3 - Blackbird are Juan Carlos Miranda, N?stor Mut, Joan Rius and Xavier Oll?, four Catalans from Viladecans, Spain, who move between indie and power pop. They have been playing venues for almost a decade with bands like Top Models, Tachenko and Fist, among others. With a couple of demos being handed around, the Catalans have managed to purify a nervous, sharp sound which at times sounds like Dinosaur Jr and at others like Jane's Addiction.
4 - A band formed in 1988 by Tony and Chip Kinman, late of the Dils and Rand And File. They released 3 eponymous albums before changing genre and becoming the Kinman Brothers.
5 - A Sydney based band. They released an EP named Trimmings in 2005.
6 - A powerpop band from Los Angeles, CA, consisting of Arlie,Shawn,Gabe and Michael. Instrumental power, strong hooks, melodic, raw, fun. This is what great rock n roll used to be but was somehow abandoned. Blackbird recaptured it for a long overdue reintroduction.

A summer project for original members Hamish Pinkham and Kyle Bell, has now turned into more than just a hobby with regular performances at some of NZ's festival events and regular tours with international artists such as Bedouin Soundclash (Canada) and Bonjah (Australia). Each summer ?The Birds? - as they are often called ? meet up with new tunes and ideas which express each individual's flavour and influence and apply it to the flocks of chicks that attend. Blackbird has slowly been establishing a solid loyal fanbase with a collection of soulful Folk songs which encapture the influence of the East Coast and all that the lifestyle brings.
