  • Hard News: Budget 2018: The final tick,

    I think the claim that there is some kind of stand-off between RNZ and Claire Curran (most recently promulgated by The Spinoff) is without any foundation. Sitting beside each other at the recent Better Public Media panel, they seemed in full agreement. A major barrier to cooperation (Richard Griffin) has now gone.

    Anthonie did a great performance at The Meteor in Hamilton (he really liked the venue) recently,
    Stratford or New Plymouth? There is an important difference (I have lived in both places).

    I name-check Lorde in my latest contribution to New Zealand Memories, about the very early days of local recorded music.

  • Hard News: Music: 2017 – this is not a list,

    I share your misgivings about ‘Best Of’ lists, Russell. In the Time Out (NZH) list, only three releases were familiar. Does this imply that I am out of touch? Or that there is too much music floating around? Or that some list compilers indulge in a sort of wilful obscuratism? If I was able, I would add Elbow “Little Fictions”and Sufjan Stevens reworkings of “Carrie & Lowell” and LCD Soundsystem “American Dream”.
    I second Julia Deans at the Golden Dawn. It was a delight.

    A tree of another kind. Josephine’s contribution to the annual Trees at the Meteor in Hamilton, constructed from a year’s teabag use (thus “Tea Tree”). Received a Highly Commended Award last night.

    “look”, seeing that radio interviewees (politicians especially) preface every second statement with this (and it is so bloody annoying!!)
