About the Artist

The gigantic news for 2009 is Freddy's shaking loose with second studio album Dr Boondigga & The Big BW.

The sophomore album has been worth the wait - shipping Gold on release in NZ, hitting Platinum in four days and landing the Number 1 spot on the NZ Music Album Charts for five weeks straight.

With a solid running time of seventy minutes, Dr Boondigga & The Big BW features nine tracks of indefinable music - born from Freddy’s live jams, fantastic voyages & many hours of beat reduction & sonic fine tuning.

Toby Chang enthuses that “we’ve absorbed a few influences along the way – Berlin bashment, Portuguese top forty, Tooting Bhangra Beat and Montmartre TV shop Techno Hi-Life”.

Fat Freddy Drop won Best Producer for Dr Boondigga & The Big BW in the technical award categories of this year's New Zealand Music Awards while artist Otis Frizzell was nominated for Best Album Cover and Fitchie for Best Engineer in the recently announced technies. Plus we've picked up four nominations, Album of The Year, Best Group, Best Aotearoa Roots Album and People's Choice Award, to be announced at the 44th annual music awards main event in October - the very same awards Freddy's won in 2005 for Based On A True Story.

 

 

Dr Boondigga & The Big BW is available now from our Merch Tent and in-store NZ and Australia. Dr Boondigga has reached Czech, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium Denmark, Norway, Netherlands and UK. Hitting USA late soon.

Too much Freddy’s!
