  • william blake,

    The only musical argument this week was if Alison Krauss' version of dreaming is better than this one.

    Not to be confused with his son - born Adrian who released The Bridge as Deane/Dean Waretini.
    The first song sung in te reo to top the NZ singles chart.

    but with the Bridge, what is it about Il Silenzio? Prince Tui Teka did a version as well.

    maybe the Nats will have a crack at later in the year?

    as well as Mulholland Drive…

    …there’s a club in Paris too!
    Here are some of David Lynch's pix of it.

    Heavy Folk lore…
    This story is hiding away on Stuff at the moment (ta Blair for pointing me to it)

    I had to write in and get them to spell Paul’s last name correctly – how hard can it be with the album or internet at hand to get the basics right?
    Not sure about the laboured baby-poo intro, and I never knew that Robert Scott had paws (an animal’s foot having claws and pads) – but otherwise an interesting talk with Bob.
    The article omits to mention they have a gig in Switzerland as well (in Sion, not many NZ bands play there, I'd imagine).
    Looks like a great European tour – I’m particularly impressed with their Paris gig venue – Petit Bain which is on a barge moored on the Seine – next to the Piscine Josephine Baker (a swimming pool also on a barge!) and adjacent to the Arthur Rimbaud Walkway (very Verlaines!) and just one barge from the Simone de Beauvoir walking bridge – aah Paris!

  • Tamara,

    I'm not on FB but maybe someone else can chip in with the Longview (Lounge?) in Howick? I certainly saw The Chills there in the early 90s. It may be in the same location as The Lounge is currently, in Wellington St.
