young rock’n’rollers from the south-of-auckland mcca that is papakura. their live show is sharp, if a little warn, and the band really managed to establish themselves in 2004 by touring simultaneously with stars-in-the-making the coolies, whilst taking part in the (huge) schools’ tour – a gruelling high-school performance and education road-show that saw a lot of up-and-coming bands get a bit of exposure (and lets not forget tightened routines) across new zealand. in late 2004 the band renamed themselves the situations (after a single gig as the basics) – possibly hinting at a different direction for this young quartet.
