Yesterday we lost our brother – Shifty Puke aka Lua Macrag – after fighting hard against a shitty deal with bravery and humour. A ball of fun with a little bit of the divil in him, leaving many happy memories – techno dancing in Dodgy’s lounge instead of practicing, opting for an all you can drink deal at the Cabana instead of taking cash (and coming out on top), the “world tour” of Melbourne and getting a video on Aussie TV and radio (while in the pub), playing weddings, pubs, backyards, restaurants, Steampunk balls, school concerts and always sounding disreputable but having a ball. Lua had a great set of pipes – he could nail difficult songs like Anchor Me, Come Together or Into the Mystic and lay waste to Where’s Me Jumper and especially Windows Printer Tester Page. Not one for practice – often asking “what are the chords for this?” just before going onstage, but could light up a room and command a stage.
Lua we will miss you so much but loved your company while you were with us. Arohanui to Anna and the whanau. Go well – the Pukes
