Hey, how's it going!?

Sorry if we were a bit late in getting this to you, it's been a busy month.  By way of compromise you can check out Dave talking on Wellington Access Radio's NZ Music show (link to 24mb MP3) about his group You Barbarians, and their new release.

In the news: the stockmarkets took everybody on a screaming roller coaster of headlines.  And Jeremy Corbyn is here so that other people can tell you it's stupid to vote for what you want.  The anglosphere Left all moved to the centre over the past couple of decades - is the concentional wisdom that this is how you do things able to explain itself this time around?

Hi!  There's a ton of new music out at the moment, not to mention the new ways to listen to music also.  Apple Music is here - is it dece?

This was recorded prior to the TPPA marches this weekend, but it was a topic at the forefront of our minds.  Is the PR mission being lost?  In related news; our dairy industry takes another lonely step towards the wall with prices hovering at or below the break-even point for NZ farmers, all while details emerge of the legnths to which our government will go to in order to help out a single sheep farm on the other side of the world.

Is it Key's time to go anyway?  Your mates in the boardroom (might) reckon.  Over the pond Abbott finally kinda deals with Bishop, and the right wing stand up and fight for your right to a beer during the rugby world cup.

And hey, Dave's band You Barbarians is releasing its debut EP this Friday the 21st.  Check it out, come have a drink upstairs at JJ Murphy's on the 21st from 8pm and say "hey, Dave, congrats on taking two years to finish a five-song record. Can I purchase a copy please paying cash right here? My mother doesn't let me purchase items off the internet with a credit card" and I will say "Thanks, sure, I've got download cards and also beautiful hand-foiled digipak CD versions available.  Which would you like?".  Alternatively you can pre-order online, mate.  It'll be a good time.

Hey how's it going?

Today we delve deep into the national psyche via the mixed paradigms of opinions on journalism, the man drought, and the pervasive miscellenous suburban feeling that everything is just fine, shut up and go away.

Also! The breathalyser she couldn't refuse! The Barenstæin Bæars freakout, and Dave's band has its freaken debut EP coming out NEXT WEEK.
