Pumice "Pebbles" LP release gig, 15 October

Stefan Neville, AKA Pumice, has planned a launch gig for the newly-released LP reissue of his 2007 opus Pebbles on 15 October at the Wine Cellar in Auckland. He's recruited the peerless Rosy Parlane to assist in playing the album front-to-back.

Here's a word from Stefan himself about the proceedings --

I recorded Pebbles in 2006 at home in Kingsland with a precarious pile of instruments on a weary 8 track tape machine. I was in a downstairs room & much of it was recorded as quietly as possible so as not to disturb flatmates upstairs.

Pebbles originally came out on CD in 2007 on Soft Abuse Records (Minneapolis,USA) and the same label has now had it remastered & re-released on LP in a limited edition of 300 which also comes with a download code.

To celebrate I have decided to play the whole album live. To do this I've enlisted Rosy Parlane to play piano, bass, ukelele & keyboards while I handle drums, guitar, reed organ, vocals & tapes. We will play three short sets consisting of Side One, Side Two & some extras at the end.

Look for photos & video from the gig as soon as we get 'em. Order your copy of Pebbles (on CD, CS or LP) here.
