One teacher said he didn’t know if I’d grow up to be a genius or a madman. For a long time I thought I’d have to choose.
An excellent interview with George Henderson of The Puddle was published in this week's issue of NZ magazine The Listener.
A new Puddle album, The Shakespeare Monkey, is out soon on Fishrider. Label boss Ian Henderson describes it as:
Over 60 minutes of top notch Puddle stuff from gentle mental psych-pop to yelping Stooges-infused garage rock and featuring strings (real ones, played by Alan Starrett who has played on some Bats and David Kilgour albums) and a monkey choir (not real, sadly - It's hard to find a good singing monkey in Dunedin).
