Wild Things

Part-inspired by the tougher sound of The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Yardbirds, and the Pretty Things, a feedback-drenched, and fuzz-box powered youth movement erupted throughout the nation. There was no careerist aspirations, government grants, or talk of export commodities - this scene was about the wild abandon of the music and liberation from the staid, dreary everyday life in a former colonial outpost.

Be warned! This is no safe nostalgia show. These intense, groundbreaking bands will sonically recreate the heady, sweaty halcyon atmosphere of the kind of clubs found circa 1967 - places like the Galaxie (AK nitespot), The Stage Door (Christchurch), and The Thumpin Tum (Melbourne nitespot). No "new" songs, no concession to the passing of time, and no rose-tinted, misty eyed retro �" just pure, unrestrained, maximum R&B, the way the establishment didn't want it played.

Hear what revisionist history has tried to obscure - the real sound of the 60s underground!
