About Needless Cane:
Born of the ashes of a former project, frontman Needless and bassist Ruby went on to create the band Needless Cane. Surviving countless line-up changes with only N. Cane remaining as the constant member (Ruby was not to reunite with the band until mid-2012), the band quickly became the torch bearer for alternative music in its hometown of Timaru.
Following the reunion with former Omega drummer Emlyn James (The Grem), things took a new turn when Cane hooked up with bassist turned guitarist Morgandrogyny. Together the horrible trio would explore new territory in gothic industrial metal in their new hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
Needless Cane has fulfilled a few goals since living in Wellington, with the release of the band’s latest EP ‘The Sun Did Not Shine’ also the amazing S&M filled surreal tea party music video that was ‘Hemlock Lemonade’ and a couple of tours.
The band has plans to get in the studio to work on their debut album and has hopes to venture outside of New Zealand and spread their Black Plague to international waters.
‘Noir’ (EP) July 2011
‘The Sun Did Not Shine’ (EP) October 2013
