The Situations

Bio

The Situations all got together at school in 2002 evolving from a small-time posse in Rosehill, South Auckland. Thanks to some well-placed blind eyes, The Situations scored a bunch of gear on long term loan from their school. Glen was the only one of them who was even in the department, and with a hefty 32% in School Certificate, it could be argued that the gear was the entire motivation behind his enrolling in the first place. Not the music didn't course through him, I mean, he had just started one of the best pop-rock bands to never be allowed to surface during the dub years of the early-mid 2000's, but who finally got the credit they deserved in the post-A LOW HUM universe in 2006 with their infectious single 'Sister' getting huge b-net airplay and hype for their 2006 album Situations Get the Basics.

New Zealand just isn't enough, and The Situations have toured Australia with the White Stripes, released their debut album in Europe and have just returned to Aotearoa after playing outstanding shows across Europe, taking in, England, Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Italy, totalling 25 shows in 23 days. They will return to Europe later in 2008, taking their second album back to European fans, this time including France, Spain and Switzerland. And in the middle of all of this they find time to be the hand-picked band for one-time Dunedin resident and crazed pop genius Bob Cardy's Shaft project. Now that's Kudos.

Unless you're planning on a ski holiday in the Swiss Alps sometime this year, you won't have too many more cracks at seeing The Situations. We're not saying you have to go and see them, but if you don't, somewhere in a parallel universe a baby panda will cry real tears. Just so you know.
