In the years since he first surfaced from the depths that spawned him, Delaney Davidson has been one of the most vividly realized characters in New Zealand music. ‘Self Decapitation‘ and ‘Bad Luck Man‘ it seems were paving the way … Continue reading

For the first time in Munich, Delaney will be teaming up with long time partner in crime Pierre Omer from Dead Brothers on guitar and accordion, Ben Woolley from New Zealand on bass and Davide Zolli from the mighty Mojomatics on drums. Yes, that’s right – you can call this a “supergroup!”
The city is known as the second largest publishing center in the world (around 250 publishing houses have offices in the city), and many national and international publications are published in Munich, such as Arts in Munich, LAXMag and Prinz.
Prominent literary figures worked in Munich especially during the final centuries of the Kingdom of Bavaria such as Paul Heyse, Max Halbe, Rainer Maria Rilke and Frank Wedekind. The period immediately before World War I saw economic and cultural prominence for the city. Munich, and especially its suburb of Schwabing, became the domicile of many artists and writers. Thomas Mann, who also lived there, wrote ironically in his novella Gladius Dei about this period, “Munich shone”. It remained a centre of cultural life during the Weimar period with figures such as Lion Feuchtwanger, Bertolt Brecht and Oskar Maria Graf.
Large parts of the central city were destroyed in World War II by Allied bombing in 1942 and 1944. After the war through reconstruction and subsequent extension, the city became a major industrial centre of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) with the port being developed as the state’s primary gate to the world. Much of the historic centre has been faithfully rebuilt and much of its historic character restored. This includes several buildings characterised by vertical brick ribs, a style common to the Hanseatic towns.
A powerful four piece
A powerful four piece that swings somewhere between The Kinks, Lou Reed and the R’n’B of early Stones, mixing in Country Twang and a compelling drive from the amazing rhythm section. Melody and harmony tangled up with Omers darker sense, Davidsons twisted style with a solid push. Rhythm vs Melody.

Hitler had a personal dislike for Lübeck after it had refused to allow him to campaign there in 1932. During World War II, Lübeck was the first German city to be attacked in substantial numbers by the Royal Air Force (RAF). The attack on 28 March 1942 created a firestorm that caused severe damage to the historic centre.
Lübeck is famous for its marzipan industry. According to local legend, marzipan was first made in Lübeck, possibly in response either to a military siege of the city or a famine year. The story, perhaps apocryphal, is that the town ran out of all food except stored almonds and sugar, which were used to make loaves of marzipan “bread”.
