Watch the latest in our music video showcase series, What Was That Thing? Here we have Night Lunch who performed their song, Double Bo 2 live at the Flying Nun Records shop here in Newtown, Wellington.
Night Lunch are an Ōtepoti (Dunedin) based band that fill every corner of any room with just two instruments; drums, a double stringed diddley bow. Liam Hoffman takes care of business on the drums and Liam Clune is behind his home-made diddly bow.
Their live performances, like this What Was That Thing? video, are high intensity, bottom-end, fuzzed out experiences and often feature both lyrics and banter that is actually entertaining.
Double Bo 2 is an unique offering whereby this fearsome duo utilise not one but TWO diddley bows - surely that is an Aotearoa first?! The band manage to pull this stunt off in style, although things do get a little hairy towards the end. Watch it here.
