Violent Femmes eponymous debut from 1983 was the soundtrack for so many of our teen years. It was – and still remains - a firm favourite and a very influential record with its rugged pop sensibility and themes of alienation, isolation, sexual frustration and angst.

Violent Femmes have continued to release great albums, and for their return to New Zealand shores they come with a brand new album - their 10th - Hotel Last Resort, which resides among the band’s finest work, simultaneously refining and redefining their one-of-a-kind take on American music.

The album merges front porch folk, post-punk, spiritual jazz, country blues, avant-garde minimalism and golden age rock ‘n’ roll into something still altogether their own.
