Last night, The Schizophonics performed their first Auckland show at the beloved underground venue, Whammy Bar to a packed and frantic audience overtaken by the sheer energy and force from the San Diego fuzz-rock band.

Watching Pat Beers move on stage was like chasing a whirlwind of crashing sound and unpredictable motion. Past comparisons of his moves to a mix of Jimi Hendrix and James Brown is spot on but still a wonder to see in true form on a live stage.

Lety Beers kept up the beat which became the anchor point for Pat to hurl himself (and guitar) all around the small space.
