Bands and artists I knew nothing about ...

I told Muffy in the TLF Sunday thread that I knew virtually nothing about the Kiwi music scene. I then went and listened to some NZ clips on ewetoob. So, it struck me that its an interesting idea for a new music thread.

Amen.

Alien Weaponry ~ Rū Ana Te Whenua

This type of chunky, power-tools-gargle-growl rock generally isnt my cup of tea, but this is very well done for what it is:



Amen.

Thumbs up Dragon ~ Rain

This band originated in NZ and wound up in Oz. No question which decade this tune is from:



Amen.

These guys come from my hometown (Waipu), which is kind of amazing given it's a one street "town" with a population of about 1500 (it has actually expanded a lot in recent years). They toured with Ministry last year. I don't really like their music, though.

NZ 80s hit, that's totally cringeworthy, and has become a local classic that still gets played regularly, and which I must confess I kind of like when I'm drunk. Piney has also taken a liking to it and watching him try to sing the maori lyrics usually has me rolling around in laughter:

Thumbs up The La De Das ~ On Top Of The World

This band was apparently very big in NZ and Oz in the 60s and 70s:



Cool band name. 👍🏻

Amen.

Thumbs up Carson ~ Boogie (Live)

I stumbled across Carson quite by accident several years ago. This isnt Kiwi, but its Oz and I like this video:



Amen.

I love Alien Weaponry. Keep in mind, they were 15 or 16 when they recorded those songs.

If I'm not mistaken, Kimbra is a kiwi as well. Give her a listen.

Here's one from Split Enz, one of the best Kiwi bands ever, IMO. Neil Finn went on to front Crowded House, who did relatively well in the USA, and I think he is currently replacing Lindsay Buckingham in Fleetwood Mac. This song has been covered by Eddie Vedder, Marilyn Manson...and a bunch of others.
