Supa Dog Touring is delighted to present, for the first time ever in New Zealand, mclusky*.
Featuring Future of the Left members Andrew “Falco” Falkous and Jack Egglestone, with the addition of Damien Sayell from the St Pierre Snake Invasion, the Cardiff outfit will be playing venues in Wellington and Auckland this January.
mclusky were a band most active between 1999 and 2005, in which time they made a few friends and three albums. Slow-forward 14 years and, thanks to the uncanny pull of nostalgia and gravity, they have made more friends but no more albums.
Persuaded originally to reform - like ham - to help save a local music venue and for other vaguely charitable reasons, mclusky* is the name; now with Damien Sayell of The St Pierre Snake Invasion (who incidentally have an album out this year) playing bass and singing, it's loads better (technical term) than it used to be, nostalgia be twatted directly in the eye.
Praise for mclusky*
“The post-hardcore group may have split in 2005, but their reputation has grown in their absence. Witty, acerbic and brutal, it’s often hard to comprehend why they weren’t bigger.” - The Guardian
“An unadulterated joy... no one could possibly be leaving disappointed from this.” - Get Into This
“mclusky* blow away any doubts within the first few bars, with every satire-barbed lyric and Malcom Tucker-grade profanity screamed back at them from a tangle of flailing limb in the front rows.“ - Joyzine
