New Zealand Music Month - Day 8

Coconut Rough started out trying to be a supergroup (they included Andrew Snoid, late of the Swingers and Pop Mechanix, and Mark Bell, late of Blam Blam Blam; and Phil Judd, late of the Swingers and before that, Split Enz was involved behind the scenes) but ended up going down in history as a one-hit wonder. Their one hit (Sierra Leone) isn't difficult to find, but the rest of their output has never been seen again - their LP had already been deleted by early 1985, and neither of their other two singles made much of an impact. This is rather a shame, as the song featured in tonight's video (Magic Hour) is really rather good.
