Kyuss Support Acts Announced

Wednesday 27th April, 2011 11:45AM

Press Release:

Two supports for the New Zealand Kyuss Lives! shows have been selected by KYUSS.

Nineties Stoner rock legends handpick local supports for first New Zealand tour.

The Auckland shows will be opened by Billy TK Snr & Doug Jerebine – New Zealand’s own godfathers of psychedelic stoner rock. Billy TK Snr cut his teeth in the late 60s/early70s plying his trade-marked freaked-out-wah-wah-flavoured-fuzzzzz with local acid rockers The Human Instinct. As Jesse Harper, Doug Jerebine wrote the best songs on the first two Human Instinct albums and has spent much of the last 40 years as a monk in India translating ancient sanskrit text. His album from 1969 will be officially released by US label Drag City later this year on LP. With a powerhouse rhythm section of Miles Gilette (ex Fluf & Salad Daze) and Chris Orange (ex Terrorways of Short Haired R+R fame, and ex Features) - Billy and Doug may be in their sixties but their shows of last year had jaws dropping in awe of the psychedelic racket made by these two senior citizens. Think cranial-mashing fuzzed out guitar duelling of interplanetary proportions and you’re half way there.

Wellington’s scuzzmeisters BeastWars will open the Wellington show on Sunday 15th May. Their debut album of skull mashing rock is released in May on all popular formats including a gatefold sleeved LP.
