Ending of the YearThings Start to Wind Down
Operation Rolling Thunder have completed their Dunedin release show at XII Below, Moray Place, on the 6th of November. It was a well patronised and well received show, Hana Fahy and Conray were exemplary and many a record was sold.
As the end of the year approaches, Operation Rolling Thunder do have a very cool project currently in the early stages of organisation, be sure to keep an eye out closer to Christmas for further updates.
In the meantime, if you're quick, Under the Radar have printed a great review of III, and are giving you the chance to win a signed copy of the LP. Check it out here.
And while you're checking things out, here's the Otago Daily Time piece leading up to the album release show.
And, for good measure, watch the beautiful video for Behaviour in the Presence of Strangers (song downloadable from bandcamp) by Damon Duncan:
Mountaineater have closed up shop for the year, and it is safe to say that the promised album will not be happening this year. Keep an eye out for details on recordings early next year. In the meantime you can watch those live videos on youtube:
