It was 1983, my school certificate year… I cbought my first ever import record from a store in Timaru where we lived, not a good record store like you’d find in a city… a shitty one that for some crazy reason had this one record.
It was a great listen and allowed me to finally hear so many artists I’d only read and dreamt about…  on it was this particular song

 
Two swans in front of his eyes
Colored balls in front of his eyes
It’s number one for his Kelly’s eye
Treble-six right over …

I have a thing (understatement) for the Eastern Front during the Second World War… a fascination, obsession and lifelong interest in the history of this huge conflict which sealed the fate for Hitler’s Germany.
My interest introduced me to Shostakovich and his  Seventh Symphony written while he endured the siege of Leningrad – officially claimed as a representation of the people of Leningrad’s brave resistance to the German invaders and an authentic piece of patriotic art at a time when morale needed boosting.

This weekend I didn’t trust my instincts and bought a one day pass …

I adore Jonathon Bree’s voice…

when he and wife Princess Chelsea do a duo it makes me very happy

 
 
I remember when at Amplifier we all went bananas for this song, good times

I think Lil Chief Records should be hailed in the same way people wank on about Flying Nun… and I’m glad they don’t
 
Obligatory hit

Spectacle, beats… Wink
An oldie but a goodie as they say… comments are good for LOLz
It’s very clear these knuckleheads have no idea who Josh Wink is. Maybe I’m just getting old. Notice how well he beat matches yet he does not wear Dre Beats headphones. He wears Pioneer because that’s what he is. He’s a Pioneer

For the chitownheadz get the SmartBar takeover of Rinse (scroll down)

What would we be like if the era of sampling hadn’t happened?
 

This would be our reality… all day every bloody day
 

Life’s grim man!

I was driving to the supermarket the other day, as ya do, and I was listening to a CD – one of 4 I’ve unearthed for car time listening. I have a lot of CDs, many many boxes filled… I hate them, it was always a rubbish format and one that I do not mourn for a fucking second! I do however have a shit ton of the damn things… and on so many is music that is very important to me… music that define me and complimented my life …

Fat bastards!

Gots to know your history

As a boy this song/video had me transfixed

Unlike the above this song has always been and always will be awesome

If disclosure brought you here. You wasn’t an original garage raver.

Top Cat

Just get in line in your mind, getting ready to rip

Been revisiting this number of late, its great

When will the madness stop

The Clean were the first South Island-based post-punk group to gain a national following, on the back of a brace of instantly memorable songs including ‘Tally Ho’, ‘Anything Could Happen’, ‘Beatnik’ and ‘Getting Older’…

About to be inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame, Dunedin band The Clean prefer to look forward rather than back…

“It’s a strange thing dealing with other people’s perception of your music and what you stand for as a band.”

A hugely important band in NZ music and this week they will be inaugurated to the …
