Ghost Wave / Team Cat Food

Written by: 19 July 2015 3 Comments

Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3/Spectrum) is mastering the new Ghost Wave album “Radio Norfolk” which is due out later this year. I hope it turns out well for them because they’re probably my favourite Auckland band.

The drummer Eamonn has been releasing electronic music as part of a project Team Cat Food (check out Ponderosa below). Seeing how broad their taste is reminds me of the Tony Wilson quote about the reason there were so many good Manchester bands was because Manchester kids had the best record collections, which I assume these guys have based on their influences including Northern Soul, Moodymann, Neu and Galaxie 500.

Some what related is this documentary on shoe gaze band Slowdive. It’s a bit of a stretch but Spacemen 3 do get mentioned and it’s a great watch so I’m including it here.

    slowdive is a pitchfork thing right? i got that album on cassette (probably 5 for $20) and had it in the car for years. I really liked it, but even back then i wouldn’t have told anybody that!
    its not good enough to deserve a doco

    I thought the doco was great. Explains how it was released and no one gave a shit.

    even the band looked a bit confused that anyone was making a fuss
