NZ psych-rockers Brother Love this year celebrate 20 years in the rock and roll undergrowth. Powertool Records celebrates Brother Love’s birthday with “20 Years in a Rockin’ Boat”, a collection spanning their adventurous history and covering their myriad sonic styles. They will be bringing something of an underground supergroup to Auckland. The Brother Love live experience will feature Marty Henderson (Axel Grinders, Brother Love), Dwayne Zarakov (aka Patrick Faigan, ex-King Loser, Axel Grinders), John Segovia (Axel Grinders, Shaft, Don McGlashan & the Seven Sisters) and George Henderson (the Puddle). Joining them will be Jackal and Masses. Jackal formed in late 2006, setting out to meld a raw punk/alternative sound, inspired by bands such as Dinosaur Jr, with a Black Sabbath-type hard rock vibe. They’ve just released their third album ‘Only Everything’, with their new material driven by a focus on the subtlety of shifting dynamics, and the tension and power created by the interplay of the instruments. Even a single listen of ‘Only Everything’ demonstrates that it is a unique musical statement that moves through various moods effortlessly. www.facebook.com/JackalBand Masses are a four-piece from South Auckland, a fusion of metal/punk/rock, keen on emphasising the creative forces of those genres. https://www.facebook.com/massesnz
