NZMM: Favourite Wellington Music Moment – April Fish

Last edited: 09.05.18 | Comment? | By

For NZ Music Month the last couple of years, we asked bands/artists for a favourite memory of making music in Wellington.

It could involve a favourite gig, a funny story from the recording studio, a moment that led to the inspiration for a song, the fond recollection of a defunct venue, or the piece of music or lyric that they were most proud of creating.

We really enjoyed the stories people told us, so we are doing it again this year.

Up next is Katie from April Fish.

Our first “gig” was at Wellington’s 2010 Musicircus, where over 100 performers gathered to play at the same time. It was a total wall of sound but we pretended to play actual songs while people walked past pretending they could hear us. They asked for our band name – I vetoed John’s suggestions which all sounded like Transformers and suggested April Fish instead. It stuck.
