‘Tiddabadés - The Most Mispronounced Band In The Southern Hemisphere (TM)

Their recently released debut e.p has sold out over four times, attracting rave reviews from MTV & USA’s Hype Machine amongst others :

‘Tiddabadés Had One Of The Strongest Reponses To Date Via Hype Machine Out Of Hundred Of Artists We’ve Featured Over Several Years’ – Charles Stepcyzk, Insomnia Radio (USA).

Tiddabadés Have Recorded A Debut E.P That Serves Notice That A Band That Began As Nothing Serious Needs To Be Taken Seriously!’ – MTV New Zealand

‘Highly Recommended – A Captivating E.P’ – www.Stuff.co.nz

‘Top Production, Clever Arrangements, A Local Band Worthy Of Praise!’ – www.thekitchensink.co.nz

Since Inception In 2008, They Have Been Raising Their Profile By Playing As Many Gigs As Humanly And Physically Possible Around New Zealand Earning Esteemed Plaudits Along The Way. They have featured in blogs as far away as Tokyo (www.topmusic.jp), America (Record. Pause. Play & Insomnia radio) and UK (Big In Wigan).

It’s true, their live show is not to be missed :

‘Tiddabadés Have Prepared A Powerpoint Presentation Of How To Unfold Your Arms, Nod Your Head, And Start Mashing Some Potatoes Right The F**k Now. They Are Best Served Live, Loud And Half Cut’ – Vice Magazine NZ’

‘The ADD-Like Charm Of Their Influences Translates To A Hardcore Sweat Fest Live Show..........Delivered In A Way That Tells You That They Never Want To Lose This Immediacy' - Real Groove Magazine

They conducted a five city 15 date tour of Japan in September 2010 (see press file) representing NZ at the Kansai Music Conference, Osaka. Tiddabadés have also completed many national NZ tours and finished runners up in MTV’s 42 Below Unheard competition. Future plans include recording and releasing their debut album in 2011, an appearance at SXSW 2011, and a tour of the US West Coast and New York on the back of American label interest.
