On July 16th it's a rock and roll rumble at The Brewery, featuring two of New Zealand's finest exponents of the one-man-band artform: Stomping Nick and Boss Christ. The show will be recorded live for future audio and video releases.

Both of these artists have mastered playing all their instruments simultaneously to create sounds that usually require up to 3 or 4 people. They share a common love of blues, country and dirty rock and roll garage bands.

Christchurch-based Stomping Nick Jackman has been impressing many people lately with his harmonica-driven blues trash. He travels the common ground between punk, country and the classic Chicago and Memphis boogie of the 1950s. In November 2010, he released his debut album, Punk Blues One Man Band, receiving excellent reviews. One reviewer describing Stomping Nick's act opined, “Remember the snippet of a street musician from U2's Rattle and Hum doing Freedom For My People? Well, this is like that. On acid!”

Boss Christ was recently described by one music critic as having a voice that makes Tom Waits sound like Hayley Westenra. To categorise his wild and primitive country tunes a new musical genre had to be created: Monsterbilly. Boss has had several releases on the Stink Magnetic label and is credited as being the star of New Zealand's first werewolf movie. His songs reflect many of the things that are important in his life, such as tractors, beer and having a good time.

The pair first met in 2007 when Boss Christ toured the South Island as part of a Stink Magnetic one-man-band revue. Since then, they have played several shows together, including a mini-tour of the North Island in 2010, when Boss Christ's young family came along for the ride. “It's a great pleasure and privilege to be playing another show with the Boss” says Jackman. “We always have a great time together and the audience does too. Usually there's lots of dancing, yelling and spilling of beer... and it's not just Boss Christ doing it all either."
