    Dave Dobbyn writes solid, quality songs that can withstand all manner of extremes.

    Belatedly: this is so true. I don't know why he gets dismissed out of hand so much.

    Just more to do with over-exposure, I guess

  • Ian Dalziel,

    I'm running out of year, but I'd just like to mention that...
    ....at last The L.E.D.s album Dunes got a whiff of publicity - #5 in The Press reviewer, Vicki Anderson's best 50 albums for 2012 - see the Go supplement last Friday, sadly not available on line (an area The Press could hopefully and usefully improve upon in the new year, even having a Music section online would be a start)

  • Ian Dalziel,


    Christmas cards anyone,,,
    Sadly all you Toy Love fans missed out getting the snazzy 24 poster postcard sets at the record launch in Auckland - they were there, just languishing elsewhere, apparently due to brainfade or perhaps under a quality control cloud - not enough pixels for some? - I thought they were close enough for rock n roll in the circumstances, - c'est la vie...
    That was then, this is Now!
    With access to better scans, and some misattributions fixed - (Sorry Terry, and does anyone know the whereabouts of the photographer David Burke?) Mk II sets are now available - thru Flying Nun (when they add them to their website - they have The Bats sets available, too) there's a few at Galaxy Records & Penny Lane & Smith's Bookshop in Chchch so far - or you can hit the email icon above and write to me...

    Here endeth yet another shameless self serving plug masquerading as a public service announcement...

    Yeah, me, I'm talking to you...

    a whiff of publicity

    I meant to say another whiff of publicity...
    as Public Address, and Russell, have always been stalwart champions of the LEDs - and all things Parkesian.
    But how to get the rest of the nation to notice?
    Even though they've heard bits of tracks in the
    Outrageous Fortune and Go Girls shows...
    Next year maybe?
    After the upcoming paradigm shift...
    ;- )
