Peter Jefferies Announces One-Off Show

Thursday 19th June, 2014 9:28AM

Local post-punk icon Peter Jefferies is set to play his first New Zealand headline show in more than a decade, before he heads to the States to support the re-issue of his 1994 album Electricity. Jefferies is perhaps best known for forming short-lived New Plymouth band Nocturnal Projections with his brother Graeme, Brett Jones and Gordon Rutherford in 1981 (that's Peter pictured above singing in Nocturnal Projections). Following the band's the break-up, the Jefferies brothers went on to form This Kind Of Punishment, which put out a couple of albums in the early 1980s.

Over the years Jefferies has released several independent albums, including his well-received sophomore solo record Electricity (1994) that features supporting musicianship from ongoing collaborators such as Shayne Carter and Bruce Russell. The album is now being re-released via American label Superior Viaduct, following the successful reissue of his 1990 album The Last Great Challenge in a Dull World through De Stijl last year. The label will be pressing Electricity as a double vinyl featuring compositions that never made it to the original record.

For his one-off Auckland show in July, Jefferies is performing a solo acoustic set, followed by a set from support act Little Moon. Then he will return to the stage to perform solo again, as well as with special guest Shayne Carter and with band Substatic (Salvi and Brendan from Little Moon). Here's the details...
