Leigh News & Events
Mind-blowing San Diego garage funk leviathan The Schizophonics are back with a hot new album (‘People in the Sky’) and a massive tour of some loveLeigh 🙂 Aotearoa venues.
It’s like… So… Ok, imagine the MC5 went to a bowling club and ended up going head to head with The Meters but then it ended in a draw and they all went dancing. Or James Brown went shopping but the shoes he bought were too small so he gave them to ol’ mate Jimi Hendrix who was so chuffed he bought them both tickets to a Stooges concert. Imagine that but louder and you’ve got The Schizophonics. All gyrating, all groovin’, all rock ‘n’ roll!

Summer 2020 sees Tattletale Saints return home to celebrate the release of their new album, Dancing Under the Dogwoods, out on January 24th.
Originally from Auckland, 2014 Tui Award winners Tattletale Saints now live in Music City USA, Nashville Tennessee. With the 2020 release of their third full-length album, vocalist/guitarist Cy Winstanley and vocalist/bassist Vanessa McGowan celebrate choosing a tough path and conquering seemingly insurmountable obstacles to chase a dream. With thoughtful and minimal production, their third release showcases the duos perfectly intertwined harmony vocals and Winstanley’s clever yet emotional songwriting.
Their musicianship, while always masterful, feels relaxed on this offering, as though they no longer have to prove themselves. It is clear that Winstanley and McGowan have spent years working towards the creation of music that is organic, honest and effervescent, and with Dancing Under the Dogwoods, Tattletale Saints truly are here at last.
