The Checks

  • Saturday 26 November 2011

95bFM and Volume Magazine present The Checks Deadly Summer Sway album release show.

“…the list of bands that New Zealanders The Checks have supported is an almost embarrassing name-check of some of the biggest superstar groups you could imagine — ACDC, Oasis and REM being the most honorable mentions.”  — Chris Yates, TimeOff, Australia, 2010.

Not to mention … The Hives, Muse, Black Rebel Motor Cycle Club, The Killers, Jet, The Hold Steady, Turbo Fruits, The Rakes, Florence and the Machine and Maximo Park…

From day one, The Checks have combined their unique sound (a blend of rock ’n’ roll, pop, blues psychedelia, overdriven quirky guitar riffs, and a dash of dub) with an unlimited source of raw energy, harnessed by their music and spilt into their audience. Their catalogue of dance provoking songs consistently drives the show into a frenzy whether it’s from the corner of your living room, King Tut’s in Glasgow or the Cake Tin in Wellington.
