The only musical argument this week was if Alison Krauss' version of dreaming is better than this one.
Label art: from 1927…
Oh my. That's pretty awesome.
That’s pretty awesome
and with the 'original' Deane Waretini
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?
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!
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.
