Episode 140 features an interview about the Wellington based band, The 40 Watt Banana who formed in Wellington in 1968 performing and recording  Indo-Afro psychedelic music that has just been released by a Spanish re-issue label called Pharaway Sounds. The curious thing about this story is that it’s an album that started with the release of an esoteric single called ‘Nirvana’ released by HMV in 1971. The other trax on the new album called Peeled by 40 Watt Banana were demos that were never released - until now. Founding member, jazz musician Kevin Clark talks about an album that took 48 years to see the light of day yet sounds like it was recorded today.
