We’re at the Smokefreerockquest Wairarapa Final so put down your shears and clean out your ears cause it’s time for some music sharing!
It’s been awhile since we had a national winner reign from the Wairarapa region, eleven years in fact. Back in 1997 a band called Atlas Wood with members from both Wairarapa College and Kuranui College, took out the grand title. One of the members was in fact Mike Fabulous who went on to join the hugely successful Black Seeds before carving out a solo career.
In this episode we meet Absolutely Knott who talk to us about interesting time signatures. These guys won the Fatboy Style Award, the clown wigs and tutus clearly impressed the judges!
We also catch up with Smokefree Tangata Beats winners ‘Fresh Noiz’ and they share why they chose diversity as the theme of their winning song.
