Welcome to UnSung NZ episode 2

The Podcast where I share with the world the songs New Zealand loves

This episode I get to talk to Nigel Russell, and boy am I a fan ?    : )

Now you can find out how this happened to young me.  Nigel was an Auckland Punk brat in the late 70's with Spelling Mistakes, but..

in post punk bands Danse Macabre and later Car Crash Set he had a strong hand, in building New Zealand's confidence, in writing bold, emotional new wave and electronica, at a time when soft rock ruled the radio and the death of disco sucked. No one knew what they where doing, the technology was evolving quickly so experimenting with new sounds was the only real option. We also talk about...

TVNZ's C'mon

Selwyn College

Dragon

Roxy Music Virginia Plain
