Amplifier Newsletter #179 - 27 July 2005
Kia ora ,
We’ve had a call from some people who are planning on making a DVD of the Children's Hour reformation gigs. The DVD will be shot at the Auckland and Wellington gigs with a couple of bonus clips from the Christchurch gig last April. The makers would like to know how much interest there potentially is though before totally committing. If you think they should make the DVD then please drop an e-mail to us at email@example.com and we’ll pass your comments/questions on. Speaking of live music check out these upcoming tours from Mark de Clive-Lowe and Sola Rosa.
Ka kite ano.

The tracks are not fantasies of far away Bloods & Crips, but the reality of a life lived hard in South Auckland. ENTER HERE
