The Vietnam War

About the Artist

The Vietnam War are Auckland's first real country rebels.

Just in time for the Rugby World Cup - the debut album of The Vietnam War.

Yes…in all its technicoloured glory, the landless heroes of New Zealand's art wasteland.

Signed to Round Trip Mars, these persevering working class beauties: pizza delivery, guitar teaching, labouring, carpenters, dead end jobs, dole queues, hangovers, housewives- are all distilled into their self titled album.

They are influenced by closed curtains, fuzz bass, harmonica, country music, doo wop rock n roll, old guitars, warm tubes, vintage 60s drums, day time TV morphine ballads, minding their own business, anxiety, sleeplessness - all sorts.

The Vietnam War are a five piece band making honest guitar music in isolation.
