  • Speaker: In Tribute: Peter Gutteridge…, in reply to Shaun Scott,

    The other, more significant moment, was seeing him play with the Clean at Chicks- taking forever to plug in his amp, tune his guitar, while a bemused/amused and ever patient band and crowd waited . . . and then a quite brilliant couple of songs, including a majestic “Point that thing”

    oh yes …

    They were formidable – but to me they were also one of those bands where it had to be that line-up or not at all. Subsequent line-ups had their moments, but that original line-up really were phenomenal. It was drone-rock at its most uncompromising and thrilling – huge, pulsating riffs and waves of screeching, distorted guitars.

    Thanks for this Grant – there’s not much more to say.

    Great post, Angus, and there's many more cool and crisp night visions on your website. Streetlights and digital imaging seem to go well together.

    nice one, the ektachrome has a pleasing way of handling the highlights/ sky

    Thanks. Yes, it was good stuff. Not quite dead but they're giving the last rites.

    A good excuse to post another Ektachrome shot (also with a few trees) ... the charming olde world Grafton village.

    Alan captured the memories of the band’s irrepressible guitarist, Michael O’Neill, before the severe stroke that Michael suffered recently. I hope the recovery is going as well as it can do for Michael and his family.

    I hope so too. That is sad news.

    Here's one of the Meemees photos that I sent to Simon today for the Audio Culture page. It was taken in 1981 when the band played a show in a circus tent at Okahu Bay. It was the first time I took a camera to a gig, and this was the best shot.
