With a similar sound to Flaming Lips, Badly Drawn Boy, Pink Floyd, The Happy Mondays, Gorillaz, Pond, Jarvis Cocker, Early Split Enz, and Early Genesis.
Radius Kink’s live show are reminiscent of the ‘Old School’, live performances of Patty Smith, Joan Jett and Janis Joplin
The performing members of Radius Kink, Gary Hendrikse, Dawn Hendrikse, Tim Busby and Steve Kirkeby are all based in Christchurch, New Zealand and play at various live music venues such as The Wunderbar, The Darkroom, Alvarados, Sullivans, New Brighton Festival, and Finnegans.
Rooted in music as far back as the fifties and sixties. Radius Kink’s Albums; Orange Room, Eulogy and Lobotomy are influenced by David Bowie, Neil Young, Queen, Elton John, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Joan Jett, and Patti Smith .The results are intelligent blendings of open string acoustic rhythm guitar with punchy bass lines and complex vocal harmonies. The result is moody, lyrically brilliant and leaves the listener with a sense of musical déjà vu.
The musical history of this team spans the last three decades with their current collaboration stronger and tighter than ever.
