TAKIN' CARE OF BUSINESS
The holiday season is over and Camp A Low Hum (R.I.P.) has been and gone, so it's heads down/bums up around the office. With so many exciting new projects in the works it's only a matter of months before you, the reader, will reap the rewards! So while we stretch our wrists to avoid RSI, start clearing your calender and saving your bus change because you're in for one hell of a ride.
Also, congratulations to Tim from Te Atatu who penned a heartfelt valentine and won a double pass to see Neko Case perform at the Powerstation on March 14 and a signedcopy of her latest LP.
Check out his entry here.

NEW LABEL: MELTED ICE CREAM
Cassettes are ruining the music industry.... turns out it’s all Joe Sampson (T54) and Melted Ice Cream’s fault.
The boutique Christchurch label has become a home for small, hand dubbed tape runs of independent NZ artists. Melted Ice Cream’s musical output is planned at a causal pace, with Sampson picking and choosing bands he admires.
