Equuslive Collective

Post by foal30 » Mon Aug 11, 2008 8:44 pm

loose knit collective of Christchurch based musicians.
writing, performing and recording original music.

website is http://www.equuslive.co.nz

Sample Song (MP3): http://www.bassplayer.co.nz/files/Equus ... k%2002.mp3

downloads at http://www.virb.com/equus
http://www.muzic.net.nz

pay for the buggers here
http://www.amplifier.co.nz/

gigging band is called Equus, sort of depends on the gig whose playing but you got to know Esther, Scott, Tony and myself will be involved.

Print reviews, probably easiest to go to http://www.nzmusician.co.nz.

We get requests, mostly we play what we feel, sometimes when we play I am free.
And occasionally I think that is what it is all about.

Yeah I know how that feels. I got asked to do a 2 week tour in August but kids and work makes it virtually impossible. :(
What ages are your kids mate?

Really enjoying the CD foal.
You guys should be jolly proud of that.

Loving lots of those bass runs 8)
