PUNK IT UP

Auckland's semi-regular premier punk rock'n'roll event is returning on 25 May 2019!

After making a decision to return to Auckland's real punk roots, Punk It Up will be hosted in the same building that housed the infamous Zwines Niteclub back in the day.

Not only that, two of the bands specially reforming for this May's party, actually played their first gigs at Zwines almost 40 years to the day!

Featuring The Spelling Mistakes, Proud Scum, Newmatics, BankRobbers, The Bombers and more, this is a once in a lifetime chance to see good friends from the past, meet new ones for the future, and indulge in the best punk rock n roll shindig this side of the black stump!

Punk It Up has always been a festival for the people, by the people, so there will be a plethora of conversation downstairs (in the old Babes Disco location), as the townsfolk gather around the many booths selling their wares of records, t-shirts, and other merchandise, whilst the sages of the modern times will be at the information tables, offering kindred spirited advice about real-world problems and the solutions to them that their organizations provide

The Jester's clan will be in full force, known in contemporary circles nowadays as 'DJs', with the almighty and holy crew of Dubhead, Miss Dom, Wastemaster, Phil A, Lise, Dean M, and a whole bunch more, not only providing fun times between the minstrels sets, but also at the After Party that is set to take the Kiwi punk tribe well into the wee small hours.

Tickets are now available at the new-fangled internet thing called the web via Under The Radar.

FROM THE PIT EXHIBITION

From The Pit is a curated exhibition of New Zealand music photography, featuring images of New Zealand musicians captured by some of the best music photographers in the country. The exhibition is on display from 02 May onwards during NZ Music Month at Flying Out and available now at the Q Theatre in Auckland.

Reuben Raj (Radio 13/SomeBizarreMonkey) and Dave Simpson ( Getty Images/UnderTheRadar) got together in mid-2018 with a mission to promote music photography in New Zealand. With support from Independent Music New Zealand and the New Zealand Music Commission , a print exhibition called From The Pit curated by both Dave and Reuben was launched at the 2019 Taite Music Awards on 16 April.

Dozens of photographers end up ‘in the pit’ at music venues up and down the country each week, capturing images of New Zealand's vibrant music scene. It's a difficult and unpredictable environment to work in, but these photographers work tirelessly to capture the magic they see before them.

Part artists, part historians, but all music fans, they strive to take the perfect photo, which reflects how it felt to be at the concert and communicates the excitement of a live music event.

The full print exhibition features the work of the following photographers and runs throughout NZ Music Month (May 2019) at the Flying Out record store on Pitt Street in Auckland. Many of the images are available for purchase.

CITY OF SOULS

Over the years, City of Souls have carved their name deep into the alternative rock scene of Aotearoa, topping national charts and opening for countless international acts. With new music in the works, and a countrywide tour mapped out, the six-man band are certainly showing no signs of slowing.

Right before opening for alternative-metal giants Sevendust, guitarist Marcus Powell took some time out to yarn with Muzic.net.nz's Paul T Gheist about City of Souls' best show to date, the future of alternative-rock in Aotearoa, and shared some morsels of info on new City of Souls music - Read on!

First round's on me - What will you be having?

Jameson on the rocks!

Sum up City of Souls in five words or less - Go!

Auckland City Night Music.

How did the name City of Souls come about? Was it from a film or inspired by a book?

It came from an Indian poem. Steve found it one of those spiritual quote books and found this cool poem talking about how after you die, you go to the heavens, the "city of souls", which is as bright as 10,000 lanterns.

What's the most memorable show you guys have played so far?

Opening for Bring Me the Horizon was pretty epic. It was a real test for us to see if we could stand next to an international act and we did. The crowd response was just as epic!

What is the song Wolf about? What inspired the lyrics and the music?

Richie: For me, the lyrics came from struggling with fear, controlling my actions, and having fear become a self-fulfilling prophecy; about feeding into that cycle. The wolf you feed is the one that grows, so you need to try and be aware of what's real and what you design for yourself, or you'll only find regret and death. Keep your eye on the wolf!

As a New Zealand rock/metal supergroup, have you felt pressure or experienced expectations to make City of Souls sound a particular way?

No, I haven't experienced external pressure. We put a lot of focus and expectations on ourselves to improve and evolve but not pressure. We take our craft very seriously and maintain a high level of rehearsal and technical improvements. Always learning from overseas acts and continuing to strive for the next level.

Where do you see the alt-rock/alt-metal scene in Aotearoa heading?

There has been an increase in exposure for bands in this current scene and the quality is outstanding. I hope to see it grow and push the mainstream media platforms to support more local acts in this way. We're not the only band heading offshore so I have no doubt the scene will come full circle again.

