The TimeLiners tour in April 2018 has Neil Worboys, Maurice Priestley and Stephen Carlyle taking a ‘plugged acoustic rootsy bluesy trio’ version of previous incarnations of the ‘…liner’ lineage, so-to-speak on a clock-wise time-warp of the North Island of Aotearoa through the month of April 2018 revisiting echoes of the last 50 years.
Neil, Maurice and Stephen have been playing the blues together on and off since 1987 when they were all living in Gisborne.
Neil had formed Bulldogs All-star Goodtime Band at Wellington Teachers Training College in the early 1970s. That band went on to win the TV talent show New Faces, had some chart success with ‘Miss September’ and ‘Everyone Knows’, and tour professionally in the mid-70s.
Maurice Priestley was operating a recording studio and music production business in Gisborne through the ‘80s and was already playing music with his brother-in-law Stephen Carlyle in a variety of bands and settings. Neil, Maurice and Stephen came together in The Customliners with other Gissy musos, the first of a series of …liner bands.
Neil returned to Wellington in 1993 and when Maurice moved to Wellington in 2000, they collaborated on a project to record Neil’s songs and formed Neil Worboys and the Real Time Liners. The CD album ‘Some Day Soon’ was released in 2008. Stephen also moved to Wellington about that time and joined the Real Time Liner band post-recording project on bass.
The TimeLiners’ repertoire is material from various recording projects, newer songs from Neil and his cohorts and examples of the music that inspired group to start playing and creating their own material.
