Terrific news that Slow Boat homeboys and all round thoroughly excellent rock band The Phoenix Foundation have scooped the three NZ Music Awards technical awards they were so far nominated for for their recent 'Buffalo' opus, with the band themselves winning best producer, knob-twiddler extraordinaire Lee Prebble winning best engineer, and designer Paul Johnson winning best album cover for the wonderful sleeve. And thus, a neat segue into a quick mention that we here at Slow Boat, your caring, sharing local independent store, still has copies of said award-winning opus on beautiful LP vinyl. The pictures are bigger! The sound is warmer! And available EXCLUSIVELY from us here at t'Boat... Congratulations to everyone involved in making this wonderful record - possibly their best in a catalogue that contains virtually no fluff!!! We are thrilled to have played our small part... "I am the buffalo... I am the mammal you adore...!" - the PF's - the only band to have played a Slow Boat instore not once, but TWICE...!
