Making Music - Blindspott

Short Film (Full Length) – 2005 Music Arts/Culture

Start video player

Drummer Shelton Woolright and guitarist Marcus Powell from West Auckland metal band Blindspott feature in this episode from a series made for high school music students. They talk about their beginnings playing in sheds and paddocks in Taupaki and their decision to “get serious” which led to a major label record deal and radio play in Australia and South East Asia. The third Blindspott single ‘S.U.I.T. (So Us Is This)’ gets an acoustic run through as its construction is explained and there are some school friendly excerpts from the music video.

There weren’t too many bands doing our style of music in New Zealand but we just stuck with it and it was our passion and thankfully it worked.
– Shelton Woolright
