Irreverent 90s youth show Havoc launched the television careers of hosts Mikey Havoc and Jeremy ‘Newsboy’ Wells, who also worked together at radio station 95bFM. This first episode played on MTV, which was then run by TVNZ. The guests are Shortland Street actor Angela Bloomfield, Metro editor Bill Ralston and musician Darcy Clay. Amongst pop culture montages, videos and archive material (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.
It's just one big driftnet for the youth market isn't it?– Havoc
