evolutionary leap. The next stage in the natural progression from lower to higher levels of organization – cell into organism, organism into population, population into ecosystem – is the Cybiont - a hybrid biological/mechanical/electronic super organism that includes humans, machines and networks. The Cybiont is a living planetary super-organism under construction.

As a “wanna-be symbiotic man” – there was no better name to chose for this musical venture.

How do you describe Cybiont’s music?

A personal journey – that’s been made available for others to explore. Probably something that is stuck in-between music and junk... It has been compared to Nick Cave, traditional african music, Kraftwerk, Cirque de Solei, Kurt Veil and more. NZ Magazine called it 'eco-electro' and others have compared it to a modern day Lou Reed. I would be happy if listeners described it as ‘passionate’ and ‘powerful’ – music with ‘spirit’; music that makes the heart beat faster and provokes thoughts to explore new ways. It is an exhibition of a heart and could be called “soul cabaret”.

What inspired you to start Cybiont?

A flow of sounds, melodies wanting to become compositions and lyrics urging to be sung.

How do you come up with your compositions?

There is usually something that triggers a new song idea. It can be a sound, an observation, a tree, a book, a thought or a philosophical moment. The song 'Hold On' was initiated by a synthesizer sound, 'Butterflies' by seeing a butterfly landing on a persons heart, 'Talking To Birds' by.. yeah... talking to quite a few. Everything got its own sound, and often a specific sound makes you feel a certain way. At times it takes a lot of work to express that with lyrics; other times you’ve got lyrics wanting to be part of a song but you can’t find the right tune. Mostly I let the music and the lyrics work and develop together.

What really inspires me to make music are all those brave enough to bring something new into this world. The small man standing up for justice, the tiny voice that dares to speak the truth, and the ones - who against all odds - continue working for what they believe is right. They touch my heart, and often that comes out as music.

What will Cybiont’s next release be?

Would love to manage to release 3 full-length albums in 1 year.

The first album 'A Trilogy of Random Thoughts and Considerations' was released June 2009, 'Angels & Demons' March 2010, and there are already a number of new compositions that qualify for the next release, preliminarily named 'Upgraded & Spiritualized'. I suspect there will be about 15 new compositions exploring some other musical spheres. There will probably be some abstract soundscapes, some weird stuff, as well as some “poppier” songs.

How do you believe Cybiont fits into the NZ music industry?

Some have said that Cybiont is singular within the national music scene and I would agree that Cybiont is probably in its own unique NZ music category.

What is in your CD collection at home?

The newest CD purchase is the album 'Pop Crimes' by Birthday Party legend Rowland S. Howard.

In the last weeks I’ve been listening a bit to Scott Walker, early Ultravox, and Tom Waits. Find that when I make music – I don't spend as much time listening to others – expect for an occasional live concert. In the CD collection you find a variety of artists; Mavis Staples, Nine Inch Nails, MONO, Nick Cave, The Three Penny Opera, Elliot Brown and more...

Who would you most like to support live?

Would love to open up for Carl Orff's master piece Carmina Burana – accompanied by the entire symphony orchestra! And the ballet troop!

What can we expect to see from Cybiont over the next year?

A number of singles, a new album and maybe even a couple of concerts. Additionally Cybiont will record and produce with a number of New Zealand upcoming artists. 

Cybiont is also looking to develop more music in collaboration with other like-minded artists which could lead to something completely different again.

What is your favourite place in NZ to be?

A good place is always where you are together with some good people but I could head into the South Island mountains any time!

Cybiont is Cybiont, Mac and OSX.

Festival organiser Jeff Fulton said the festival has grown in 2010 and gone up a level for 2010.
"It's a lunchtime kickoff again this year with an afternoon of band-related activities… performance clinics, discussion panels and the excitement which is the CHARTFEST industry expo. Our aim is to encourage, involve, entertain and inspire the next generation of not only musicians, but managers, producers, journalists, graphic designers and web developers... anyone with an interest in a career in wider music industry".

"For music fans there are plenty of incredible performances at an affordable price too" Fulton says, "the wealth of talent across the city has meant the addition of two new stages in 2010 - the City Roots Stage as well as the new Chill Stage as the CHARTDISC Volume 3 (downbeat chill) compilation is released on 1 May.

Another new innovation is the CHARTFEST Band Team Search competition in the lead up to the main event, which gives talented young creative's from around the city's high schools the chance to gain exposure and help kick start their careers in the music industry.
