Amplifier Newsletter #112 - 30 March 2004

Greetings . A moment in nz history with the launch of MTS on sunday, check the story below regarding the live music show Coast. The grand master of soul is in town and playing tonight, plenty of high C's tonight at the St James. Keep'n it real

The Wire

The Wire runs from Monday to Friday 12.00pm to 2.00am on Auckland b-net Station 95 bFM. It provides an independent view of national and international current affairs, social and environmental issues and on Fridays a look at the music industry.


Kinka ( Dougal Records ) is basically one track of drumming and singing lasting 63 minutes. It was laid down live in one take at the University of Auckland and then mixed and mastered at Revolver Studios. It is relaxing background music or can be listened to closely and the intricate call and response nature of the music becomes apparent.

Debuting on April the 2nd, 2004, COAST has a stellar line up of live performances by Mareko, Anika Moa, Ill Semantic & DJ Logikal!
