Ship Of Ara

Music begin to follow me then. I been trying to stop playing, thinking ‘bout preparing my soul for Jesus… Just look like I can’t put music down.

Time I get hold of one guitar and I maybe sell it to somebody, well music just come back to me and worry me so, I just have to go back and buy me another guitar…

History of the Aras, Part 2.

Groucho Kangaroo:

Groucho has been a drummer most of his life. He is a founding member of “The Cosmic Kangaroos” who have put out two tape releases, two LPs, two EPs and a couple of compilation tracks between 1987 and 1999. Although keeping a low profile for some years now, “The Cosmic Kangaroos” are still around and rehearse every Monday. After picking up guitar playing and song writing Groucho formed the duo “The Wombat Congress” with “Balsam’s”Alex Olk. They played from 1996 to 2001.

Additionally, Groucho has been the drummer of Graeme Jefferies’ “The Cakekitchen” for some months in 2006/2007 before Graeme returned to New Zealand.
