Foamy Ed


Foamy Ed are an Auckland all girl four-piece that have received impressive reviews & recognition since forming in 1996.

Foamy Ed have toured both the North and South Island relentlessly, playing with a wide variety of bands at a number of various venues.

The band recently released their highly anticipated EP 'A Moments Need', which is a well-developed progression from their debut EP 'Go Where U Know'. Their songs are catchy & powerful with a definite hard edge, and they have an energetic stage presence not to be missed. Foamy Ed have risen to become one of the highest-profile genre bands in NZ and continue to expand their fan base nationwide.

Their songs are tight, thrashy and fast, although they have a definite hard edge, their prolific use of harmonies and powerful riffs means they still remain emotive & melodic.

Evident in their visual stage presence, as well as their songs, these girls are well stocked and bursting with energy!

Foamy Ed have opened at the Big Day Out twice, and performed with Blink 182, Pennywise, The Vandals, Five Iron Frenzy, 28 Days, The 5,6,7,8's, Plain Sunset, HLAH, The Feelers, Fur Patrol, Sommerset, Kitsch, Tadpole and many more.

More recently on TV2's Space Foamy Ed took out the first round of Launchpad, a competition for bands. The prize was a $10,000 video contract, giving them the chance to making a music video of a single of their choice. The result was a cool video for 'Overload'.

Lani also peforms with Elemeno P.

Band Members:
Katherine Millar (drums, vocals)
Fleur Parker (vocals)
Mieke Van Der Walle (guitar)
Aimee Banks (guitar)
Lani Purkis (bass, vocals)

"Hi All,

We have received a video grant – YAY! for our new upcoming single ‘Exhale’.

We are shooting it on Sunday the 20th February and were wondering whether there are any girls who would be interested and available to be extras in it (it will have girls only featured in the video).

If you or any girls you know would be available please email us back asap. We would really appreciate it! We will provide snacks, beer and wine and would only need you for a couple of hours from noon.

We will email you further details if you can make it.

I got the chance to see three Foamy Ed gigs on consecutive nights recently. Whilst listening to pretty much the same set night after night can be a tad boring, in this case that's about as far from the truth as you can go. Whether it was intentional or not, their were subtle changes in riff's each night which kept the crowd interested. Lani and Meike have awesome stage presence together and compliment the artistry of Kat and the power of Fleur's voice. Whilst the bands that supported them (except for 4 Man Bob) were, at best ordinary, FE stole the show each night with their energy and awesome stage presence. Why the hell won't anyone pick them up for their label ?
Their are a hell of a lot of bands out their with less talent who have a label.

Foamy Ed Video Debut
Posted: Fri May 30, 2003 9:04 am
Foamy Ed's NEW video debuts on Space this Friday 30 May - TV2 @ 10:30pm!

Winners of the first round of Launchpad, Foamy Ed shot their debut music video last weekend. You may remember that the girls were voted by the public as winners of the Coke/Space music scheme in March.

The weather held and the video was shot in an industrial estate in inner city Auckland. All went as planned with the exception of Jack, the ring in cat belonging to Jo Tuapawa of Space fame, scratching a band member and then legging it when he was most needed.

The video was directed by Mitchell Hawkes, director of the Garageland videos 'Gone' and 'Life Is So Sweet', the Stephen Malkmus video 'Death To The Maiden' and music TV specials such as the Flying Nun story and the BNet Awards. It was produced by Hayley Cunningham who has also worked on videos by Garageland, The Video Kid, Ramekin and Sommerset.

The video for 'Overload' will debut on Space this Friday night. Don't miss it.

Round Two winners of Launchpad are Bolbox Rex and round three is currently open.

Check out http://www.coke.co.nz/ and the muzic.net.nz forums for more details.

Space will be debuting Foamy Ed's brand spanking new video for the track 'Overload' on 30 May and promotion has gone really well for the band this month, with them popping on radio stations for live-to-airs and interviews all over the place. They've even managed to get on the next NZ On Air Indie Hit Disc.
