Hero image for California Fishing
I always like returning to this record live ... there's lots of meat on those songs, they hold up. Lost people, things taken, beautiful girls, California dreamin', catchy choruses. It was a dark, difficult time and these songs go to that, surviving it was the trick.
– Songwriter Greg Fleming on his 2010 album Taken (which includes 'California Fishing'), on his website
Ha, I didn’t fit in at all. I wasn’t the Pixies you know. I’ve always been a bit out of step, I have my own way, but it’s too ‘alt’ for the rock-pop mainstream, the Dave Dobbyns and all that, and too straight for the bFM crowd. It was always that, and still is.
– Songwriter Greg Fleming on his place in the NZ music scene, Audioculture website, 18 February 2019
