Here's Five: Elemeno P Share Their Favourite NZ Punk Songs

Here's Five: Elemeno P Share Their Favourite NZ Punk Songs

Friday 2nd November, 2018 3:38PM

Auckland pop-punk icons Elemeno P are currently in the midst of an ever-expanding tour of Aotearoa, hitting Auckland's Nectar Bar and Wellington's Meow this weekend with emo-punk road dogs carb on carb, and marching onwards to the South Island next week. With timeless singalong hits including ‘Verona’, ‘Nirvana’ and ‘Fast Times in Tahoe’ under their belts, we felt a great way to get psyched for the oncoming shows was to ask the band to share their favourite fist-pumping local punk tunes. The team of Dave Gibson, Lani Purkis, Scotty Pearson, Justyn Pilbrow and longtime collaborator Godfrey de Grut generously obliged, get their selections below down your earholes and catch Elemeno P in your area this month...

1. Skeptics – 'Affco'

Justin: I liked the music video and the distortion on the guitar.

2. Kitsch - 11/11

Lani: This was the pivotal band for me. When I was 20 my band Foamy Ed played a show with Kitsch, at our next band practice we made all our songs double time and played downstrokes. Life changing. Thanks Kitsch.

3. The Bleeders - 'All That Glitters'

Scotty: Energy of that sold out Kings Arms show, it felt like a movement. A movement we weren’t a part of hehe being the pop rockers but loved it. The sweat. Angelo screaming his lungs out etc.

4. Sommerset - 'Clutter'

Dave: I love this song, It reminds of my youth. Being in my twenties, riding my BMX between the Kings Arms and my apartment on Greys Ave. Working cafe jobs in the city, randomly driving over to the shore to watch the sun come up at Chelsea Sugar Refinery. Endless nights, sleepy days and zero responsibility.

5. Sticky Filth - 'Weep Women Weep'

Godfrey: I always wanted to be in Sticky Filth, but they never needed keys. Elemeno P is as close as I got.