HUNT THE WITCH

Auckland rock quartet Hunt the Witch have been kicking around the Aotearoa stoner rock/metal scene since 2013, now with one EP down, and a heavy handful of riff-filled singles the guys have a debut LP ready to light on 17th May. Paul T Gheist from Muzic.net.nz had the honour of chatting to guitarist Bevan Carbines and drummer Jason Peters about songwriting, the Kings Arms, and of course, what to expect of their debut full-length release.

First round’s on me - What’ll you be having?

Bevan: Whisky or wine.

Jason: A quality Otago pinot noir or a cheeky lager.

Five words to sum up the sound and style of Hunt the Witch - Go!

Bevan: Sludgy, sonic, melodic, heavy and loud.

What’s Hunt the Witch’s newest single Day Trip to Hell based on? What inspired you to write it?

Bevan: For me, I wrote the riffs and structure a number of years back and it finally found its place in Hunt the Witch, so to see some old ideas not be wasted is a nice thing.

Jason: For the verses the drum pattern is inspired by {Shihad}'s Tom Larkin's Churn era beats, and the chorus has a fluid and open Deftones-vibe. It's a fun track to play on, grunty and straight to the point plus some sweet soaring vocals by Sam in the choruses.

Run us through the recording and mixing process of your debut album Strange Gods - Where was it recorded, how long did it take and who was involved?

Bevan: It was recorded and mixed at The Lab by Olly Harmer. It started a while back in March 2017, we recorded three songs; Afterburner, City of Lights and Thrown to the Wolves while Anthony was still in the band. Fast forward to July 2018 and we finished off the other songs with Jason Clarke on bass who has since also left the band (on great terms, may I say), so it's taken a while, but we have fully self-funded the Album and good, original things do take time. Olly was great to work with as he's really laid-back and knew exactly the sound we wanted.

Jason: We went in to the sessions making sure the tracks were very well rehearsed prior, we pretty much tracked the drums, bass and main guitars down live in one to two takes. We have great performances and wanted to retain a raw, live, vibe which is closer to our live sound and we didn't want to have it too processed or cut to shreds in the computer. Olly got what we were trying to achieve straight off and was very good at dialling in the sounds quickly and consistently. He’s laid-back like us, so everything flowed very nicely. It was a fun and productive process all round.

What’s the best piece of musical advice you’ve ever been given?

Bevan: Obviously this isn't personal advice, but it's always resonated with me. Kurt Cobain said “Punk rock should mean freedom, liking and excepting anything that you like. Playing whatever you want, as sloppy as you want, as long as it's good and it has passion.”

Jason: Never play what you think your audience wants. Write and play for yourselves first with passion and conviction and then it will always come across as real and authentic.

Care to comment on the current state of New Zealand hard rock/heavy metal? Where do you see it headed in the next five years?

Bevan: It’s a really hard road and takes a lot of resilience and determination to keep going and it helps to focus on the people who encourage you. There are some great new bands out there, but the lack of suitable venues is becoming - and will continue to be - a big problem.

Jason: It’s changed considerably since my first go at it in the 90’s with {Pumpkinhead}. Now social media and technology play a big part in building your audience which can be quite a challenge at times. Add to the mix streaming over physical products and it can be quite difficult to be heard amongst the plethora of bands now available in the digital universe. Nothing beats getting out there and playing live and networking with your peers to build a healthy music scene though, where it’s all about supporting one another to build a collective of great local rock bands for audiences here AND internationally to enjoy.

SEAN BODLEY

Sean Bodley is a solo instrumental guitarist, and a former member of Tauranga act The Eternal Sea. Jeremy from Muzic.net.nz caught up with him recently to talk about his new album, guitar heroes and his future plans. Here's what was said:


You’ve recently released the new single Brace For Impact from your forthcoming album I Am Human, what can fans expect from the rest of the album?


I think Brace For Impact has shocked a few people. It’s quite a departure from what I’m known for, less organic and more of a processed/electronic sound. I think the album as a whole leans a little more to that kind of music. Still some more mainstream, straight ahead Rock-type guitar songs, but mixed in with tracks that focus heavily on ‘electronic’ rather than ‘organic’ tones.

The artwork for I Am Human is very striking, how did the cover come about and what was the thought process or artistic direction behind it?

I had the idea for I Am Human a couple of years ago, back when I first started my Genesis album. I knew after doing an album with a drummer, bassist, keyboard player etc. that I wanted to go the complete opposite direction. Drum loops, synths, heavy editing, and I guess more clinical guitar tones.

The concept is basically that the album is all electronic and digital, except for me. I guess it’s saying, this album is 99% digital technology, but then I am the guitar, and, I Am Human.

The artwork originally had me on the cover, but I decided once the music started coming together, that I needed a ‘face’ for the album, something to represent the digital aspects of the sound while still looking somewhat human.

