The Furys: Auckland Fun - 25th Anniversary Show
By Alistair Wickens
The Furys play good old fashioned rockíníroll, and they play it damn well. ĎAuckland Funí is testament to their longevity, being a live recording of their 25th anniversary show. Okay, they havenít been playing together solidly for all that time, having only played a handful of shows since the early 90s, but the fact they can get together and play a gig this good speaks for itself. The show was actually recorded in 2004 and is a strong collection of covers and originals penned by frontman Dave McLean. The covers span from Dr Feelgood to Elvis and include the classic Animalís track We Gotta Get Outta This Place. Despite their age, and the vintage of many of their songs, the band stills plays well together. Should they reform for a 30th anniversary The Furys would be worth checking out.
