Nostalgia for the ol days
While I was at Grants place perusing his massive CD collection, I found the Inspector Moog CD - Wait!. Far out, quite possibly the most underated NZ pop band ever. I still remember most of the words, even the surreal ( but clever) lyrics to Milk biscut boy. I had to borrow it and have been listening to it for days now.
It reminds me of my band groupy days in Hamilton. Hanging out with Zed at Ward lane or JBC. Watching Rumpus room and Schrodingers cat play what seemed like every weekend. Staying till the venues closed because we had to pack out the P.A. system. And coming home stinking of cigarettes because you could still smoke in bars back then.
Well they were good times, and bloody amazing bands too. When I listen to some of the old songs I am amazed at how good they are. H-town certainly was producing quality sounds back then. Schrodinger's cat really kicked arse y'know!