Instrumental guitar albums don’t come around too often, are there any challenges you face when writing or releasing music solely focused around instrumentation, opposed to traditional song writing with vocals?

Well firstly, the idea of an ‘album’ is a big decision in itself. Do people listen to entire albums anymore?

In this Spotify generation it seems everything is consumed as single tracks etc. by the younger generation, but to me, an album is like a story… a beginning, chapters and an ending, so right away I’m showing my age and possibly alienating the younger fan base!

The next step to overcome is what I call the ‘3 minute attention span’. You know the drill; radio songs must be 3 minutes long, verse, chorus, verse etc. etc. and my music just doesn’t conform to that template. On this album there are a couple of 7 min songs, a few are 6 minutes etc. so I struggle to get my story told in 3 minutes.

Finally, the biggest hurdle, (and I come across this in about 90% of the reviews I read), is the fact that I enjoy playing melodies, so if there was a vocalist on the album, I’d be back to playing chords with the odd solo. As I get older I think I understand more that people expect lyrics in songs, but I’ve grown up loving orchestral music, soundtracks, etc. I don’t think you need a singer to have a great song, and it’s nice to have variation, but who knows, I might try singing on a track one day!

Who are some of your personal guitar heroes?

I used to feel really uncomfortable being compared to Joe Satriani, to the point where I stopped using my Satriani guitars for a few years to try and distance myself from that comparison; now I just take it as a compliment. I can hear his influence in some of my playing for sure, but when I listen to Joe, I hear more things I can’t do, than those I can. I got to meet him a couple of months ago and have a chat; it was quite surreal!

Steve Vai and John Petrucci are two other guitarists that have inspired me over the years, but I love lots of guitarists. From the obvious Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler, David Gilmour & Jimmy Page, to maybe the not so obvious, lately I’ve really started to get into Jake Kiszka (Greta Van Fleet); I really love his tone and feel!

And I can’t forget my guitar teacher, Terry Varhalamas; he pushed me hard to learn, even though at times I thought I knew it all, he always knew more!

I Am Human not only features great guitar playing, but also some great Synthesizer parts, did you produce and track everything yourself and what’s involved in your typical recording process?

Thanks, I’m playing everything myself. Synth parts aren’t too hard; I can play basic chords etc. and I enjoy the layering process. There’s a track on the album that has a full on piano part in it. I have some friends who are great pianists, but I wanted to do this myself, so I’d record the chords and then overdub the melody etc. and built it up until it sounded like someone playing piano; sadly, I can’t play the part for real!

I’m a big fan of creating layers for the melody to sit on. Music Theory can be so valuable for this. When you’re doing 12 or so tracks on an album, it can become hard for the listener if you use the same ideas on each track. Power chords are great, but they don’t tend to lend themselves to promoting scales and modes in the solos and melodies, so sometimes you have to take a complex chord and break it down and spread it over multiple instruments. I learnt this from my High School music teacher when I was 13/14. She would make 3 of us sit in a group with guitars, one of us would play a C note, the other an E and the next a G, so as individuals we were playing notes, but together we were playing a chord; it’s a really powerful concept.

SOPHIE MASHLAN

19-year-old Sophie Mashlan's incredible debut album Perfect Disaster is about to be released with Sophie heading out on a 9-date tour around the country starting in Auckland on 23 April and finishing up in Dunedin on 19 May.

Paul T Gheist from Muzic.net.nz had a chance to ask Sophie a few questions - here's what she had to say:

First round’s on me – What’ll you be having?

A mojito!

You’ve performed live on bFM and Radio New Zealand, opened for Donavon Frankenreiter and Vance Joy and countless shows – What set you off? How did all of this get started?

Honestly, I'm not quite sure, I just started putting on my own shows and organising tours and the interest kinda sparked from there. I could go back through every step to figure it out, but it would take far too long and it's not that interesting.

Care to run us through your songwriting process? What goes into a Sophie Mashlan tune?

I usually start with a guitar idea, like the guitar part that will come predominantly into the song (17 days for example) and then start writing melodies and the lyrics come last. Sometimes lyrics come first though. But not often, since I need to understand what the song is musically about before I can consider what it's going to be about.

Name five of your biggest musical influences.

Dolly Parton, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Sia, Regina Spektor

You’ve said before that your songs are based on feelings and experiences; what else inspires you to write?

The constant fear of growing old without achieving my goals. But no, seriously, I've only written like two songs that weren't about something I've gone through or felt. I feel like they wouldn't sound convincing coming from me if I don't have a connection to my own music.

What inspired you to write your debut single Let You Down?

