Paul’s Boutique – Beastie Boys

Heres a new feature from us here at the Finger. We will try to review some of the most important lps, 12’s, ep’s and cassettes of our `Yoof’. Things that were formative in our taste in music, clothing and even haircuts.
I’ll kick it off with this lil beauty from days as a store boy at Jenny Craig’s in Glendene
Paul’s Boutique – Beastie Boys
We all know the modern day Beasties as the Tibet loving, jazz noodling, punk, rap outfit who had it all going in the late 90’s. Not to mention …

London has it’s days

It was a long weekend this weekend. Bank holiday, though I’m not sure what we were celebrating? Notting Hill Carnival maybe? Or just the end of summer……
I spent the majority of the weekend listening to music. It’s been excellent. On Saturday I made my way out, through the thousands of people who had been sucked in to paying 45 quid to see Carl Cox play at the Common near where I’m living, out to Rough Trade to see some Indie Band from Canada called Holy Fuck. Seeing as it was …

Stink-Finger Debate #01: Detroit, Ewan Pearson and Redshape

discuss…
Mick: I’m seeing Ewan Pearson this weekend, for free! 🙂
thinking Redshape would be way too banging at Berghain for my taste.
Drake: Man – his shit is the hotness, perfect location for it….
And is less banging than Eqan Person can get! heh
Think Pearson will be too epic for panormaa, it suits more subdued grooves of a berlin nature methinks to be truely hot, tho it’s an ace space for anything.
think berghain room on a kompakt night 😀
Mick: Pearson plays to suit the venue. He’ll mack it.
Websta: your love fer pearson …

It isn’t house but it is a thing.

There are some things on in Auckland this weekend.
Tomorrow night (friday 15) I venture into the rain to play at the supperclub on Beresford square. I like supper – despite having a dodgy rep (thanks mainly to the antics of late morning up all night mentalist partygoers) it is generally a relaxed place where you can pretty much play whatever music you like. On an early evening in summer there are few better places in Auckland to be. On a night like tomorrow promises to be I …

Holiday Wrap

So I am back.
Not the most exciting feeling to have but its nice to be home after living in a suitcase for 5 weeks.
So our european adventure started in Berlin, 5 days or so of hanging out in `cool berlin’. The weather was a touch average but we managed to find enough stuff to occupy us, half litre beers being 1 of them.
We got to spend some time with Simon Sting, Matt Drake and Mick the Kid who warrants special mention for moving himself back down to Berlin to hang …
