Greg the skin-chicken covets his nest egg

It’s time for The All Seeing Hand’s annual season of mind-blowing musical town-hopping radical fun times! With a new album out on December 1st (listen below) the trio are embarking on a national tour (details below) and have released a twisted video for ‘Cro-Magnon Corp’:

“It’s a glimpse of the ways people are enticed to wilfully participate in an extractive nightmarish game by spreading fear about the consequences of not getting your foot on the “property ladder” and grabbing your very own nest egg before the basket is empty” – Ben Knight, in conversation with Vice.

The All Seeing Hand are easily one of the most exciting bands in the country and MUST be seen live for full effect. Check them out, ESPECIALLY with the glorious added bonus of Unsanitary Napkin and E-N-T!

“It’s an interesting time to be making music. The themes in Sand To Glass emerged as a reflection of the dystopian sociopolitical environment we’re faced with right now, but from a zoomed-out perspective that looks more at patterns than specific events; the emergence and normalisation of mass surveillance over the last few years, the rise of fear-mongering reality-TV stars as political leaders, all against backdrop of ravenous neoliberal capitalism extracting so much that the capacity of the Earth to sustain life is literally under threat. But at the same time the album conveys ecstatic optimism for transformation in resistance to destruction. It’s definitely more about asking questions than offering answers, but hope and imagination seem more important than ever…” –> Read more from this excellent UTR interview

RADICAL SPIRIT THIS SUNDAY!

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Excited about this one!!!!!

“Saint Mary of the Angels presents a very special concert of exploratory and contemporary music inspired by radical traditions in music and spirituality, featuring a diverse programme of music from traditional (Gregorian chant, medieval polyphony, taonga puoro, throat singing) to contemporary (noise, drone, contemporary composition, improvisation and video art).

A wide ranging group of musicians will present their musical visions in the beautiful setting of Saint Mary of the Angels Church. The church has a long tradition of fine classical and sacred music, including gorgeous sung masses with Renaissance polyphony and Gregorian chant, but this is the first time that exploratory or experimental music has been presented in the church. It will be a further stage in a long history of excellent music presented by the church that has included in recent times the New Zealand String Quartet, Stroma, and Indian classical concerts, but dates back to 1843.”
