NZ Connections: The Chills, The Clientele and The Puddle














The Chills played in Auckland with a choir, bell ringer and pipe organist at an industry junket last week. No light has been shed on the significance of the rhythmic gymnasts, but I trust it’s not indicative of a new vaudeville direction for The Chills.














Those of you who have secured a copy of The Clientele’s new ep, That Night, A Forest Grew, will be familiar with the song George Says He Has Lost His Way In The World. It’s about George Henderson of The Puddle, whose most recent album No Love No Hate is an essential purchase; its standout track, I’ve Lost My Way In The World, was the inspiration for The Clientele's song.

George’s brother Ian, Puddle drummer and Fishrider label boss, has made a great video for I’ve Lost My Way In The World, which you should direct yourselves to right now.

Careful there, Steve. Such a back-and-forth of answer songs inevitably leads to "beefs" and "caps in asses".

Also, it's "Alasdair", not "Alistair". You may just have started your own beef. At the very least, you've been deducted 20 Indie Cred points. Now go to your bedroom and listen to your Camera Obscura albums and think about what you've done.
