Love the Echo Ohs - they played a great show at the Darkroom earlier in the year. Get out and get a copy of their 7" You Don't Mind / The Gnarl - in either orange or blue on white hand printed sleeves - while they last.
Here's some footage from a 2015 95bFM Breakfast Club session.
Good news, it's been recovered - there will be more Terminals!
Oh, and Dark Matter will play again this week as part of launch of Cheap Thrills II. the second edition of the magazine which is documenting and celebrating all the great music - then and now - being made in the Garden City.
And why not, here's that great Terminals' track from their first album, Uncoffined
There's much cool stuff also unfolding in the Garden City - try this tonight, Good Vibrations a FREE sound artists party at the Art Gallery which includes Michael Morley, Instant Fantasy, New Dawn (Indy Force and Anita Clark duo) and Skew-whiff MD and Mr Christopher Stone.
Did I say Michael Morley...also, tomorrow evening, a rare outing by those 'grand old men of meaningless noise', the Dead C at that growing live venue of choice, the Lyttelton Coffee Company - the Dead C with Greg Malcolm.
This is off-topic but nevertheless musically related.
Going back to the recent Nowhere! Festival, some of you may have been and seen the Terminals on the Sat night. I was by good chance there too. To cut to the chase, singer Stephen Cogle's treasured songbook vanished after their set. It was full of lyrics, notes, arrangements etc for Dark Matter and recent Terminals' songs. Stephen referred to it throughout as the night's track list. It was A5-size, fattish.
Did anyone by chance see it or know of its fate? It disappeared somewhere between the Whammy stage and equipment storage at Audio Foundation. He'd dearly love to get it back.Let me know or get in touch directly with Stephen if you know him (I don't think he's on PA.)

One report is from a family whose daughter Alisha (who has FSHD - a form of muscular dystrophy) who had her all important iPad stolen. Makes you sick.
The Simpsons predicted President Trump 16 years ago as ‘a warning to America it was going insane'''. In an episode called Bart to The Future, the Simpsons predicted (16 years ago) 'the tycoon would become leader of the free world'
