More New Zealand from the voices that matter, both then and now. You get full re-pros of the six editions of Richard Langston's GARAGE fanzine that were first published during the Flying Nun/Xpressway hotstreak of the mid 80s, plus sixteen contemporary inteviews with leading lights and key figures. And photos, too, of course. Alec Bathgate, David Kilgour, Roy Montgomery, Shayne Carter, Bill Direen, George Henderson, Francisca Griffin, Ronnie van Hout, Chris Heazlewood, Peter Jefferies, Stephen Cogle, Hamish Kilgour, Tom Lax, Stuart Page, Martin Phillipps, Bruce Russell, John Halvorsen, Dean Allen, Robert Scott, Brian Turner, Gary Olson, David Swift, Roger Shepherd...HEAVY HITTERS. Not too many female voices in there, i'll admit, but perhaps that's a different book for a different time (and soon?). Either way, more words about the best noise always welcome. Essential and forever.
