Helter Skelter

A 'Helter skelter' rehearsal. This is a band formed by me / matt alien / lynton von denhoven / shaun dury and grant. All old crew from NZ who have rolled over here to melbourne in the last year or so. Of course, what do you do when you hook up with some of your old muso pals? Start a band of course! (somehow we got away with it....). There is a studio recording floating around which sounded ace when we recorded it. That was six months ago. Hopefully one of these years it'll get mixed. In the meantime, here's a jam we had that i recorded on my telephone. Pretty low fi but fun for the whole family!

20mins of sheer improvisation. Enjoy.

Maus were a three piece christchurch band from the early 90's. The brainchild of Matt davenport (pictured), maus went through a couple of different lineups with Matt firmly at the helm. Heavily influenced by the gordons, maus were not a quiet band. They rehearsed at my house a few times and you could'nt hear yourself think!
My band the Babels toured the south island with them playing to hardly anyone... but fuck we had a good time!
This recording made in the lounge of a flat in cramner square by James Woods catches them at their finest hour. This is the only recording i know of they made. Check out some great songwriting and some awesome tonal vibrations. Another lost NZ classic!

the Satanic Rockers

This person is a BAD MAN! This is an assault on
all goodness! Why, only the other night he came to my house, pointed a gun at me and demanded curry!
If you listen to music like this.... then you need psychological help. I'd rather sit a home and listen to something nice (like roger whittaker) while sipping my sherry. Not this sort of behaviour!

Download includes artwork. Also by Mr Satanic rocker himself. Good one Lynton!
