The Snares

Dunedin based avant-indie trio featuring Mike Dooley (Toy Love and Snapper – Drums) his daughter Maxine Funke (Guitar) and Brett Moodie (Guitar), that formed out of the Dooley / Funke duo the Beaters. The first album was a meditative production guided by Arc Life engineer (and member of David Kilgour‘s Heavy Eights), whilst their follow-up Dance The Dervish is closer to a live recording, though still capturing their eclectic strengths – both released on the bands own Horrible (the name, not the quality) label.

I’d imagine these days your best bet would be Real Groovy (in Auckland), Rough Trade (in Wellington), Galaxy Records (in Christchurch) or Records Records (in Dunedin).
