Mi-Sex nailed main stage Saturday night : one of the greasiest live Kiwi bands ever. Sweetwaters 80 was the follow-on from a huge mini Woodstock in Nambassa 79. Other music festivals never quite captured the buzz of these two, but hey...folk kept showing up to get a weekend of drugs, booze and cool music....some guys even got a root.

Mi-Sex were great too and Sweetwaters was a great promotional platform for them ... I knew their singer Steve Gilpin from the TV One Avalon days where he spent a lot of time performing and he was a lovely good-natured guy - it was so sad he died in QLD after a car crash in 1992.

I was there too - briefly back in NZ and doing some stuff for Radio NZ and Morning Report. I remember the Elvis Costello performance as a stand-out - but what stuck in my mind were the overflowing Porta Potties and a guy drowning. Dylan was was always great and one of my best Media Mates - we worked together in the seventies.
