Big Sideways

no kidding big: this new zealand band boasts a dozen members, including four horn people, four guitarists and two drummers. seven of ’em are songwriters, which (not surprisingly) makes this a pretty eclectic record, fusing rock, jazz, funk and antipodean ethnic musics. capped off with idealistic lyrics, big sideways is upbeat and intelligent; highly arranged but hardly slick.rn- ira robbins: taken from trouserpress.com

big sideways were a prominant auckland-based experimental performance group in the early 80s, and featured ivan zagni and justin harwood (also of the chills, coconut rough) and tom ludvigson amongst their collective.
