Trick Mammoth ‘Jangle, All the Way Home’ with The Verlaines

Trick Mammoth played in Auckland last weekend (14th December 2013) at the Kings Arms. It was part of a Christmas party/ year-end event organised by Flying Out Records (the mail-order operation of Flying Nun Records which includes Fishrider Records releases in its catalogue). It was also a show marking the re-release of The Verlaines’ classic 1985 debut album Hallelujah – All The Way Home”.

Following Trick Mammoth was another band from Dunedin – Astro Children – a two-piece featuring Trick Mammoth’s Millie. Astro Children have just released a brilliant and adventurous debut called ‘Proteus’ on Auckland label Muzai Records.

Adding bass to Trick Mammoth’s live show was another Dunedin pop underground figure – Kane Strang. Kane will be joining the combined album release show on Friday for Males and Trick Mammoth which also features Astro Children. The overlapping family nature of this corner of the scene in Dunedin right now can get confusing, so here’s a simple Venn Diagram to help you navigate.
