Gig & Concert News - Celine to support Mogwai in Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau

Celine to support Mogwai in Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau

09 February 2024 - 0 Comments

Shoegaze/noise-rock trio Celine are thrilled to announce that they are supporting Scottish avant-rock soundscapers Mogwai at their Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau Powerstation show on Friday 1st March (presented by Solid Entertainment).

As Under the Radar says, "originally led by Rob Lundon and Andrew Moon, Celine's lineage threads through Aotearoa's vibrant 90's noise / free music community and even earlier — Moon was drummer for legendary 80's Flying Nunsters Goblin Mix, and Lundon's projects included noiseniks Pit Viper (namechecked on the latest Guardian Singles album)."


In their initial incarnation, Darren Binder joined on bass, who was later replaced by Rachael King (Cakekitchen). Celine became part of the scene of alternative, like-minded rock groups, supporting local luminaries Bailterspace and The 3Ds, and international touring acts Pavement and The Lemonheads.

The band re-grouped in 2019 to record new music, collaborating with guitarist David H H Coventry. Following their debut 2022 EP, The Last Days of Evolution, Celine will soon release a new self-titled vinyl EP mixed by New York based engineer Andrew Schneider, and mastered by Bob Weston in Chicago.

The recordings reflect the band’s shared love of outsider melancholic pop, 90’s noise rock and golden era Flying Nun, and pairs their signature noisy pop songcraft with exacting sonic heft, played with conviction at amplifier-worship volume.

Celine has also returned to the local live scene, with original member Rob Lundon and two new members, bassist Kirsten Smith and drummer Marty Doo (Glide).
