Shortly after I arrived in New Zealand, I was teaching one of my classes in Critical Studies whereupon an unassuming young man got up to present his thoughts on the topic of Russ Meyer's vintage B-movie Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! one of my favorites but a long way from some of the more sedate art historical offerings in the seminar room that afternoon. I recall a couple of other students being rather appalled at the impolitic qualities of Meyer's buxom heroines racing around in cars and acting rather devilish on the whole. Fast forward and the presenter in question Mr. Daniel Boobyer has become one of Wellington's most intriguing independent musicians with a vinyl release party at Death Ray Records coming up this weekend in Newtown.
According to Death Ray's post: "Another in store, this time album release for Daniel Boobyer his new vinyl LP in store now called "Crazy Eyes," an impressive selection of 33.25rpm ghost blues, singer song writing with beats and boxing. Daniel will be performing his charming one man blues with loops on Sunday the 26th of Jan from 2pm. His first album "Time Killed the Clock" was one of Evil Genius favourites. His new album "Crazy Eyes" won't disappoint. "Crazy Eyes" by Daniel Boobyer strictly on vinyl with download for now only at Death Ray. Shit we love the heck out of independent NZ vinyl releases."
