NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month - Day 4

Tonight's song almost managed to be a novelty hit, probably due to its highly eccentric nature at a time when mainstream music as going through a particularly boring phrase.

Low Profile were fairly much Phil Bowering, Steve Garden and anyone else they could rope in to help at any particular point in time. Elephunk In My Soup was almost a hit, but their other single Simon Says and their album Elephunkin' fairly much disappeared without trace (well, apart from the copy I bought, which is still somewhere in my record collection).

Unfortunately none of their material seems to ever have been released in any digital format, and it's next to impossible to successfully google for the song because another band released a popular record called "Elephunk" a few years ago. They aren't even up on You Tube - I've finally managed to track this clip down on another site (and am hoping that its embed codes are compatible with LJ).
