The Braxton Hicks (II)
The Braxton Hicks were formed as a two-piece band featuring Joel Flyger (vocals, guitar) and Mack Lynn (drums), but from late 2006 became a three-piece with the inclusion of Mitch Currin (bass). They released a four track EP titled It's what you used to do in 2006, won the regional Smokefree Rockquest competition, and made the top-12 in the national competition. Rain Song is included on the Smokefree Rockquest 2006 CD.
In early 2008 the band recieved a New Zealand on Air Recording Artist Grant, which they used to record the song Fake, with video directed by Luke McPake.
Flyger went on to Auckland outfit Popstrangers.
