Cover Story – Steve Braunias: 100 Beautiful, Strange and Frankly Incredible New Zealand LP Covers (Oratia Media $50)

Guaranteed to send you down a ‘white’ rabbit hole, Steve Braunias’ new book is a dedication to the music that we once treasured and fashion trends we revered. He makes it ok again to pull these out from the back of the cupboard, shake off the dust and drop the needle again. Sure, no one else will understand. But who really cares. This is the real history, here! Isn’t it?

Review – French For Rabbits – The Overflow ( AllGood Absolute Alternative Records Ltd.)

The latest album from Wellington folk/pop crew is the perfect tribute to the glory of being an introvert, homebody or wallflower. Forget lockdowns.  Stay inside, put the kettle on and crank up your headphones.

Cape Palliser Lighthouse (Mātakitaki-a-Kupe)

Cape Palliser Lighthouse is owned and operated by Maritime New Zealand. It was built in 1897 and was originally fueled by oil. In 1954 the oil lamp was replaced with an electric lamp, powered a local diesel generator. Subsequently it was connected up to the mains grid in 1967, although a diesel generator is still on site, in case of emergencies. In 1986 the light was fully automated, now managed from a control room in Wellington.
