Hot off the road from headlining Nelson’s Marchfest and rocking through their Not Over Summer Tour, iconic Kiwi rock’n’roll band The Narcs are playing the Upper Hutt Cossie Club on Friday 26th July as part of their ‘Not Over’ Winter NZ Tour. This will be a rocking night of classic kiwi music and a chance to hear some new tunes including the band’s latest single release ‘Not Over’.
Over the band’s 39 year history, The Narcs have attracted new fans with their fusion of South Island and Sydney-drenched rock’n’roll. From playing their first gig in Christchurch in 1980, the band has had a slew of radio and video hits including “Heart and Soul”, “Lazy Susan”, “Diamonds on China” and “Abandoned By Love”. The Narcs’ recording legacy includes three studio albums: “The Great Divide” (1984), “The Narcs” (1986) and “Push The Boat Out” (1996), and a compilation “Best of The Narcs” (2002).
More recently, 2018 saw the band release two new singles/videos Summerhill Stone and Not Over, appear at Canterbury’s Selwyn Sounds, and tour with Psuedo Echo. 2019 has seen their Not Over Summer Tour and headlining Nelson’s Marchfest.
"Summerhill Stone ..a rocking little tune, recognisably capturing the energy of the Narcs of old. Meanwhile, ‘Not Over’ celebrates the long history of the band, obviously referencing their biggest hit ‘Heart And Soul’, with an accompanying video that is a mash-up of early Narcs footage." - Sunlive, Tauranga
