Gig Information

On Tuesday 12th February, the Jam Factory will be hosting Hamish Kilgour fresh from New York City on his New Zealand Finklestein tour - supported by local fame duo Ed Gains and Luke Turner.
Kilgour ,notable for founding The Clean along with his brother David in 1978 moved to New York City and formed The Mad Scene in the early 1990s.

An imaginary kingdom, a man with golden ears and a cast of plenty feature in the latest solo work from Hamish Kilgour of The Clean.
Finklestein is the soundtrack to a story that was going to be written for Hamish Kilgour’s 12-year-old son Taran. It's about a mythical kingdom that has run out of gold - what will they do?

Kilgour never got around to writing the story itself, but the album evolved over a year at Marlborough Farms, the basement studio of his friend Gary Olson, a Brooklyn born-and-raised engineer and producer (and lead singer of The Ladybug Transistor).

He's become a bit of a sorcerer of sound, Kilgour says of Olson, which means that he's not so tied up in being an expert, like a maestro on instruments, but he has got the ear for sound. So when you apply that to recording, that's what you're looking for with production, those elements that are the magical, ethereal things that take it somewhere else. He's got the Midas touch, the golden ear.

Kilgour has already had three music videos made for his album by benevolent friends, with more to come. The project has taken on a life of its own.

The story's being created, organically unfolding as the record comes out Kilgour says.

My dream is that hopefully it will become a film, and eventually this fairytale will get written ... and it'll end up on Broadway. And Gary and I will live off the remains of the show 'til we're old people. It's our retirement plan!
