6-piece ska band from Christchurch formed in 2001. Nolan Hungerford (Guitar/Vox), Aaron Chandler (Trombone), Joshua Hughes (Trumpet), Brendon Grant (Guitar/Vox), Chris Head (Drums) and Malisa Palalagi (Bass – though i think she may have been replaced). Played a number of high-profile support slots and council organised events since forming, and placed well at the 2003 Dux band competition, despite splitting the audience.
Their debut album was self-funded, recorded at Sweetjuice Studios and released, though they’ve seen a bit of national distribution and exposure (thanks to a choice time-slot on the ‘Play It Strange’ televised event). Personally not my flavor, they have become quite popular in the garden city.
