Wandering Oak brings you:
• Holiday Ghosts • (PNKSLM Recordings)
Originally starting out as a solo project from Sam Stacpoole of The Black Tambourines, the band evolved into a partnership with Katja Rackin and flowered into a full band sporting the primitive rock ’n’ roll chops of The Modern Lovers and The Velvet Underground, alongside winsome boy/girl counterpoint vocals from Katja and Sam.
The sophomore Holiday Ghosts LP West Bay Playroom sees the band refine their sound, with Stacpoole and Rackin being joined by Ryan Cleave on bass and Charlie Fairbairn on guitar, offering a cleaner and more focused set of songs while breaking new ground and experimenting with influences from country, blues, spaghetti western soundtracks and more.

• The Da Da’s •
Newly christened the Da Da’s are a hot gumbo of rock n roll, 60′s psych, gypsy folk, outlaw country and surf flavours that have been on a slow simmer since their first shows last year, including slots under their old guise of Wandering Stranger with Scott Yoder and The Asteroid No.4. Expect a cooking set with great tunes, stinging guitar, rumbling bass grooves and holistic harmonies all pinned down with a back beat to get ya feet moving!
