about

NZ psych-rockers Brother Love this year celebrate 20 years in the rock and roll undergrowth. Formed in Christchurch in 1993 by ex-Axel Grinders Marty Henderson and Patrick Faigan, the group found early success releasing vinyl on US cottage labels, and were then able to tour the States twice in 1996 and 2000.

These releases garnered them an international following which led to, among other things, support slots for Dead Moon and Sebadoh and an appearance on the soundtrack of local feature film Snakeskin.

In 1998, the group relocated to Wellington, and the departure of Faigan precipitated a period of widely diverse line-ups, generally promoted live as Brother Love and the Free Association.

Recordings made during this era were released on CD/LP, Rock'n'Roll Criminal on German psyche-rock label September Gurls, and on the group's debut New Zealand label release, The Sin Aesthetic in 2003.

From 2004, the group was based in Auckland and now resides in Christchurch. The current lineup features bassist Rock Hardman (of Ape Management and Royal Wolf) and drummer Ken Mexted (also drummer for Ape Management and the SF5).

Their last album, The Gospel According to Brother Love, was released in 2009, followed by The Funhouse EP in 2011.
Now 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.

Live, the group brings the energy of a classic psychedelic hard-rock power trio, with moody atmospherics and screaming guitars accompanying the songs of love, hate and hope.

about

PowertoolRecords Auckland, New Zealand

Rough Church was conceived after the demise of Ferdinand, the band that existed from 1994-2003. Baseball, Concrete, rare steamy rain, tumbleweeds and lost poems about dirty chimneys are what influence this band. It spits out indie pop classic jams that get us compared to everything from Minutemen, Pixies, Broken Social Scene, WAR and Grand Funk. Deal with it! We can't get away from it. ... more
