Salad Boys at Camp a Low Hum 2013

Salad Boys at Camp a Low Hum 2013

Here’s my New Zealand Music month Bandcamp purchase for 4 May. It’s the Salad Boys, a three-piece from Christchurch who sound like they would rather come from Dunedin. This mini-album channels so much of David Kilgour (The Clean and his solo albums) that, unsurprisingly, they recently backed him in Wellington, playing his songs and some Clean songs. Check out ‘Dream Date’ and ‘Here’s no Use’ in particular.

Joe Sampson is better known as guitarist/ vocalsist in lost in action Flying Nun Records signings T54. He also plays in Dance Asthmatics and assembled a compilation of Christchurch guitar-rock called ‘Sickest Smashes from Arson City’ recently.

The Salad Boys play in Dunedin tonight (Saturday 4 May 2013) (at Queens) as part of the ‘Sickest Smashes from Arson City’ tour.
