The driving force behind much-loved bands TrinityRoots and Little Bushman and member of eclectic Featherston-based trio Vinyl Bison offers up a wonderfully diverse, chronologically-themed mixtape. From his childhood in rural Whangarei to bogan days roaming the streets of Wellington and recent pinings for all things 80s, this is Warren Maxwell’s life, as told in song.
