Arch Hill News

Hello and Happy New Year,

Seems that 2002 was a good year for Arch Hill, so thanks to everyone who helped us out in some way or other. 2003 is shaping up very well also. Following is some Arch Hill News - more to come soon...

New Pine Web-site
Yep...Pine have a flash new web-site at
It's got videos, music, reviews and all kinds of interesting stuff

Fang Video
Fang have recently completed their first Video for the track 'Man From the South' and you can get a sneak preview of it at at
The video was made by One Collective and directed by Richard Bell, who has worked with Beck, U2, Johnny Cash, Joy Division and stacks of others.

The video involves complex 'floating' scenes in a certain famous South Island traffic tunnel. When the tunnel authority got wind of these illegal activities it was quick to react by activating the bright flashing lights and broadcasting a disembodied voice repeating "you are now being filmed doing an illegal activity". Needless to say Richard and Fang high-tailed it and hid out in the nearest shipping yard. Luckily, there has been no further word from the Tunnel Authority.

Summer Series - Fang are playing the 95bFM Summer Series this Sunday along with Rhombus, the Mint Chicks, Zuvuya, HMX, Open Souls and Timmy Schumacher. Music runs between 12 and 7pm.
Real Groovy - Fang are also doing an in-store at Real Groovy next Friday 31 of January.
Pine have some local and offshore gigs coming up - to be announced soon.

Radio Guff
Pine's latest single "Cried All Night has been getting heaps of B-net Radio play and has just been added to Channel Z as well. In "Alternative"/b-net radio the Median Strip most played on Radio songs of 2002 included
No.9 = Pine - Beaten Again
No11 = Fang – Telephone
No29 = Mestar - Distant Star
No 67 = Pine - Cried All Night

That should do for now...
Luv from Arch Hill
