Radio with Pictures - Sweetwaters

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1980

There was no aggro … it was just that sort of scene.
– Dylan Taite
Sweetwaters was to illustrate how vast the gulf now is between the new bands of the late seventies and 80s, and everybody who came before.
– Dylan Taite
I think the music of the 80s has changed. It’s a pumping type of music with a bit of melody. That’s what we’ve done anyway.
– Steve Gilpin, lead singer of Mi-Sex
I know Split Enz are going to go from strength to strength in the 80s because we feel it in our bones.
– Tim Finn
