This Sunday on Frontseat, TV One 10.20pm

Fly My Pretties:

Musicians across the North Island have been having their export “warrants of fitness” checked by ex-pat experts brought out by the NZ Music Industry Commission. Julie Hill gets in amongst it to find out what the secrets to successful touring are, what the new $5.4 million in Government funding is going on, and what constitutes “success” in the fickle music industry.

It’s All Good

One of the winners of the Tui award for international achievement was hip hop chart-topper Scribe, who’s become a household name in Australia and now has his eye on England. Julie gets the low-down on his Australian tours minutes after his win.

Meanwhile, Oliver Driver speaks to the head of Scribe’s management company the morning after. Lawyer Campbell Smith founded CRS Management to fill a gap in the local market for decent music management and has Bic Runga on his books. He’s also the head of the Recording Industry Association of NZ at a time when global sales of CDs are shrinking while local sales grow.

Run, Run, Run:

Josie McNaught continues on her mission to stumble across as many New Zealanders hawking their wares on the other side of the globe as she can in one week. She catches up with the band Goldenhorse on the banks of London’s River Thames as they near the end of their 2005 tour of UK and Europe and asks “Do they care if we’re Kiwi?”

Everything Is Ka Pai:

There’s a revival going on around legendary Maori show-bands of the 1950s and 60s. A new book out from novelist James George and Maori Volcanics front-woman Mahora Peters celebrates the memories of these heady times and provides a decent party for the folk attending the recent Maori Writers’ Festival.

Coming up on future Frontseats: Next week we profile some of New Zealand’s major arts patrons and ask where we’d be without them; Palmerston North’s art scene gets the once-over; British playwrighting legend Alan Bennett; and the new trends in street art.
