Mentals in New Zealand

Last weekend I travelled with Mental As Anything to New Zealand’s south island to play a gig at the Snapafest Festival. This was in Nelson, which is known for its fishing industry.
At Wellington airport waiting for our connecting flight to Nelson, New Zealand.

While driving from the airport to our hotel I spotted what looked like “Gilligans Island” near Nelson, NZ.

After checking into the hotel I had a walk around town. Thursday evening in downtown Nelson.

As we couldn’t take our regular guitar amps with us this was my hire amp for the gig, a piggyback Vox AC30.
