Interview: Connan Mockasin

Friday 26th March, 2010 11:33AM

Connan Hosford has been making a name for himself for nearly a decade in New Zealand. Being feted by the likes of Fat Boy Slim, Lawrence Arabia and Liam Finn might sound impressive and eclectic for the NZ guitar hero, but it has taken a while for him to record and release his debut album Please Turn Me Into the Snat. He's currently based in London, and has ditched his former band the Mockasins. Despite keeping the old name in part, his music has shifted considerably - to almost unclassifiable genres. It's part psychedelic, part blues, part prog. Whatever it is, it is part pretty damn awesome. It's also the best chance to see him perform live given his current New Zealand mini-tour which culminates in Auckland on 27 March.

Connan wraps up his album release tour tomorrow night (Sat 27th March) in Auckland at the Monte Cristo Room with support from Dear Time's Waste. Definetly get along.
