It’s a rite of passage, isn’t it? Pack up your bags and head for British shores, pull pints in a pub or become one of the many fabled Kiwi baristas of London. Bid farewell to Aotearoa and see what the big bad world has in store for you. Leave loved ones behind, or bring them along for the ride. And if you’re doing it as a band many of the same rules apply. Some will be able to come along for the journey, others may stay back at home. So it was that The Eversons​, originally of Wellington, most recently of Auckland, and currently of London went from four, to five, to six, to five – and back to the original four again. An article by Briar Lawry​.

The last time Paul Cathro​ was pictured in NZ Musician it was as a member of Dunedin band Ha the Unclear​, who were about to drop their debut album in mid-2014. Recorded not long before they moved north, the band’s off-kilter, darkly humorous tracks and subsequent videos have since earned them regular local gigs and a variety of international plaudits. It turns out that just before leaving Dunedin the bassist also put down the beds of his own album, which, two and a half years later, has plummeted to earth as ‘Head First Into Solid Ground’. Briar Lawry​ talked with Cathro about his old but new solo offering.

The Verlaines have been a musical force for 35 years (in various guises), and intriguingly currently exist in two versions, one of which is the original trio of Graeme Downes, Jane Dodd and Robbie Yeats. The forthcoming album, ‘Dunedin Spleen’ belongs to the other version of The Verlaines, one that includes a good number of Dr Graeme Downes’ fellow University of Otago music academics. Almost incredibly a double-album, it’s been four years in the making as he reveals to Amanda Mills.
