Boxcar GuitarsLamplight ep

Boxcar Guitars have proved to be one of Auckland’s most popular and hard working indie alt-country live bands ,supporting the likes of Gomez, Evan Dando, Jay Farrar, Bonnie Prince Billy and Lambchop – not to mention a whole host of local luminaries ranging from the Checks to the Bats. Benny Boxcar (guitar, vocals), Marcus Joyce (bass) and Kari Hammond (drums) go way back to high school days, jam sessions and general noisy garage misbehavior. However, as time progressed, they developed a love of American roots music, in the forms of Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and "...country music from the late '40s, blues from the depression era, rock n roll from the '50s”. This new musical misunderstanding - combined with the addition of pedal steel guitar player John Segovia (no relation) - saw the band develop their own stripped back and timeless flavour. This is described by Boxcar Benny as “the sound of a great big racket box rumbling along”. And while rumbling along with the Boxcar Guitars is what it is all about, that doesn’t exclude the band members from other interesting musical activities. Boxcar Benny tours (and is recording a new album) with Bic Runga, and added beautiful guitar atmospherics and a song to Florian Habict’s excellent film “Kaikohe Demolition”. Marcus also plays bass in the thundering Demi Whores, as does Kari – who also drummed in the Bloody Souls (now), Tokey Tones and the Brunettes (then). John is currently also playing music with Don McGlashan.
