idle star

a christchurch pub band, no less. their self-titled and self-released debut was a valiant attempt at some kind of credibility. maybe next time.

idols of eve

4-piece post-punk outfit from christchurch who have been active since the early 00s, based around diana mckay’s vocals and rythm guitar, with jason tamihana-bryce shimmering lead guitar having a big impact on their angular sound. though adrienne ross has been their drummer since year dot, they’ve cycled through a number of bass players, settling on myself, chris andrews in early 2003. 2003 was a productive year for the band, settling into a more regular gigging routine, along with studio time preparing the debut release.
in 2004, the band have reshaped again due to the departure of ross, now replaced by julie behind the thrown, though once again the band was to have problems with finding a steady drummer, as julie has now relocated to the west coast (though still holds the spot for now). in mid 2004, i released my own solo recordings as a million lights.