It's about the weird way people treat their romantic partners these days. Like everyone is so obsessed with having the most Instagram worthy boyfriend or whatever that they get into these weird empty relationships. Like they don't have anything in common with their partner apart from both being attractive. Why do people do that? It's so weird. And these people, they're always trying to upgrade, or get with the next best thing, and it's all just so fake and can't truly be fulfilling. So, Let You Down was written from the perspective of one of these people, and the way it must feel to do that kind of thing.

What changes in the New Zealand folk music scene do you hope to see in the next three to five years?

I mean, it's hard to say. I'm not really the purest form of folk, and I know it bothers the folk purists in the scene that I call myself that. So, I just hope in the next few years we can properly acknowledge that folk is constantly evolving and that it's more than having a fiddle in every song. It'd be cool to get more young people involved too, at the festivals, at the events, supporting the great music coming out of the scene. My friend Finn McLennan-Elliott is leading this kind of change I think, he's heavily involved in the Auckland Folk Festival and the scene in general and over the past few years, he's been making it cool to like folk.

THE STUNGRENADES

Punk rock band The Stungrenades are on fire at the moment having released their latest album Class War: Fight Back! in 2017. These New Plymouth based punk rockers are not afraid to tell you how it is. Kerry from Muzic.net.nz spoke to Craig, the mastermind who founded The Stungrenades. Craig has been extremely busy within the punk rock scene for years and it seems there's no stopping for them!

I'm aware that you have been involved in bands for years now, how many bands have you been involved with? And how did The Stungrenades come about?

My first attempt at a band was in 1997 at Taradale High School, playing Nirvana covers. We never really did anything except try to play along to the songs, I had been taking informal drum lessons with a dude around the corner from home. It wasn’t until I moved to New Plymouth in 2000 that I started being in bands that were writing our own songs and using whatever methods were available to record demos and stuff. I had played some house parties with bands, but my first proper PPP (Pub, Posters and P.A) gig was as the Drummer for Fusion Inc who became the Evil Dead Crew opening for Flesh D-Vice at the Red Room in the White Hart Hotel, an iconic New Plymouth venue. Off the top of my head, I think The Stungrenades is my 13th band that’s managed to get out of the practice room. A lot of those have been with my mate Von Toxic, and include {Horror Story}, {Nekrotika} and {Dead City Rockers}.

In 2013, an old band of mine Shut The Hell Up! Played a reunion show after a 3-year hiatus, opening for The Hard On's from Australia, it was great being onstage again playing Punk Rock music, but I wasn’t sure rehashing an old band was the way to go forward. I met T-Boner around that time, and we started just making noise in my garage, him on guitar and myself on drums, playing some Stooges and Misfits songs to get a feel for things, we got a demo down of a few original songs that we had been working on, shorter and faster than the STHU! Type of punk that we were playing at the time. A couple of drummers jammed with us, but it never felt right until I convinced Cam from {Three Ugly Shmucks} to join us, which was a double stroke of luck, because I had told our STHU! Bass player Scotty (Also from Three Ugly Shmucks) that there was always a spot for him in The Stungrenades, as I like his style of playing, and he’s a great dude to be around as well. With Cam on board, Scotty joined in as well. We were never in a hurry to get this band going, it was good being able to do it at our own pace and on our own terms. We chucked together a demo called Give Us a Hoon which has most of the songs found on our first album Front Toward Enemy.

Who are your influences? Who are you inspired by?

Again, we are unashamedly a Punk Rock band. We all listen to and like a lot of different music, but we narrowed down what The Stungrenades is and we do our thing. There’s still a lot of bands in New Plymouth playing punk, metal, rock and all the other genres out there, which is cool. {Hateseeker}, {Souls of Hades} and {80 Grit} are doing quite well, and we have all been friends and band mates for years so it’s good that there’s still a scene here. It’s nowhere near what it used to be though, and that comes down to a number of factors, the next generation not getting into live original music, the older generation of punk and metal fans are moving on with their lives if they make it, as a lot of them haven’t. Nostalgia is all well and good, and I appreciate it more as I get older, but we are about the here and now. One important life lesson I’ve learnt is that nothing lasts forever. Enjoy what you have at the time, with the people you are with, because it can all change. Band mates die, venues close, bands break up, albums never get released. Longevity teaches us this, so we just do what we can, while we do it.

What's coming up for The Stungrenades in the future?

We have 5 songs for a new album, when that comes out, I don’t know, but we aren’t in a rush. The CD versions of our first two albums have nearly sold out, so any re-releases will be both albums on one CD as I believe in giving good value for money. We don’t do deluxe editions with extra songs or anything like that. There is a lot of competition for people's money from all angles, so if someone can spare 10 or 15 bucks on one of our CD’s I’d like to think I am giving them good value for that money. As for immediate plans? We are just going to keep doing what we are doing, in our own time and on our own terms
