The Puddle recently played in Auckland along with The Able Tasmans who had reformed for a one-off performance and the Able Tasmans off-shoot Humphreys & Keen.

The album “The Shakespeare Monkey” is finally available in record stores throughout NZ, distributed by Yellow Eye.

Here are some links to recent reviews:

Also came across this great quote from Able Tasmans bass player Jane Dodd:

Which musicians from the early Dunedin days do you feel most lived up to their promise?

Promise is such a funny word — Downes, Kilgour, Carter, Bannister/Pine achieved so much early on that they had fulfilled all promises by their mid-twenties. If you mean who is still doing it now, Shane’s new Dimmer stuff is great — especially the first album “I believe you are a star”. I haven’t heard much else recently that has really got me. George Henderson of the Puddle never promised anything but delivered pure magic — he is a neglected genius.
