  • Hard News: Friday Music: The Gaffer Departs,

    Just a little mention of the BBC Proms David Bowie Tribute 7:00pm this evening. I've checked and they RNZ do not have web hosting rights so it's listen then or miss this thang (although there a couple of youtubers at the linked site). Should you miss it RNZ hardly lacks for Bowie related material tho'.

    Hat-tip Ana Samways (I swear, most days the only reason I hit the NZH site) for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nDIcbPL43g. I was reliably advised Dee Snider is grand cool: Proof.

    Always appreciate your blogs Emma. I'm having conversational flashbacks on this albeit none with the éclat of 'feckless shitgibbons' - my WOTY sorted.

    I'm slightly nervous for The Get Down with Luhrmann involved but it probably wouldn't have been greenlit without him. For those

    mildly obsessed with this era

    I'll link again to Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree.

    And Yay! for new Lil Chief releases. Love me some Tokey Tones.

  • Hard News: Fix up, young men,

    And if you think it's not on someone can't see music at a festival without this idiocy and worse, let's think about those times it happens in everyday situations - at home, at the pub, at work. It isn't 'just a laugh.' Someone in the equation is undermined and unsafe. 'Oh, but that guy wouldn't do anything worse.' It's exactly that sort of guy that can overstep what you consider okay if they aren't challenged. So lets step up and call this out when we see it. If you feel afraid of doing so remember you feel nothing near as afraid as the victim of the abuse. Because that's what it is: abuse.

    Ah, memories…

    A The Church short ‘The Quest’ with a wandering knight 2 or 3 of their songs played before it if memory serves.

    Very much appreciated the K Rd Metro article Russell.
    First time I’ve bought the magazine in donkey yonks.

    Yes. Reflector jacketed guys standing next to tripod video camera setups for hours on end are a regular sight, at least on the routes I mostly bus on, Mt Eden, New North Rds and Symonds St.

    Ahem. Simon Morris has a story about 'Doot Doot'. My recollection it was shortly preceded by the chart-topping 'Da Da Da'.

    These days, whenever I hear the word 'Garfunkel' I can't help thinking of this duo:
