Radio One's high school demo competition

Radio One's high school demo competition

Youth, eh! They are the future…the future of New Zealand music! And Radio One wants to nurture the talent, and generally contribute to the awesomeness that is the future of music in our fine land!

This is why Radio One is holding our inaugural high school demo competition “My Band Is Better Than Your Band!”

Open to all high school students, “My Band Is Better Than Your Band” aims to help any band, hip hop artist, singer/songwriter etc, to make that first tiny step in the journey towards critical acclaim, fame, fortune, and all the pleasures that come with being a musician!

Up for grabs is a recording session in the Radio One production studio to have the winning song recorded, mixed, and mastered in a professional manner to create a recording that is of broadcast standard. The winner will also get a professional bio written, their song play-listed on Radio One, as well as being sent out to fellow b-net stations 95bfm, Radio Active, rdu, Control, and The Generator!

What now? Artists need to send Radio One a demo of their song, the song’s lyrics, and to complete an official entry form (available from Radio One, Dunedin high schools or the Radio One website, www.r1.co.nz)

It’s as easy as that!

Entries must be received no later than Friday 2nd December 2005

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
