Unplugged @ Diablo singer/songwriter comp this Tues 25/09.
Posted: Sat Sep 22, 2007 9:24 am
Mel and I doing an unplugged set as part of the annual Diablo Singer/Songwriter competition.
Diablo, 43 Ponsonby Road.

Don't miss this gig cause its only once in a blue moon we get to do unplugged shows and with Matt back soon will be back on the full band, plugged in circuit...

NO DOOR CHARGE ... Would post links thru to the competitors myspaces but only three of em appear to have myspaces and they're personal, not band pages. (yes thats right 3 competitors- 7 acts on that night- the beauty of gigging without drummers - very quick changeovers) Mr Green
Doors open 8.30pm.

Update...
Posted: Sun May 6, 2007 11:05 am
Well past time for one but anyway...
We're back gigging very soon as a full band with a gig @ The Masonic 25 May.
Other acts on the bill The Cigarette Widows and one more (T.B.C) band.

More info as it comes to hand as well as on some gigs for June and July... Finally we'll be hitting the Waikato SOON!!

Also we're recording a 'Live, Unplugged in the studio' EP next week- Tentatively entitled 'Ambigram' it'll be available for download to only members of our "ISHTAR ARMY' myspace group as a giveaway.
Long story short Mel and I did an unplugged set at Chloe from Puppet's going away party in March... It was supposed to be recorded but we think the engineer hit play instead of record or something ... we figured it'd be cool to recreate the gig as a giveaway but are also planning a few tracks with the whole band... Once up for download for a few weeks we'll 'Unhide' the page and make it available for people to listen only.

Also check out the Muzic.net profile, just added some new pictures.

Hey everyone.......... random stuff
Posted: Mon Jul 3, 2006 12:57 pm
Sorry to anyone on the forum I might have been chatting with last time I was here, am aware I've cut out of a few forum threads in a few sites recently. Generally a combination of flu (4 weeks and counting) a very cold study at home and just coming home from work and mostly sleeping a lot.
Thought I should drop by just to let people know we haven't disappeared entirely and update some stuff.
The EP is currently waiting to be mixed and mastered. We laid down the final tracks a few weeks back. Generally it is sounding real good if I can say that about my own band? I reckon I've butchered one of the solos cause I just couldn't get into the headspace of the song, couldn't hear what it was trying to tell me it needed , if that kinda makes sense... decided it was ok to go out anyway. Other than that alls cool. 'Temple of Ishtar' is sounding suitably epic and its cool listening to the rough mixes and comparing how different Mel sounds from one song to the next. Huge thanks to Andrew for getting the bass done before he took off.
Been working with Jamie, our new bassist. He's picking up the songs really quickly. we're all loving having him back in the band.
We've picked up a new manager and are hoping to have some announcement about something soon. something at the moment we wanna keep real secret.....................
And speaking of secret.............................. AUGUST 19, we've got something happening. Still some details pending so no official announcement yet... However keep the evening free if you are in Auckland.

In this months issue of Missing Link....
Posted: Wed Feb 1, 2006 1:36 pm
Check out the february (vol 3) issue of Missing link, not just cause it is a cool magazine (its aim: to make this magazine the missing link between the band, the labels, and rock fans by providing the most informative rock resource in New Zealand.- Definitely a cool thing) but cause they are reviewing The Enemy Within, something we're stoked about!

Both are great songs but I prefer the acoustic one. All the band members are obviously extremely good musicians which is nice to hear.
Is either song on the radio yet?
