T54 Snap Up Last BDO 2011 Slot

Christchurch's T54 have just been announced to have scored the last slot at the BDO next year. A band to watch in 2011 with their debut release on it's way, definitely get along early and check them out.

Press Release:

After a nationwide search conducted through Bnet stations and the Groove Guide, the BIG DAY OUT has found its final band for the line-up to appear at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on Friday 21 January.

“Applying a little feng shui voodoo to some strictly home-made scientific principles of what would balance out a Big Day Out line-up encompassing the visceral roar of Iggy and The Stooges, the neo-hippy shake of Ed Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and the masked avenger destructo rave-up of The Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77, we felt that a band from Christchurch named after a Soviet era tank would fit the fourth corner perfectly,” claimed Big Day Out promoter Campbell Smith.

And so it is that Smith announced T54, a noisy three piece from Christchurch influenced by classic New Zealand bands who also have three members (The Clean) or numbers in their name (The 3Ds) plus all the cool indie bands you can think of, as the last band added to the bill.

T54 have recently recorded their debut EP Drone Attacks with Dale Cotton in Dunedin for upcoming release on the Goldsounds label and are undoubtedly one of the most exciting new guitar bands in the country.
