ANDREW LONDON TRIO

Wednesday 11 October 7.30pm
Royal Wanganui Opera House


Subtle and occasionally subversive satirical songs about the trivia and minutiae of daily life from the point of view of a middle-aged, middle-class, Middle Earther, delivered in a deceptively innocuous 1940s swing style with occasional forays into folk, blues, country and hip-hop.

This trio carries on in the tradition of Hot Club Sandwich, who have toured extensively throughout New Zealand since the early 1990s, enabling singer/songwriter Andrew London to gather material from the shearing sheds of Southland to the corporate boardrooms of Queen Street.

Themes cover the gamut from pretentious socialites, male insecurity and modern parenthood to driving habits, rugby culture and the depredations of ageing.

The obvious opportunity for humour in these themes is eagerly seized upon and exploited mercilessly, but occasional poignancy and pathos are never far away. Beatle-esque vocal harmonies are added by Kirsten London on bass, and ex-HCS sax/clarinetist Nils Olsen.
