Album Review: The Nudge - Big Nudge Pie

Tuesday 30th August, 2011 10:38AM

The Nudge have been steadily building their reputation as one of New Zealand’s finest and most exciting live acts for a few years now. The three mad men behind The Nudge are Ryan "Treble" Prebble (guitar, vocals), James "Clip-On" Coyle (drums), and Iraia "Cackles" Whakamoe (keyboards). They can often be found bedecked in animal suits and rocking out like lunatics across the country. Their propulsive live performances have stood toe-to-toe with the likes of Trinity Roots, Kora, and Little Bushman without breaking a sweat. The band has just released Bug Nudge Pie, a record that blends the disparate influences and ideas of the three individual members. The songs on Big Nudge Pie range from blessed-out swampy jams (‘Shook Me’), to strident rockers and twitchy blues rambles (‘In My Olds House’). There really is something for everybody in here.
