The Renderizors is an off-shoot project from The Renderers, a New Zealand alt-country / rock / psych noisy band that emerged in the early 1990s based around the husband / wife songwriting team of Brian and Maryrose Crook. Together they have released seven albums and numerous singles and compilation tracks over the 20-something years.
This album was recorded with Sha Nonn and iRory (Creche) up at the old, (and now destroyed) High Street Project building in Christchurch in 2010, after playing support to Pink Reason on their New Zealand tour. The Vivid Cloud / Lucky Din name comes from the Crook’s stay in Beijing and the pieces are thematically linked. The album also includes a cover of “The Chinese Seas” written by friend, Charles Lieurance, and recorded by his band the Black Dahlias (not the big Canadian band of the same name) in the 1990s.
