w/ the situations, at the dux de lux, nov 15th 2006

Pretty exciting show at the Dux. I caught the Situations years ago back when they were called Devils Gate Drive and I reckon they’ve come along way. Probably helps when your also the new band for the mighty Bob Cardy; the new live and loud Shaft.

Pretty small, but enthusiastic crowd; I think Bob sold a few cds and t-shirts, and the punters took in some good old fashioned pop and rock.

Robert Cardy

Biography

Bob Cardy has a long history of making lo-fi, shambolic and DIY rock music.

From the early days of post-Vacuum Blue Ladder¬†Christchurch with the infamous Axemen (then known as Bob Brannigan), through to the eventual rise of Shaft in late 1990’s Auckland, often with Lil’ Stevie McCabe as his song-writing partner.
