Original originals trio are back


A Queenstown indie rock trio are back touring with their original line-up. 

High-energy punk rockers Eddie Ledderhead kick off a mini four-date southern tour in Queenstown tomorrow. 

The original threesome of frontman and guitarist ‘Electric’ Emmett McCarthy, bassist Masa ‘Attack’ Hattori and drummer Dan Pugsley have decided to take advantage of Queenstown’s quieter shoulder season to hit the road. 

Pugsley returned in January after a year away in Canada and is happy to be back playing, saying they were using his drum kit while he was away. 

“I solidified my spot in the band by buying my own drum kit.” 

The band of four years mainly plays originals but Pugsley says they’ll throw in a few cheeky covers at the local gig at Red Rock bar. 

Catch Eddie Ledderhead at Red Rock tomorrow from 10pm
