Press Release:

LAST TRAIN TO BROCKVILLE…SHAYNE P CARTER TRACKS BACK

A rare show by Shayne Carter and band, digging deep into his incredible back catalogue, playing songs from Straitjacket Fits and Double Happys, unleashing “Randolph’s Going Home” and maybe even Bored Games’ “Joe 90"...

What could be better? OK. You’re there.

The Last Train To Brockville. Carter and a blistering power trio featuring drummer Gary Sullivan and bassist Vaughan Williams, revisiting the canon of one of New Zealand's greatest songwriters.

A time capsule of amazing music unlocked at Wellington’s Bar Bodega on Friday 6 May and then a week later at the King’s Arms in Auckland on Saturday 14 May.

Sometimes you just have to pause and take stock. One of those moments came when Shayne’s good friend Chris Knox suffered a stroke in 2009. A benefit gig was organised and in recognition and celebration of his friend’s career, rather than play songs from a decade making music under the Dimmer moniker, Shayne and his band took it back.

“She Speeds”, “Dialling a Prayer”, “Needles And Plastic”, his musical brother Wayne Elsey’s “Some Fantasy” and more were rolled out in a passionate performance that sent shivers down the spine of 800 people in the bar.

With Carter's famed propensity for looking forward and not back, that show seemed like a one off - until now.

"I was pleasantly surprised by how well so much of that material stood up," says Carter, "Good tunes and a lot of fun to play. I'm really looking forward to busting out that stuff again."

The time is right. Two exclusive shows. Shayne P Carter, with band, and a swag of bona fide New Zealand rock classics.
