Interview: Mini Simmons

Posted by Eleanor Newnham


A meeting with a dumpy tarot card reader on the side of the road in Central America led to the birth of a new band. Mini Simmons are bringing the look and sound of the late 1960s into modern-day Aotearoa.

They've just dropped their debut album, which happens to be the first vinyl pressed in New Zealand since 1987 (thanks to Holiday Records) and are about to embark on a headlining touring across NZ. Radio BurgerFuel's Lee Densem talked to Zak & Jesse Hawkins and Yoni Yahel about their inspirations, how they used to take turns writing music in an old rental car, and what to expect from their live show.
