    Ever since my daughter won a copy off Music 101 recently, I've been listening quite a bit on the sly to Benee. Pretty inventive video too.

    Some of you may have heard that the musician Peter Stapleton passed away in Dunedin on March 22. He was in the Vacuum, Pin Group and the Terminals to name but a few bands.

    Here's some footage that surfaced in the last few days, Peter with Roy Montgomery, Helen Greenfield and Mikey Summerfield, from Dec 2013, a Lou Reed tribute.

    While there you also have two (2) days left to watch the excellent
    ’Rumble: The American Indians who rocked the world’

    Thx Ian for tip. Always wanted to see this and may even squeeze in Gimme Danger again. Oh gosh, and Radio Birdman too, I'm in heaven!

    Nice to hear from you Matthew. Yes Nadia Reid was also one of the first to do a Facebook concert - the first Sat in quarantine - in lieu of a cancelled Dunedin gig.

    Delaney Davidson also canned his upcoming southern tour. But we got this instead, a live rendition of 'Purea Nei' sung with Marlon Williams - snuck in in time, in a church in Le Bons Bay.

  • Hard News: Music: A Teutonic Tonic,

    It was an inspired choice. 'Why Can't I Touch It?' is such a great song

    Wonderful song, rapidly becoming my Buzzcocks favourite. Before it's time? After it's time? I dunno. Just fabulous playing on the turntable 'one louder'!

    Thanks Grant, and Blair's been in touch. I liked the L.E.D.s - Rumba from We Are the LEDs is a great track ...

    He's produced some fantastic stuff recently, eh Ian? As his recent Audioculture profile also shows, that track record goes all the way back to All Fall Down and Creeley to Is Blair planning any live outings? Rarer than Terminals' gigs! I recall that ripper show he did at the Darkroom (late 2015?) - but not much since?

    A night not to be missed in Lyttelton - tomorrow Sat 24 November. MEDaL Dave Mulcahy (JPSE, Superette, Cranks , Sexy Animals ), Mark Whyte (Into the Void, Sexy Animals) and John Billows (Renderers, Cranks, The Ether, Dark Matter ) and, after a fairly lengthy absence from live shows, The Terminals play the Wunderbar.

    The Terminals I’ve heard are for this set (and a second outing in Dunedin on Dec 1) veering right away from Antiseptic territory - which has dominated the set in recent outings - to knock out favs from the back catalogue including that gem Uncoffined...

    Hard to find any MEDaL on-line but...with Superette's Tiger getting the redux /re-release treatment, here's a live recording from the late and lamented King's Arms, Saskatchewan...
