FLYING NUN RECORDS RE-ISSUE TWO LIMITED EDITION 12” EPS FOR RECORD STORE DAY

It’s been over three decades since Christchurch record shop employee and music fan, Roger Shepherd was inspired to start a record label as an outlet for South Island bands. And it was the city of Dunedin that quickly became most strongly associated with Flying Nun, and in 1982, four bands from that southern outpost - The ChillsSneaky Feelings, the Stones and the Verlaines – each recorded a side for a double 12″ EP pack, which actually untitled, was referred to as the Dunedin Double.

The Dunedin EP theme also continues with Flying Nun’s other Record Store Day release, the Bored Games - ‘Who Killed Colonel Mustard.’

Released the same year as the Dunedin Double (1982) it introduced the music of a 17-year-old Shayne Carter, who would later go on to form The DoubleHappy’s and Straightjacket Fits. In the tradition of many great bands they formed while attending high school, debuting at the school’s talent contest in 1979 they went on to play a show supporting Toy Love.

As part of the Record Store Day release, the EP has been remastered and includes an insert of previously unseen photos. Limited to 1000 copies.

Hello Satellites will play a single launch in support of ‘Television Screens’ in Melbourne on Sunday 24th of November at The Workers Club. Full details and ticket information for the show can be foundhere.

84000 was recorded and mixed by Popov in collaboration with three of Melbourne’s finest producers,Nick HugginsJ Walker (Machine Translations) and Joe Hammond and is due for release in early 2014.

84000 is an album about our addiction to dreaming and the stories we tell ourselves – about delusions and what we use them to get away from. It’s about our physical bodies and how they house our perfection, our hollowness, our sexuality, our desire, our addictions and the search for freedom and connection.

The title – 84000 refers to the number of holes, or pores in the body according to Chinese Medicine. It also is an important number in Buddhism – the Buddha had 84000 teachings to remedy the 84000 afflictions, or delusions one could suffer from.

Hello Satellites – 84000 will be released in March 2014 via

NEW MICK TURNER ALBUM ‘DON’T TELL THE DRIVER AND VIDEO’

Mick Turner’s new album Don’t Tell the Driver is out today via King Crab / Remote Control.
You can stream the album right now via The New York Times.
With the help of his many friends, Mick Turner has turned over a powerful page of life and music with Don’t Tell the Driver. The album was recorded at Mick’s Melbourne studio ‘Big Moth’ over last 4 years. 

The album is different from all other Mick Turner records – not just his own, but the ones he’s done with Dirty Three, Bonny Prince Billy, and Venom P. Stinger put together.  Don’t Tell the Driver is unarguably the first post-rock rock opera of our times. A record of our times by an artist running out of time.

Don’t Tell the Driver features heaps of help from friends, adding piano, melodica, Fender Rhodes, horns and vocals.

Mick Turner has shared a video for the meditative eight minute track ‘The Bird Catcher’, featuring the late and much loved actress/singer Karen Black in time for the release of his new album Don’t Tell The Driver.
