Graham Panther

Graham Panther is best known as a member of New Zealand’s globe-trotting Ruby Suns, and as the front man for Panther and the Zoo.

Joining the mass emigration to Australia, Panther’s latest incarnation features the talents of John Parker (The Brunettes, Panther and the Zoo) and Ed Castelow (Dictaphone Blues), drumming and producing respectively.

Somehow this bare bones outfit delivers the most muscular, fuzz-rock fuelled emanation of Panther’s songs yet, mixing the usual kiwi ‘studio boudoir’ approach with the high tech wizardry of Auckland’s The Lab.

Panther’s latest release ‘Oh Industry’ is a five-track trip around those three pillars of polite conversation – life, love, and the creeping collective terror of climate change.
