Sandpaper Regroup for Annual Session

Sandpaper Regroup for Annual Session

Who: Sandpaper, Hightower, Rahtze
Where: Wickham Park Hotel
Author: Jade Lazarevic
When: Saturday June 23, 2001

Defunct Newcastle group Sandpaper will return on Saturday night when they perform at the Wickham Park Hotel during a special gig.

The three members of Sandpaper, Anthony Dean, Geoff Mullard and Andrew Macdonald, will re-form for an annual performance.

Members of Sandpaper have all moved on to perform in the latest breed of Newcastle groups such as the Pornskars, Cabin Fever and Dirt Picnic. Also on the bill is Favours For Each Other who play an extensive number of original tracks and covers from artists such as The Pixies, Beck, Primus and strangely enough, ABBA. The quirkiness doesn't end there with the group singing about anything from martians and dogs to cookies.

The group have supported Something For Kate, Machine Gun Fellatio and the Celibate Rifles. Sydney group Rahtze will also play at the hotel, accompanied by melodic two-piece Hightower.
