(Caution: not for country or Whitney Houston fans…we are getting deeper into acts I dig here.)

If someone asks about the punk/hardcore scene in Auckland, the conversation always starts with The Bleeders.  They are West Aucklanders, the home of bogan culture.  The most similar name you will associate with this act from back home is Alexisonfire.  The Bleeders opened for them on their swing through Auckland last year.  But I don’t think they are doing a heck of a lot right now.

The most recent single, 2007’s “She Screamed She Loved Me,” made it to #12 here.  You will see a few “16” signs in the background of the video, which is the motorway heading into West Auckland and Waitakere.

“Black Widow Creeps” is from last “spring’s” (November’s) album.
