Musical Dynasties - Ruban, Kody and Chris Nielson

From The Weekend with Karyn Hay , 10:30 am on 18 January 2015

The last Musical Dynasty  features some of New Zealand's top musical talent in the form of the Nielson family. Dad Chris has played horns with an array of acts, as well as jazz groups, including The New Fuse Box. Brothers Ruban and Kody co-founded seminal experimental punk band The Mint Chicks. Kody has gone on to work as a producer, and released records under his own name and as Opossum. Portland, Oregon based Ruban has had a lot of success in America, in his hard touring band Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
