Album Preview: Coolies - Master

Tuesday 21st September, 2010 10:27PM

We seem to be saying “long awaited” a lot at the moment with regards to newly released albums, it’s not that we think albums are things to be rushed rather they seem to sit around finished, or close to it, for so long before they actually get unleashed.

And few albums have been around as long as Coolies new album Master, some four years in the making with half (well 2/3 to be completely accurate) of the band unaware of it’s existence for the most part, it’s finally seeing the light of day next Monday 27th September.

In anticipation of the release we have put together a sneak preview for you, we asked the band to select a bunch of tracks from the album and to tell us a bit about them – the Coolies being Coolies, here’s what they had to say….

“LETS PRETEND”
Create, believe in yourself, that’s what he did, friends till the end, we are friends until the end, we will never forget you………goodbye goodbye goodbye – lets pretend .

“GHOST BABY”
THIS IS WHAT WE WANT WHEN ARE WE GONNA GET IT
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

“SHIFT”
This song is our song this is our song……
Stefan would have recorded this at ambassador on his reel to reel, this was the only time we played this song not before that or ever again after. Totally wired!

“PULL THE TRIGGER”
We love crass what can I say ….oi oi oi

“SEARCHING”
Who are we? I dunno. But what the hell is this.

And we picked “HOLIDAY” cause, well we liked it!

So here you go, a preview from Master, the “long awaited” second album from legendary Auckland punk band the Coolies – go see them live, dates below.
