I went to a great, low-key gig at Queens on Saturday where Kilmog, Salad Boys and Transistors played. I walked in while Kilmog were playing 'why the fuck are you here!?' - a brief existential crisis ensued.
Ian Henderson (who runs Fishrider Records) linked me to an interesting article that was oddly related to my feature in this week's Critic. Check out the article on the Japanese indie music scene here.
When I interviewed Otago's Music HoD and The Verlaines frontman, Graeme Downes, he raved on about the Pixies. I play the band's song 'Caribou' on repeat!
