About the show
Playing tracks by
The Spies, The Pin Group, Wallsockets, The Vacuum, Perfect Strangers and more.
The first of five mixes dedicated to the New Zealand underground, tracing the period from 1978 to 1988, from punk beginnings through Flying Nun, Dunedin Sound, its various tributaries, and other outsider music. Both the hits and the obscurities.
Many folks have put me on to lots of the music featured in these mixes, but a particular thanks and tip-of-the-hat to Bruce Russell, Tom Lax, Campbell Walker, Dean Roberts, Ian Henderson, Maryrose and Brian Crook, and Julian Williams.
