Gig Information

Nominally inspired by a side-scrolling hack and slash arcade game, Golden Axe’s cult pop and hyper-transgressive Pump and Circumstance rematerializes in Christchurch for the first time since 2007. Loaded with beguiling pop gems and un-guiding, upbeat cosmic adventures, the duo have recently emancipated a glut of irreverent cover versions, including Katy Perry’s ‘Hot and Cold’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'. This is the album release show for their third album, ‘Fantasy Footwork’.
 
Dorkwind’s minimal arsenal consists of a waveform pedal, drums and bass, but the paint-stripped palette evokes an aggrandized Mainliner splat detonated through a flying tumulus of Lightning Bolt funk and undead Sabbath camp that’s totally over the top. Its members are Wellington and Butt Simpson's Ryan Bennett and Golden Axe’s Daif King.
 
Manifested as hi-romantic webcam pop, MUD disco and Chat Roulette sing-along, Fraser Austin’s auguring of the Astrological Age of Aquarius through his budding Secrets moniker is at once pastiche-soaked, heavenly and prophylactic.
