Cover for FANZ, Live at the Pyramid Club

The New Zealand-based noise label End of the Alphabet Records hit the ground running with their release of the Nofi Rainbow Vol.1 compilation featuring NZ sound-art legends the likes of Bruce Russell, Peter Wright, Campbell Kneale and Antony Milton amongst a host of up & comers late last year. Since then they’ve had a prolific release schedule that’s showing no signs of slowing.

Label founder, Noel Meek, and artists Antony Milton & Fergus Nelson Moores (Mischancerie) spoke with Craig Hayes of the trusty Radio New Zealand about their impetus & ideas around sound. Stream it here:

GOODBYE FRED’S!

Freds

The Frederick St Sound and Light Exploration Society deserves eternal immunity to all things counter its continuation. For three glorious years this 110 year old hall has been the creative home to some of the most exciting and inspiring music and art in New Zealand with everything one could want for an alternative arts space; beautiful acoustics, a beautiful atmosphere, welcoming hosts and audiences, free cups of tea, BYO and even a beer vending machine!

We at Sonorous Circle feel extremely lucky to have had a place like this in our midst, supplying us with a steady flow of mind-expanding sounds and sights. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Dan Beban, Nell Thomas and the whole extended crew of Freds practitioners and supporters for keeping the place active and nurturing such an amazing artistic community in the process.

ALAS, because the council has deemed it an earthquake risk, tomorrow will see its final show before the building is boarded up and later demolished. A sad state of affairs, but not without the celebration it deserves! This is your last chance to enjoy this vital Wellington institution!
