Irreverent 90s youth show Havoc launched the TV careers of hosts Mikey Havoc and Jeremy ‘Newsboy’ Wells (the pair worked together at radio station 95bFM). This first episode played on MTV (then run by TVNZ). Guests are Shortland Street actor Angela Bloomfield, Metro editor Bill Ralston and musician Darcy Clay. Amongst pop culture montages, videos and archive (future MP Lockwood Smith hosts kids’ knowledge test The W Three Show), Newsboy meets Hustler magazine centrefold Kimberly. The show is date-stamped by Spice Girls, drum’n’bass, Sodastream and Wells’ gelled hair.

When I worked at TVNZ Captioning, there were two chairs in the office break area that looked like the armchair whanau of Havoc's guest couch, complete with that pilly, snot yellow fabric.



Great to find some old H&N, this show takes me back to what was for me a golden age of television. Cheers NZonscreen!
