Type II are bare bones rock. They won't use auto tune and they will sweat a lot on stage. And they will swear! Just as it should be.
Originating in the underground Wellington scene, they have made a name for themselves on the live circuit, and backed it up in 2014 with their debut 8 track release, available on iTunes.
Mark Earl, James Jobe and Tim Raddich make up the permanent members of the band.
The Southern Collective
The label's genesis act, originally named Jack's Collective.
The re-release and re-branding of the album which started everything is aimed at breathing fresh life into the label's founding act.
With literally hundreds of live shows to his name, Jack is more focused on the success of the label these days, but he feels there's no need to neglect the one that started it all.
Re-branded as Welcome To My Somersault Factory, watch for the relaunch on iTunes.
