The Mutton Birds Reveal Support Artists For Summer Headline Shows

The Mutton Birds Reveal Support Artists For Summer Headline Shows

C.C. / Wednesday 15th January, 2020 2:47PM

As Don McGlashan and The Mutton Birds gear up for their rapidly selling-out summer tour of Aotearoa, the creators of such classics as 'Dominion Road' and 'Anchor Me' have revealed regional supports for their forthcoming headline events. Joining the full original lineup of McGlashan, Ross Burge, David Long and Alan Gregg for selected dates are award-winning folk artist Reb Fountain, noise-rock supergroup Teeth (featuring The Phoenix Foundation's Lukasz Buda and Thomas Callwood, Anthony Donaldson and The Mutton Birds' David Long), and moustachioed Wellington songsmith Finn Johansson.

Don McGlashan shared his excitement about cracking open The Mutton Birds songbook once more: “Mutton Birds songs never stay still. We get in a room together after a few years, pick up our instruments, and it's as if the songs have been carrying on while we've been away; getting better, stronger, more like themselves. All we do is light the touch paper and stand well clear.”

Press release:

Aotearoa’s beloved storytellers, The Mutton Birds, are poised to kick off their headline tour and are delighted to announce the artists supporting them. Starting in Dunedin on Friday, January 24th, the powerhouse noir-folk singer-songwriter Reb Fountain will be opening at Glenroy Stadium, Dunedin. In Wellington on February 6th local heroes TEETH will be taking the San Fran stage first. A new show added in Wellington on the 7th and both Wellington shows have now sold out. Wellington's much-loved psychedelic-country songwriter, Finn Johansson opens the Wellington show on the 7th and at The Cabana in Napier on the 8th.

Asked how he felt about playing the Mutton Birds' songbook once again, Don McGlashan responded “Mutton Birds songs never stay still. We get in a room together after a few years, pick up our instruments, and it's as if the songs have been carrying on while we've been away; getting better, stronger, more like themselves. All we do is light the touch paper and stand well clear.”

The full original lineup will be on the road this summer including the founder, singer and songwriter Don McGlashan. When the band formed in 1991 McGlashan was already a highly regarded figure for his work in the legendary post-punk-era group Blam Blam Blam. With ex-Six Volts guitarist David Long and drummer Ross Burge, the group began recording their debut album in late 1991. Following its completion, former Dribbling Darts bassist Alan Gregg was recruited to fill out the line-up.
