The Official "Turn the Tables" - Music Video | The Neo-Kalashnikovs

Hi guys

I'm excited to present the official music video for The Neo-Kalashnikovs song "Turn the Tables",
which was directed, shot and edited by our mum Ruth Bioletti whose done an amazing job.
I'm really stoked with how the video has turned out and how we all pulled together to get this video made independently. I really like how the new video reflects the bands "Do-It-Yourself" ethos and celebrates how Radio Hauraki were the first station to put the band on the national airwaves in NZ.

Also a big shout out to our sponsors; Thievery Studio for allowing us to shot the video at their space, Nick Von K for generously supplying us with his amazing jewellery and First Scene for the old-skool props.

We're going to be sending the video off to Juice TV really soon and hope to get some spins on the telly so cross your fingers and hope for the best!

The Video Release Party is happening tomorrow night at Juice Bar
22nd of November starts at 8pm:

A Tribute to New Zealand Artist - Adam Tan

I'm Sending this one out to my old classmate and friend Adam Tan a very talented young artist from Auckland. I didn't know him as well as I should've but I know that he was a gentle person with a lot of time for others and had a great sense of humour and good laugh. This piece of his is called:

Natmada the Exiled - Observer of Truth, Caster of Illusions

"I’m excited to finally share my character for Light Grey Art Lab’s Rolemodels exhibition and card game.

I wanted my fantasy rpg alter-ego to be an extension of myself. The costume is based off of my regular clothing and the armour reflects different aspects of my personality. It was a fun and interesting process designing him to reflect the rl me. I put in a lot of effort to ensure that every detail meant something and I hope that it shows in the final artwork." ~ Adam Tan

All his art can be viewed via the link above

I'm totally blown away by all his amazing art he  created. What an imaginative and creative person! Rest in peace buddy your going to be missed a lot

How About Now?!


"That's the shit I'm talking 'bout though, like you changed up, you don't even fuckin' link nobody no more, you just dash me 'way like a cyattie. Yo, you cheesed me dog."

Always felt like my vision been bigger than the bigger picture
Crazy how you gotta wait until it's dark out to see who really with you
Crazy how even when it miss ya, shit'll come back around and get ya
Crazy like all my niggas, crazy like all my niggas
Remember I deleted all my other girls numbers out the phone for you?
Remember when you had to take the BAR exam, I drove in the snow for you
Yeah, you probably don't remember half the shit a nigga did for you

Ya, you ain't really fuck with me way back then girl, how 'bout now?
Cause I'm up right now and you stuck right now
Aw, you thought you had it all figured out back then girl, how 'bout now?
Cause I'm up right now and you stuck right now
Yeah, you thought the little effort that you put in was enough girl, how 'bout now?
Yeah, Girl how 'bout now? How 'bout now girl?
What about now girl? How 'bout now?

Yeah, Always been daddy's little angel
I bought your dad a bunch of shit for Christmas, he ain't even say thank you
I had no money, left from back when I was focused on the music
I used to always try and burn you CDs of my new shit
You be like "who's this?"
I be like "me, girl."
You be like "oh word, true shit?"
Then ask if we could listen to Ludacris
Them car rides made me feel like I was losing it
Yeah, made me feel like I ain't have it like that,
I was average like that
Started drinking way more than I used to
People form habits like that, girl
Yeah, man enough to tell you I was hurt that year
I'm not even Christian I still went to church that year
Guess I just had to pretend that year
I ain't even see my friends that year
Places that I should've been
You ain't really fuck with me way back then but how 'bout now?

Cause I'm up right now and you stuck right now
Aw, you thought you had it all figured out back then girl, how 'bout now?
Cause I'm up right now and you stuck right now
Yeah, you thought the little effort that you put in was enough girl, how 'bout now?
Girl how 'bout now? How 'bout now girl?
What about now girl? How 'bout now?

F Sharp Minor Guitar Riff - The Neos

Here's a Riff I just recorded that reminds me off Green Day and is in Tom Petty's go to key
he made some of his biggest songs in! Dad played his old-skool Aria guitar with Humbuckers through a Fender Stage Lead 100 watt amp (no pedals). The Mic I used was a sE z3300a in Omni-directional mode (15 cms away) close to the amp capturing some of the sweet room acoustics.
