Our next guests formed a band to sing at their friend's wedding, actually it's more accurate to say that they were formed by Wellington's answer to Simon Cowell - Duncan Sarkies.

It was his wedding after all. UltrasouNZ covered the 80s tracks they love - complete with the look - and thought this would be a one night gig. Tomorrow night they've been selected to kick off the 40th anniversary year of the Wellington Gardens Magic concert series at the Botanic Garden.

They describe their sound as "full on Synth 80's tastic bangers". UltrasouNZ is in the midst of rehearsals but Joe Blossom and Vanessa  Stacey got special permission to join us  in the Wellington studio.
