Pass the really BIG can of Raid please hunny
2nd entry [in mellow mix volumes] for the fantastic New Zealand group, Weta, last fearured in Mellow Mix Volume 1 #039. So, what has happened since then ... and what [wtf] happened to Weta after their break-up in 2001?
Much loved Kiwi rock act Weta - who had several radio hits in 2000 including Calling On and Got the Ju - had reformed for two November [2008] tour dates. The band, fronted by Aaron Tokona, broke up shortly after releasing their debut album, Geographica. Their Wikipedia site says the band split because Tokona "stopped believing that I was doing what I really wanted to do".

But in a blog posted on Stuff.co.nz in July, Weta's drummer Clinton den Heyer hinted the band were considering making a comeback for summer. "Who knows - maybe we could get the opportunity to drop a second difficult album and have everyone slate it," den Heyer said. It continues a trend for Kiwi acts to reform lately, following Supergroove, Garageland and the Headless Chickens. Weta play Auckland's Galatos on November 20 and Wellington's San Francisco Bath House on November 21 [2008]. ~ [Source: stuff.co.nz]
2009? .. Following this mini tour they announced they were all committed to a second album, after a break of 8 years --- only to break up shortly before recording, feeling "too old.". One new live song was played during their reunion tour, however there are no plans to release this new material. ~ [Source: Wikipedia]
