Frontseat, this Sunday 29th May, 10.30pm TV One

Frontseat, this Sunday 29th May, 10.30pm TV One

Finalist – Best Television Current Affairs Programme, Qantas Media Awards

THE MUSIC OF RUGBY All Black Anton Oliver and Mu, the band-leader of current chart-toppers Fat Freddy's Drop, tell Oliver Driver what music and rugby can learn from each other.

All Black hooker and Highlander captain Anton Oliver is an arts-literate music fan and the proud owner of a NZ-made guitar. Mu (aka Chris Faiumu) is the rugby-loving captain of the Wellington all-star band Fat Freddy's Drop, who have rocketed to the top of the Top 50 Album chart with their debut long-player 'Based on a True Story'. Mu is up for 'Most Outstanding Musician' and 'Best Producer' in this week's BNet Awards.

In a world where music plays an important part in hyping up the crowds at live games, and where a Friday evening match often precedes a night out watching local bands, Frontseat is delighted to bring these two men of action together for a rare and special conversation.

WHO LOVES WHO THE MOST? Frontseat examines the relationship between iconic Kiwi songs and big sports matches, talking to "game enhancement" specialist Mark McLeod, who's programming the Lions Tour stadium music. Also featuring are: musician Jordan Luck; muso-broadcaster Graham Hill; rugby-loving NZ Music Industry Commission head Cath Andersen; and Flowz from Wellington hip hoppers Footsouljahs who raps about rugby exclusively for Frontseat.

THREE’S COMPANY To top off this music-themed programme, the NZ Trio talk about their new album, their residency at the University of Auckland, and perform ‘dirty pixels’, a work in one movement for piano trio, commissioned by the NZ Trio from Michael Norris.
