It's one year since the death of musician Dave McArtney. The singer, songwriter and guitarist achieved fame with Kiwi music legends Hello Sailor, then went solo with his band the Pink Flamingos. He composed the classic song 'Gutter Black', about “dole bludgers living in Ponsonby” and now iconic as the theme tune to Outrageous Fortune. Remember McArtney’s talent via music videos for ‘Gutter Black’ and ‘Virginia’; doco Raglan by the Sea (where he reflects on music-making, 10min into clip two), a 1978 NZ Music Awards performance, film scores, and more.
