Music Feature: The EELMan story

From Afternoons, 2:20 pm on 12 November 2019

In the 1980s the independent music scene was taking off in New Zealand. The DIY ethos saw a boom of homegrown record labels, such as Flying Nun, Propellor and Bunk records. And among them was EELman - a Wellington-based label that stood out for its humour, funk and bold aesthetics.

John Niland from EELMan is here today to tell us the story of the label - and also play some of the songs from across the back catalogue, which has just been re-issued digitally.
