    Just out, a bit of midweek listening, from 'the Jimi Hendrix of no technique' - THIS IS MEMORIAL DEVICE NZ: A SPECIAL PODCAST BY BRUCE RUSSELL (XPRESSWAY/THE DEAD C ET AL) – PART 1.

    It's a special podcast put together drawing parallels between the fictitious Lanarkshire (Scotland) music scene brought to life by David Keenan in his publication This Is Memorial Device and the NZ post-punk scene of the 1980s - in which of course Bruce himself was a key player.

    And, one for the diaries, Sunday 9 April, Spooky Boogie is hosting Vinylism, Lyttelton's One and Only Vinyl Fair of the year.

    Aah, the intricacies of the English language still befuddle many Ian. Good then they didn't try to include Martin's 'challenging' spelling of his surname!

    Am looking forward to catching this lineup not having seen the band Since early 90s though did catch Martins's great solo set in Chch for NZ Music Minth in 2015.

    BTW, I must have been in another kaleidoscope world when that 80-odd recording Secret Box was released, completely missed it. Does anyone know of where I can track one down?

    and it's really worth another look

    Certainly was! What a fab re-find. Silly me, I never went to the gig at the time but watching it just now, it felt I was there. Chris Knox is in great form and love that Cale rendition of Heartbreak Hotel.

  • Hard News: Friday (Thursday) Music: Heavens,

    pleased yesterday when new vinyl ...turned up

    Talking of which, be sure to check out Motte's (aka Anita Clark) brand spanking new album Strange Dreams - available on vinyl release today too!

    Motte also plays this weekend in Aotea Square as part of the Summer in the Square series. Get on down and enjoy a sonic force to be reckoned with.

    Love the Echo Ohs - they played a great show at the Darkroom earlier in the year. Get out and get a copy of their 7" You Don't Mind / The Gnarl - in either orange or blue on white hand printed sleeves - while they last.

    Here's some footage from a 2015 95bFM Breakfast Club session.

    Here are those grand old men of...meaningful noise. Don't know what it was called but it was one 45-50 minute continuous roller-coaster track - fucking brilliant!
