Goodnight Nurse - Goodnight Nurse – I Want It Tour May 2008

05 Aug 2008 // A review by JohnS
Line up

The Rabble

Streetwise Scarlet

Goodnight Nurse

What a way to spend Friday the 13, doors open at 9 but first band on at 10.20.

The Rabble

The Rabble open the night with an explosive burst of energy with a hit of total punk rock and setting the scene for the night singing along. They had a strong following on tour with them all supporting some outstanding hair. The crowd didn't take long to get fired up.

Streetwise Scarlet

Unfortunately Streetwise Scarlet was plagued with technical faults as power faults right from the first song, three songs later before they go through without a fault. The lads tried to keep the songs going through the crowd singing on with 'Let's Go' (as seen on C4 advert) but after the delays it was hard to recover. There first release will be hopefully out this August.

Goodnight Nurse

Goodnight finally hit the stage and performed without fault. Songs from older albums as well as from the new Album 'Keep Me On Your Side'. The crowd need no help with any lyrics as they sang along to 'The Night', 'I Need This' and 'Death Goes To The Disco'. A strong crowd request for the cover of 'Milkshake' excited the crowd more than a weight watchers trip to the cake factory.

Finishing the night was lead singer Joel Little's tribute to his grandfather Archie with 'Our Song'.

About Goodnight Nurse

Let's remind ourselves of the Goodnight Nurse facts:

Goodnight Nurse have had a Top 40 single in New Zealand 7 times. Their debut album Always And Never debuted at #5 on the NZ charts and went gold in its first week. The album included the hit singles Loner, My Only, Death Goes To Disco, Our Song and All For You.

Goodnight Nurse won the 2007 MTV Australia Video Music Award for NZ Viewers Choice. This sits proudly alongside their Juice TV Best Breakthrough Video and Best Rock Video Awards.

Hurricane Kids - Live It Up EP Review
11 May 2013 // by JohnS
School holidays for my family almost always involve a decent amount of time traveling via the car and I always use this time to introduce my boys to new music to expand their every growing playlists on their MP3 players. The latest EP from the Hurricane Kids looks as if it may be another enjoyable addition.
Evermore - Follow the Sun Album Review
25 Oct 2012 // by JohnS
It's a long journey to become a household name within Australasia, but Evermore have done exactly that and more. From topping the charts in 2004 with their debut album Dreams to their latest release Follow the Sun, Evermore have established themselves into the indie-rock record books.

Nervous Doll Dancing - Eidolon - Album Review
09 Sep 2012 // by JohnS
Nervous Doll Dancing is a new name to me, which came as a surprise. I consider myself to have an above average knowledge of kiwi musicians and I’m always a little taken back when I haven’t heard of someone who is this talented before.
Julie Lamb - Trippin' The Light Album Review
09 Sep 2012 // by JohnS
Blues, rock and accounting aren’t something that would normally be put together but Wellingtonian signer Julie Lamb somehow pulls this off. Her second album entitled 'Trippin’ In The Light' displays a range of talent, which is rarely found on the shelfs nowadays.
DJ Definite - From Hell to Breakfast EP Review
14 Oct 2011 // by JohnS
Former dDub bass player Brent Stathdee has got back into making beats since the duo known as Definite & Bling took a hiatus in 2007. After 3 EP’s and an album with hard funk/Rock band Hangman, DJ Definite has turned back to making beats again.

Yes, after six years The Nomad (Daimon Schwalger) has been working hard and given us 'Perilous Times', a dupstep flavoured blend or reggae, drum and bass, electronica and Jungle to create a thing of absolute bliss.

It’s hard not to pick an album and solo judge the music inside by its cover. It’s the whole basis of trying something new, Do you like the look of them, are they wearing the latest fashions or even the classic do I know that guy?
