Twelve kilometres out of Dunedin, a long way from students and student bars, is Port Chalmers. It is a beautiful, eerie port town with enough industrial noise to ease the tinnitus of the musicians who call it home. Chick's Hotel is a dark, looming building that holds a few secret rooms and 19th century ghost stories, and allows bands from around the world to add to the noise.

Anthonie Tonnon takes us on a tour.
