‘As Does The Sun’ by Look Blue Go Purple

From Nights, 7:32 pm on 28 September 2017

Now we're going to have a look at The Oriental Tavern, just off campus. In the mid-80s this was something of a second home for many of the Dunedin bands. It is a pretty ordinary looking pub but it hosted some great gigs, The Verlaines, Sneaky Feelings, The Orange, The Rip, The Puddle, The Great Unwashed, The Doublehappys, Straitjacket Fits and Look Blue Go Purple. They were the most high profile of female musicians in Dunedin. They had a really strong pop/melodic sense. (Part of Bryan Crump and Richard Langston's Dunedin: A Magical Musical Tour)
