Electric Temples July 2020

ELECTRIC TEMPLES & DELTA STOREY

SATURDAY 4 JULY | FREE ENTRY

Shannyn hasn't been the same since a rather rambunctious German sparkle dance party in the weekend. Unfortunately he has started to believe that all cats are plotting against us. He is quite fortunate that he himself does not live with a cat. However, he has become suspicious about their tendency to sleep all day and is questioning what they get up to when they are outside.
In his own words, "It's like the lion king Davey boy. They don't just punch you off a cliff and call it a day. They prolong it and savour it."
He was caught in conversation with Andre yesterday stating "Cats paw, bite, claw and scratch their owners as target practice. This is for when push comes to shove and they finally have the opportunity to strike us in our sleep. They will be well rested and calculating. They will not miss."
Andre asked Jack for his opinion on the subject and he replied that "Maybe that's why cats don't get on with mice, birds or dogs..... Those animals are onto the cats"
This just perpetuated the problem.
The crew tried to track down Gareth Morgan and his crew for emotional support but he was nowhere to be found. We talked to some jazz cats but all we got from them was "Yeah man" and "In the pocket".
Michael and David continued to look for external help and met up with Aaron Caldwell and his band Delta Storey. Aaron suggested that their leader is another famous musician who changed his name to hide his identity.
"He is subtle in his lyricism, he says things like 'ooo baby it's a wild world" and convincing his listeners to distract themselves by saying 'It's not time to make a change, just relax, take it easy"
With a moment of clarity Peter, Delta Storey's drummer, insisted we all head down to Wunderbar to play the gig of our lives and raise awareness of this ever-increasing problem.

"The seasonal mulled wine outta sort these boys out" suggested David to Michael.

Come join and give them the support they need to get them back on their feet. It'll be a free entry!

Tim Allen LR

TIM ALLEN: THE LAST BASTION OF A LAD TOUR

THURSDAY 16 JULY | TICKETS FROM $7

The Last Bastion of a Lad. Now THAT’s a rock’n’roll title for an album. Say it in a Lancashire accent, with its resounding assonance and pithy plosives, and it truly sums up Tim Allen’s geographical and psychological journey thus far.
It’s an album title that connotes an easing up on the wild life, putting one’s larrikin ways to bed, growing up.
This sophomore song collection runs the gamut of life experiences; from the loss of a loved one, ‘Joan Don’t Go’ to the rollicking but wrenching feeling of displacement in ‘Different Shore’ to being diagnosed with adult ADHD, ‘Won’t Let You Win’, this UK born Auckland based singer-songwriter is reassessing his life as he lays it bare, dressing it in firmly rooted Brit-pop leanings with a smattering of kiwi spit and polish.
Produced by Ben King and engineered by both King and Nick Abbott, The Last Bastion Of a Lad features some of New Zealand’s finest musicians including Ben King (Goldenhorse), Milan Borich (Pluto), Matthias Jordan (Pluto, Night choir), plus appearances by Dominic Blaazer, Toni Randle (Eyreton Hall) and Callum Passells.
Tim's The Last Bastion of a Lad U.K tour was set to go ahead next month before Tim headed to France and returned to N.Z. via Asia for a string of dates, but unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tim's U.K tour has been postponed until further notice.
The Last Bastion of a Lad is now available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and all good digital sites.
Support acts from James Constable and Madeleine Howard.
Praise for Tim's new album:
"This album is set to receive critical acclaim, and deservedly so." **** Muzic.net.nz
"His music reminds us of Oasis, Blur, David Gray. This is an album that grew on me pretty quickly, being packed with evidence of life experiences." ambientlightblog.com
