  • Grant McDougall,

    the artist himself was due to appear in court today. Any updates would be very welcome.

    He's pleaded not guilty and has been remanded at large to appear again in August, according the ODT

    Here is a link to quite a cool piece from RNZ on women guitarists, called "She will rock you: NZ female guitarists that rock"

  • Ken Double,

    I bought my Rega P3 in Christchurch from Vintage Audio World. I'm pretty sure it was them; it was well pre-quake and they had a store just off the Square. I remember because I had to stash it in the hold on the flight back to Wellington and it was the single worst landing I've had in 37 years of living here. Fortunately only the plastic lid broke. Why is all the cool vintage shit in Christchurch? Every time you see something sweet and old school on Trade Me it's in Christchurch. Did it all come out on the first four ships or something?

    Should I post a video? Maybe I should. And before you write this off as some helium bubblepunk nonsense I give you Wikipedia:

    "The Westermarck effect, or reverse sexual imprinting, is a hypothetical psychological effect through which people who live in close domestic proximity during the first few years of their lives become desensitized to sexual attraction."

    Yes indeed! one of the beauties of these types of lists is that it gets people posting other stuff that "should be on the list".

    You have helped set my listening for tonight.

    I would also add in Sandra Bell's "Industrial Night" for some good noisy guitar.

    The amazing thing about Kaye is that her guitaring just seems to have become better – and more important to the band(s) – as the years have passed.

    A good shellacking!
    I’ve got 20 or so old 78s on Trade Me at the moment – Charlie Parker, Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Stan Freberg and many many more….

    That is Barry Linton's original Red Mole logo.

    RNZ did leave open the prospect of further rounds.

    While looking up Red Mole references I discovered Alan Brunton’s NZEPC page – with posters!
    Many by Barry Linton, but also one by a member of this parish then known only as ’Flexible Shaft’ – 1 of each pictured above.

    Will be good to see where the list leads. I like their approach of each woman nominating another (the "daisy chain of nominations")- it has meant it is very much oriented towards "current" guitarists, but cool that the discussion of the list reminds us of the generation before ( Many of whom are of course still playing).

  • Geoff Lealand,

    Thanks, Ian. That should be 'Hawera'.

    Saw The Bads at the excellent Nivara Lounge in Hamilton this evening. They were very good.
