Ross is in Australia, still playing, and has a recording studio. Mark is in Christchurch and is playing with band 'The Atarmies'. Ramon also lives in Christchurch and has been recording his original songs with the help of Ross. Andre is in Christchurch also and has a "real job" lol.

Ragnarok was right up there with Yes and Genesis. Proud they came from New Zealand. Saw them play in Napier at the Buck A Head concert in the mid 70's. Best concert I've ever attended. Given how Prog Rock is so popular now overseas it's a shame they're not back together putting out more songs. Great songs. Great memories.

Brings back so many great memories from that time! Hard to believe music of this quality was being played several days a week on early evening TV!
This video really captures them close to their best. Saw them live many times - we were so lucky to have them, if only for a few years!

I had the privilege of meeting Mark & Andre Jayet of Ragnarok in Christchurch, in the winter of 2007, they were most accommodating to the many questions I posed about the history of the group. It took me many years to find their two albums in almost perfect condition, this was due to the days before searching the internet, when one had to scour through the rare vinyl auctions & second hand music stores. Mark & Andre also signed both album sleeves, for which I was most grateful. "Many thanks again" if you are reading this Guys. They were a great group that posed fantastic music, Nooks for me is certainly a desert Island disk. It would also be great to know the whereabouts of the lead singer Ramon York, and bass player Ross Muir...Anyway, thanks again for the music guys, and many thanks to NZonScreen for posting indeed, this very rare gem.

Thanks so much for putting up this rare gem. I'm a big fan of this group and have both of their albums on vinyl and seeing this performance from them is just awesome. I was only a toddler when they released "Nooks" and wish I was old enough back then to have seen these guys in concert. I live not far from the old Avalon Studios and drove past there last night and thought of this.
Keep it coming NZ On Screen! Cheers :-)

I was a cameraman on this recording in studio 8 at Avalon. There was never any scripts or shot lists on Grunt...Just roll record and see what we get. Wonderful times. Great band.

One of New Zealands most underated bands, fantastic to see some footage of the band has survived. These guys were brilliant musos.
