Pip Brown grew up in Masterton, and became the lead shredder in a Wellington based band that could have been huge, but instead imploded, violently.

Now based in Sydney, Pip has found a new band, Teenager, who describe themselves (on myspace) as: “Young and horny. Unpredictable. Loud. Drunk. Abusive in a loving kinda way” They’ve already collaborated with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, and been released on Darren Emerson from Underworlds label in the UK. Teenager recently visited NZ, which is where three quarters of the band still call home. Kirsten Johnstone cornered Pip while she was here.
