    I thought you were against that sort of thing, Ross.

    TBH, I’ve only just discovered their brilliance. Your post reminded me to play them, am doing that now to relax from my angry rant this morning about the other war on drugs.

  • Hugh Wilson,

    Over in Melbourne Lemi Ghariiokwu, who did many album covers for Fela and others, has been artist in residence at Northside records for the week. There have been 15 prints for sale, at a reasonable $100 a pop .... a good music world initiative, pics of the prints at the links below

  • Grant McDougall,

    If she becomes PM - or even if she doesn't, it'd be a total no-brainer for Laneway to have Jacinda Ardern reprise her DJ appearance from a few years' ago.

    Even if she just did 30mins, it'd be great.

    Literally 'House music from in da house!'
    hopefully with Parliament samples of all sorts...

    Fuck. Husker Du were my fav band for many years in the 80s and onwards. It was a treat to see him play a small but enthusiatic show at the Kings Arms earlier this year as well. Even did requests at the end.
    RIP.

    The label is run form Auckland by the Strom brothers of Antix and Fiord fame... Beat & Path release a bunch of artists from NZ and Australia. Top stuff if you like a bit of techy boompty on your dance floor
