Rave Reviews!

// May 18th, 2005 // Life, Music

A great review for the Phoenix Foundation’s Pegasus that appeared in the Sunday Star Times.

Diverse and perverse – the new album from Wellington’s Phoenix Foundation seals its reputation as the best band in the country…

Ever loved a band so much it hurts? So much that you want to sing its praises to anyone who’ll listen? So much that if you were still a spotty adolescent you’d be writing its name on your pencil case? Then you’ll know I feel about Wellington’s Phoenix Foundation, a beardy band of under-stated and under-rated country-punk synth-rock pioneers who are, in my view, destined for greatness.

Read the full article or just buy the new album! I’ve been playing it non-stop, it really is astoundingly brilliant.

PS I like to think that the continual exposure of young Samuel to Madonna, Prince, the Bangles and Wham! also played a part in his musical development…
