Corrosive Moses put on a compelling, high-energy show that will get you moving. Born from a garage jam just before lockdown, the band emerged from the other side with an explosive, punchy collection of songs that draw from punk, ska, and hard rock. The songs are tight, the lyrics direct, and the hooks will leave you hoarse and wanting more.
When you take 3 ex-guys-from-the-city (Wellington and São Paulo, Brazil), now living in the quiet, tranquil Coromandel, and bring them back to the city for one of the most exciting, diverse street festivals in NZ, you get a band that are wanting to turn up and and create some noise.
Before moving to the Coromandel, Stewart Pedley (multi-instrumentalist and winner of the 2014 Original Song Competition) and Gabe Johnston played in various respective groups around Wellington. Gabe is also the former owner of Newtown’s well-known Baobab cafe. Leo Magri moved to NZ from São Paulo 7 years ago; his lively Brazilian drum influences undeniably form the solid heartbeat of Corrosive Moses. The band have already made an impact in the Auckland and Coromandel, where they were honoured to recently be asked to open the new Skate Park in Whitianga, a project 20 years in the making. They look forward to bringing their hard-hitting performance to Wellington.
If you like your music with volume, energy, and bite – music that will make you move – then Corrosive Moses is a must see.
