    But who the hell is Iggy Azalea (with the most improbable name)?

    Maybe 'A hard rain's gonna fall' might be more appropriate?

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Original Beats, in reply to Robyn Gallagher,

    I checked out Kendrick Lamar as a result of Grant Smithies writing how his Good Kid restored his faith in hip-hop. Lamar is something special but I guess my problem is I never had any faith in hip-hop to lose. So much it is formulaic, predictable, interchangeable. It is the noise from passing low-rider cars or neighbour's summer bbqs; noise without complexity nor emotion nor subtlety. I guess my deaf-ear extends to local versions or re-versionings,

    Went to Matthew Bannister's The Changing Same last night at Biddy Mulligan's. Pretty damn good. Less so was the brattish preceding act Pink Batts. Their songs were mercifully short--one voice from the crowd called out "can you play anything longer than 30 seconds?"

  • Southerly: Who was George Hildebrand…,

    Old electoral rolls? They can be a can of worms. When I was last at the Turnbull Library, I flicked through rolls from the 1940s--to discover that my father appeared in two for the same year--one for a Christchurch electorate, where he appeared to be married, and one in Taranaki, where he was single. There has only ever been one Wilfred Ronald Lealand.
    Not just a cupboard but a truck-load of skeletons in my family!
