Infocus - Smokefree Rockquest

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1993

Presenter Robert Rakete is backstage at Wellington's St James Theatre for the 1993 final of the Smokefree Rockquest. Twelve bands from schools across Aotearoa compete for the title, and thousands of dollars worth of musical gear. Grunge is a strong influence: bands like Wooden Daisies from Pakuranga College rock the plaid shirt, while True T'ru from Hastings Girls' High keep things R&B with an En Vogue cover. Pink Floyd fans Blatant Composure are highly commended in the Original Song category, and (14 minutes in) third placer Bic Runga shows the star quality that got duo Love Soup signed to Pagan Records.

Attitude, originality and motivation.
– The three attributes 1993 Smokefree Rockquest judge Trevor Reekie looks for in a winning band
