Hello friends. Long time no write. I love this simple direct old school blog way and we are also linking instagram so it’s soon gonna be possible to add videos and stills to this blog (more easily) including your input . Follow along on IG
The new album which took two months to record and mix down in Lyttelton and Diamond harbour is now physically in stock and we just pushed the button on the 12 inch record release….
My first record since 1987. This one is either a good listen or a good investment or both. The skills of producers Jan Bille and Ian McAllister exceeded expectations. Very happy with Happy Isles.
If ya wanna make an album talk to these guys first. Audio Centric IG
OK so here’s the plan. How about I turn up and play at your place. Big house or small. Anywhere at all. Invite me and your buddies and let’s move these records before the bailiffs do. This project took a lot of work and a pile of loans which need to be paid.
In other words. Call me now 021 0259 2919 and invite me to launch Happy Isles at yours. It’s gonna work but only if you guys get behind it. Very confident you will!
Have a listen to the whole album below.
If you live outside NZ we can ship the album to you. Some notes on shipping over here and bandcamp has a table for the main countries.

If you pickup a copy of the album where Luke is playing and want to pay online this button below is the best way to pay if you don’t have cash. It misses out the delivery fees. Also – once we have your email address we can send you a download code. It still uses PayPal so we don’t see your card details and they are kept safe 🙂Buy Happy Isles Vinyl $40 (NZD)
