Last edited: 21.03.19 | Comment? | By











‘The Eighth Note’ is 8 quick Questions with Wellington Musicians.

A chance for us to catch up with people & see what they’re up to, or introduce you to a new musician/band and their music.

Today’s guest is SOG, who are a ‘supergroup’ made up of members of other Wgtn bands.


Who are you? Tell us a bit about your music:
SOG: James, Luke (EgoValve), Ethan, and Bianca (O-Boy). Our music initially starts as James’ emotional rants and reflections on his own life. Almost a supergroup fulla good buggers and nice-looking guitars.

What have you been working on lately? Any new tracks or albums on the way?
Yes our sophomore album is being recorded in mid April out at James’ family farm. The songs are just in the finalizing stages after being tried and tested at house parties across Welly. The bad ones were disposed of responsibly at the Happy Valley Dump.

Where is the best place people can follow you & find your music?
Our music is on Spotify and Bandcamp. We are relatively active on Facebook for all our up and coming shows!

What were the 3 most influential albums to you growing up?
Is this it: The Strokes
Elephant: The White Stripes
You’re a woman I’m a machine: Death from above 1979.

Which other Wellington musician (s) would you most like to work with?
Ursula Le Sin and Ludus.

What is your favourite Wellington venue to play in?
San Fran, Moon, Majoribanks Funhouse.

In your songwriting or composing (or the band’s songwriting) how do the compositions and songs take shape?
Often 2min in the microwave, turnover and repeat. They typically start with James writing the lyrics and basic structure on the bass. Then the rest of the band collaborate and arrange their own parts.

Where/when is your next gig?
Our next gig is at Moon bar on the 21st of March.
