This week we hear The Mutton Birds, the former band fronted by ex Blam Blam Blam, The Front Lawn singer-songwriter Don McGlashan. After calling it quits in the early 2000's The Mutton Birds reformed for a series of sell-out shows around NZ. Radio New Zealand engineer Andre Upston was on deck to capture the performance, ensuring RNZ Music listeners a front row seat.
