Music 101 for Saturday 3 January 2009
Music 101 The Summer Edition Saturday 3 January 2009
This week's Music 101 Summer Edition includes:
12:30 pm E Tu - Stand Proud
Twenty years ago, Upper Hutt Posse released the kaupapa-driven single 'E Tu', a release that has the distinction of being Aotearoa's first rap record. We mark the anniversary of 'E Tu' by speaking to Te Kupu, the voice behind the Posse, and key members of Aotearoa's hip hop community about the impact and influence of the politically-charged track.
1:08 pm Access All Areas: Music Industry Review
Trevor Reekie joins Kirsten Johnstone to chart music business developments and trends - the highs, the lows and the bit-stream in-between from 2008.
Between two and three we catch up a couple of bands on summer tours at the moment- Opensouls and Supergroove, and play a few of our favourite things of the past year.
3:05 pm Moana and the Tribe in Session
Featuring songs from the 2008 release Wha - which hosts love songs and odes to lost heroes and times past. The album is a collage of dub, electronic programming, orchestration and taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments) and was a finalist in the NZ Music Awards 2008.
Here we have warm, stripped-back, acoustic versions of the waiata, performed in an intimate session at Roundhead Studios.
3:30 pm The Who - Their Generation
Paolo Hewitt, the UK's leading authority of all things mod, presents a documentary looking at the early days of The Who and the movement that kicked started parka jackets, snappy dressers and low powered Lambrettas. The story focuses on the characters that formed the backbone to the movement in London, plus of course the four members of The Who. Other bands that are featured include The Creation and The Action.
The story takes us through the 1960's to the end of the Mod Rival, and finds out why The Who survived while all the other bands fell by the wayside. The documentary includes new interview material from everyone who was involved in this colourful slice of British pop history.
Part 1 explores the mod scene and the origins of the band formerly known as the High Numbers.
And at 4pm, Ian Jorgenson, A.K.A Blink- founder of the A Low Hum empire (tours, record label, and camp) makes us a Mixtape.
