...you get an email forwarded to you from loladmin@linz.govt.nz and for a moment you think it's going to be an embarrassing photograph of the Chief Surveyor with a humorous caption, instead of actually being digital survey plans from Land On Line...

And a You Tube link for anyone who likes classic `eighties pop: Martha and the Muffins. Took half an hour, but I managed to get enough of it downloaded to last night to confirm that it was "Echo Beach" (the only song of theirs I know). Great stuff. (Found by Paul Litterick of The Fundy Post).

(Edited to add: Emails seem to have started trickling through again. Still very not happy with my ISP though.)

I should really be thanking you... I've been spreading around that link (to people with better internet connections than mine). I've loved that song ever since, a few years ago now, picking it up an (otherwise horrible) el cheapo Dutch (I think) "hits of the `eighties" collection for the princely sum of $7.95 for three CD's worth. At the time I thought it was worth it for (1) World Party's "Ship of Fools" and (2) there may have been something else worth listening on the discs. As it was "Echo Beach" was the best of the bunch.
