Antarctic Gothic Music.

The Chills are one of the archetypal Dunedin punk bands. This recording is not the cleanest, but it was done in memoriam for their deceased drummer, and as other members of the band were battling serious illness.

This is them when they were young. Plus Dunedin. Dunedin has not changed. The rest of us have gotten old.

There is something about the bass lines in NZ. This is 1990s pop from Christchurch. Note that “stranded in June” is the beginning of winter, not summer.

Let’s not leave out the Aussies. Later of Powderfinger.

That will do.
