When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb. J. Robert Oppenheimer
All the waste in a year from a nuclear power plant can be stored under a desk. Ronald Reagan
No country without an atom bomb could properly consider itself independent. Charles de Gaulle
I think my mom drove by a nuclear power plant when she was pregnant. But I wouldn't be in 'The Station Agent' if she hadn't. Peter Dinklage

From humble beginnings as a family band performing Bob Marley covers Katchafire have grown in to one of Aotearoa's most internationally successful bands. Their fifth album Legacy has been a long time coming as they juggle family touring and recording.
