Conniption and Cops @ Whammy

Postby ghetto ninja » Sun Oct 04, 2009 10:29 pm

Best show Ive been to at Whammy in farking ages.

Ferndale Stranglers- Shanes obnoxious banter reservoir was overflowing. Our german friend Lina thought you guys were the fucking shit. I on the other hand know your shit. Rool choice.

Crawler-Was choice being able to hear Nic in the mix. Couple of moments there where I really wished I was tripping. Piercing soundscapes punctuated by aggressive vocal outbursts.

Filthy Lucifer- Our fill in drummer did a great fucking job and we had a fucking mean time. Chur heaps.

Conniption- I had no idea these guys were so fucking good. A really awesome party set rudely interupted by the local Constabulary. What was the song youse played when they were standing round? Fucking awesome band.

Whammy is a fucking rad joint when its not filled with indie hipsters. Run by fucking choice cunts that actually look after the bands, not often these days you get free booze from the venue.
The cop invasion upstairs was fucking chaos, having to be shut into the entrance of Whammy while the cops were pepperspraying teenagers was fucked. Did not dig the way they tried to staunch a whole room full of people who were trying to enjoy a band.
Choice crowd that actually got into shit rather than standing around in a semi circle. Shot
Marko P was crack ups to. TUA
Rad night.

Pretty fun time except for the cops being dicks. Doesnt really help to antagonise them though.

Some cunt took my hoodie though, black suicide machines zip up with a dude with an ak and gasmask on the front. If you accidently grabbed it, id like it back, and if you see someone with in, please rob them of it for me, thanks.

Whammy was a pretty decent venue though I thought, good as vibes. Hopefully the scuffle doesnt stop more gigs from happening there.

I blame the people from out of town. These Aucklanders have trouble doing it by themselves.

Ferndales were silly but good, rest of the bands were badass. Dunedin is a cesspool of awesome bands, so it's great to have the likes of Conniption touring up here. I was completely oblivious to whatever was going on outside.

Had a good night on the whole, apart from being peppersprayed and battoned it was ace as. watched andy get smacked around in the cells too which was pretty shit. but singing anti cop songs to a bunch of cops is pretty stupid,

Enjoyed playing, think shane had more fun tho, unfortunayely missed all the other bands, gutted i didnt see the mighty lucifer, and crawler i also like. but the house party on sunday was fuckin ace, conniption are pretty fuckin cool.

dont think the fernys will be playing at whammy again,

Which in turn made the whole thing 50 times worse than it needed to be.
You kids have no idea about "true skins". Some of you need to spend an afternoon with some of the old AK skins like Raymond, you would shit your little knickers.
Fuck up.

Turned up a little bit too early but had a few good drinks with good company while waiting for bands to start.

Ferndale Stranglers were heaps better than the last time i saw them (with bludgers in welli) drunker but tighter. Pretty crackup banter, did Shane get his piece out? Had a singalong for Anarchy in Woolworths. VB is a pretty great song. Probably my favourite Auckland band.

Ruckus was enjoyable.

Filthy Lucifer were real mean, didnt really know what the fuck to expect but totally stoked, singer has a choice range. Good shit.

Conniption blew me away, cheers for the patches. Lance is a real impressive drummer, sweaty motherfucker. Can't wait to come down with Hugh and the guys and play a few shows. Laughed at heavy police attendance, girl walking up the stairs behind us afterward:
'FTP!!'
'WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU SAY?!'
'nothing... i.. gotta pee...'

good to meet some lovely people, thanks for giving us something to do in Auckland on our otherwise uneventful night.

Guess what. In New Zealand if you fuck with the police they arrest you, and you go to the cells.

"true skins"

christ, it's "true blackmetal" all over again.... at the end of the day is just another group of people playing dress-ups.

Best moment of the show was Fat Jeff pulling Aidan onto the dance floor by his neck and Aidan managing to keep his drink unspilt ala Julian off trailer park boys. Well impressed. Good to meet you Aids.

You too broski. Ive been known to pass out completely without spilling a drop, I think I must have been born with that particular skill.
