Singer of some of the finest tunes to emerge from our shores with his group The Mockers, songwriter and poet Andrew Fagan embarks on a new adventure this coming April. Fagan will at long last be touring his latest album Act Normal, which launched back in February 2020 seemingly a lifetime ago, just before the dreaded Covid scuppered everyone's plans and sent Aotearoa into lockdown. In his element live (as he's stated, “Good songs and showing off are not mutually exclusive concepts”), Fagan is set to tour with his latest band The People, whose membership includes Darryn Harkness (New Telepathics, Loud Ghost), Kurt Shanks (stellar*), Joe Dekkers-Reihanna and John Murray. Standout single from Fagan's new album, 'On Channel Me' is a scathing appraisal of our social media obsessed digital age — expect to hear that number plus such Fagan and Mockers gems as 'Exciting', 'Now You Know', 'Get Light', 'Jerusalem' and more, throughout the North Island at the following dates...

Press release:

Andrew Fagan and his band return to venues across the North Island in April to perform songs from his solo and Mockers years, and celebrate acclaimed new album Act Normal.

Fagan’s career spans over 40 years, from his time as frontman of punk group The Ambitious Vegetables, pop-rockers The Mockers, to his ongoing solo career.

His solo material over the years - performed with his band Fagan and The People- includes laconic social commentary classics such as Exciting, Astonishment, Now You Know, Blame Me, Get Light, Religion, Jerusalem, and On Channel Me.

New album Act Normal was released on the cusp of lockdown, so the band are jumping out of their skins for this delayed release tour. To coincide with the tour, new single You’ll Be Fine is released in early March.

Fagan’s band features Darryn Harkness (New Telepathics, Loud Ghost), Kurt Shanks (stellar*), Joe Dekkers- Reihanna, and John Murray.

“Andrew Fagan was king for a day as The People rose, played, and sang along, with him as he rocked the Anthology Lounge with his usual bravado, elegance and regency,” David Boyle, Radio 13, February 2020.
