Puppet initially formed in May 2004 with all band members having previously been in Tacit.

Live shows
The band have gigged extensively in Auckland with some rare excursions to Te Awamutu (March 2005),
Silverdale for FarmFest (April 2006) and Mangahwai Tavern (March 2007). They have also played acoustic,
unplugged shows in Devenport (x1) and Titirangi (x3).

Puppet live shows have become notorious for the bands ability to plateau melodic compositions and create
moving soundscapes that build towards an experience bordering on the epic. The instrumentation and vocals
are as capable of elegant, ethereal beauty as they are at raw, hard rocking. And the shows are a lot of fun too.

In June 2008 the band were invited to participate in the International Emergenza festival (www.emergenza.net)
and have made it through to the NZ semi-finals scheduled to be played in October 2008.

Recordings
May 2005 : Puppet self-released a single (demo) cd, 'She Said', which also contained some bonus live 'in-the-
studio' tracks recorded at the Killing Rooms in 2004.
July 2006 : An entire live show at the Kings Arms Tavern (Auckland) was recorded and the live tracks were
remastered by Shaun Toole in Houston, Texas.
November 2006 : The band recorded demos of ‘Just a little’ and ‘Go’ at The Rock Factory. Recording and
mixing were done by Michelle Klaessens.
February 2007 : The band were interviewed on KiwiFM and played an acoustic version of ‘Tacit’ live in the
studio.
March 2007 : The band recorded their entire repetoire of 15 songs live at The Rock Factory. Recording/ mix by
Mark Rawstron. A master mix of ‘Little Lullabies’ was co-produced with Michelle Klaessens.
October 2007 : The mixed version of ‘Just a little’ was included on 272 Records compilation cd “Riot on Sunset
Volume 6” and is available via amazon.com. This compilation was distributed to many US College radio
stations.
June 2008 : The band were interviewed by Fleur Jack on KiwiFM and played an acoustic version of ‘Little
Lullabies’ live in the studio.
