As of late, New Zealand-born, but New York-based singer, instrumentalist and producer Dion Lunadon has been thrashing out his own fiercely unapologetic and energized take on noise rock.
One informed by the fuzzy Auckland garage bands he grew up around, and the visceral potential offered by post-punk.
This all comes through loud and clear on the self-titled album he released halfway through 2017 via Agitated Records. It’s a fierce statement from a musician in his early 40s, who will not, in any way, shape or form, go quietly into the good night.
When he isn’t working on his own music, or sessioning, Dion plays bass with longstanding American noise-rockers A Place To Bury Strangers, a gig that tells you everything you need to know about his prowess.
