Country Calendar - Daggy and the Dickheads

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1982

He's [one of the Dickheads] secure knowing that if the band doesn't make it he can return to the farm.
– The narrator on the unique safety net for these rock'n'roll dreamers
But for Paul Kennedy the drugs, sex and rock'n'roll scene is tempered by having to be out on the fence-line the next day.
– From the narration
There's really no reason why a band shouldn't start up in Taihape ... [the band was] just a common interest amongst the five of us, who've worked on the land. We all loved music and thought 'why not?'.
– Guitarist Dan McCartin
It's hard to draw a parallel between singing and battening or fencing or shearing or whatever we're doing, but I think it gives us a good balance ... it's the best of the both worlds.
– Singer Mark Kennedy
