NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month - Day 16

This one is surprisingly obscure given the number of familiar faces in the line-up. It starts off with a few instrumental/ambient type pieces, but all of a sudden becomes a fully-fledged Blams reunion with the superb Thief - the sort of song which contains enough ideas that most other groups would have spun them out over the space of an entire album. A couple of songs after that is the wickedly funny, mostly spoken-word and wordplay-rich Auckland; between them these two songs make the entire album worthwhile. Not that there's anything wrong with the rest of it, either.

Doctor Who night

Tonights advertising spot snark goes to Earth Care toilet paper. I doubt that all that many people who see that ad will ever actually get the joke; the expression "Does a bear shit in the woods?" is not at all a common saying in New Zealand.
