Out of the gloom of the Rotorua valley comes Alt rockers 'Turn on the News'. The three-piece unit of guitar bass and drums combine raw power with fine song crafting. With influences from Punk, Metal, 80's New Wave and Goth the band has been described as a cross between Culture Club and Black Sabbath. To be seen to be believed. Turn on the News revive an early punk and hard rock sound with driving rhythms. The sulphur city has unearthed some untapped energy not to be missed.
Terry Farrelly - Drums
Matt De Farias - Bass/Vocal
Justin Sherborne - Guitar/Voca
No Name on Record: We trolled through the archives for 'No Name on Record', yet as the name suggests we came up with nothing. The band was hand-picked from an esteemed music promoter so we wait in anticipation for their alleged wizardry in the art of making music. Rumoured to hail locally yet we know no more. These are the dark horseman for this show.
