Watch the latest in our music video showcase series, What Was That Thing? Here we have Vera Ellen who performed their song, Telegram 2 live at the Flying Nun shop here in Newtown, Wellington. If you like what you see/hear, you can order the Vera's album It's Your Birthday here.
This song received an early and very enthusiastic review from Auckland's number one tastemasker, Matthew 'Crawdaddy' Crawley who said “Who the heck would win in a three-way street fight between The Velvet Underground, Courtney Barnett, and Pavement?...Vera Ellen has bottled the fun of all three, adding a few extra secret herbs and spices to create what I believe is the ULTIMATE SONG."
Over the past year we've had artists we like come in and perform live music for us at the Flying Nun shop. These are mostly local alternative, indie, electronic, folk, experimental, live performing bands and solo artists. Video filmed, edited and recorded by Lochie Noble and Ben Howe.
The performance was filmed and recorded live at the Flying Nun Records shop, located in Wellington, New Zealand (NZ) The store sells vinyl LPs, CDs, t-shirts, merchandise and other music items.
