I have been a fan of NZ music for a long time and I have really appreciated your posts this week. While I have a lot of it, there are many groups which I know little or nothing about.

It is actually a fairly well documented scene compared to some you have covered. There are a few great web sits to check out including
dunedinsoundtapes.blogspot.com which has a all the usual Flying Nun and Xpressway stuff along with some live tapes and demos which fill in some gaps.

I know I have not said thank you enough. Great work.
