In the early 1960s, in small part of greater Auckland, in the farming community of Clevedon, came the folk indebted band The Clevedonaires, a group chiefly made up of the three Brown siblings - Gaye, Graham, and Ron. Over ten years that band became rockers The Cleves, and then both bafflingly and briefly… Bitch. Shaun D Wilson spoke to Ron and Gaye Brown for The Weekend.
