We did an interview for Radio NZ with Richard Wain just before Dave left for Nepal:
The Rainy Days first came together in 1992 as the members of Gestalt found themselves embattled in recording their 'motherlode' album and were looking for an outlet to perform live in a setting that did not require the personnel for their increasingly bizarre arrangements and strict instrumentation demanded by their principal songwriter Davy G. The drummer took the brushes, the guitar and bass went semi-acoustic and the singer took to bellowing through an orange road cone.
The Rainy Days live performances varied between teenage house parties, primary school show & tells and mostly unannounced performances at other peoples rock shows.
From an original three the line-up ballooned to somewhere over ten. Some hung on, some were lost in the confusion, some left to find the rock mountain path, some just weren't told about the next practice and others wandered in from the cold to fill the gaps.
Ten years on, 2 and a half EPs and a 7" later, that era is documented on Spongo, Mummagumma, BullyBeef+ Microchips
