A trip through memory lane

Years ago, around 1996 or so I managed BFM, New Zealand’s largest independent radio station. Before I left for Oz, I put together a compilation album as a tribute to NZ band the Clean. God Save the Clean was an awesome album released as a CD on Flying Nun.


I thought it was more or less lost to history, but I just discovered many of the videos of the tracks, including some from the launch party, are online… so, here ya go!…

Hanging with the Peppers, checking out Northland

My buddy Pepper and her awesome hubby Pete just got a piece of land up north (NZ). I went to check it out – the land is amazing. They have a classic  caravan on it at the moment and doing it up…really cool…




Then I hit up north to check out the beaches over the weekend and camped out.







And finally, while up north on the beach I saw Killer Whales and Santa on the same day! I didn’t manage to get a pic of the Orca, so you have to trust me on that, but I did get a pic of santa…
