“You get the impression that Wellington wants an audience but doesn’t want to be seen to be trying too hard to get one”. This  report surveys 1982's local music scene, framing tensions between an energetic politically conscious underground, and commercial rock and pop (i.e. Auckland). Not all is positive, with complaints about lack of venues and promotion, and violence at gigs. Interviewees include Mocker Andrew Fagan, Nino Birch (Beat Rhythm Fashion), Dennis O’Brien, Ian Morris, promoter Graeme Nesbitt (in Radio Windy sweatshirt) and punk singer Void (Riot 111).

Some of the bands who were grey are becoming quite colourful. Whether that’s an influence from England, or whether that’s just something that’s happening in Wellington, I really don’t know.
