Next appearing at Fringe Bar in Wellington, Tuesday 28th March 2017, 8:45pm. Free entry.
The Electricka Zoo are one of Wellington’s most intriguing new live bands, a bass/guitar and live electronica duo of Dave Black and the Digitator. They combine influences from EDM, punk rock, jazz, reggae, Balkan and Portuguese music into their own homegrown NZ sound.
Keep an eye and two ears out for their first album, coming soon.
In the meantime a vinyl-only 7″ single and collection of early (2015-2016) demos on Soundcloud are available.

Happy Indonesian Independence Day, 17th August!
East to West will be screening this Saturday in Invercargill, as part of the Southland Arts Festival. I’ll be there in person to add some live musical accompaniment.
East to West takes the audience on a journey half way around the world from New Zealand, across Australia, via a dozen countries including Indonesia, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Mongolia, Russia, Albania, Portugal and more.
This will be my first performance in Southland, and my first South Island project in nearly a decade – see also South Island Sessions
Music video from the album ‘South Island Sessions‘, set in 19th century New Zealand with an ecological theme. ‘The Ballad of William Knife’ was the name of the show we took to the Dunedin Fringe Festival in 2006.
