48MAY – Beach Party Animals!

At the start of 2003, four friends were drawn together by a single realisation – music should be synonymous with fun. If it’s not fun, it’s a waste of time. With this code in mind, 48May was born.

Jon Austin (vocals, guitar), Captain Hook (guitar, vocals), Jarod Brown (drums, vocals) and Shannon Brown (bass, vocals) were friends well before 48May. Hook and Jon went to school together and have been writing music together for years, while the Brown brothers are both well-known on the New Zealand music circuit for their roles in bands such as Mama Said and Tadpole. Each hailing from a different former band, every member contributes a certain musical dynamic that, combined, gives 48May its unique edge. As top New Zealand DJ Mike Puru so succinctly put it: “Sometimes a cupboard full of a mixture of ingredients can be thrown together – and the result is an amazing meal. The same applies [to] 48May”.

Described as Sum 41 meets Foo Fighters with a hint of Def Leppard, 48May will be rocking the Beach Party and have promised to dress up so get in there and check them out. We have a copy of their excellent album, “The Mad Love” to give away, so check out the comp page in this issue.

: - SPONSORED - I’ve always been a fairly lucky kid. I essentially lucked out at birth, being born white, male, heterosexual, to a well off family. My life was never going to be particularly hard. And so my tale begins, with another stroke of sheer luck. After my girlfriend sugge
