    Resource type: Music Video

    "The artist-briefly-known-as Monte Video was musician Murray Grindlay. Grindlay was a guitarist in the legendary 1960s R&B group the Underdogs, and sang their biggest hit, 'Sitting in the Rain'. Since the 1970s the "the king of jingles" has been the musical force behind many of NZ's most memorable TV advertisements, including 'Dear John' for BASF tape, 'Travelin' On' for Europa, and 'Have a Crunchie' for the long-running Crunchie Great Train Robbery ad. Grindlay has also released solo albums and co-wrote the scores for Sleeping Dogs and Once Were Warriors." (NZ On Screen summary)

    "Hip hop DJ/ producer P-Money (Pete Wadams) talks about a career born from very modest beginnings in this episode from a series for secondary school music students. After initial attempts at scratching on his father’s turntable were quickly rebuffed, he began making music using twin cassette decks. Success in DJ contests followed; and creating his own beats led to collaborations with acts including DLT, Scribe and Che Fu. He describes the process where his music for Scribe’s ‘I Remember’ was built up from samples from a particularly unlikely source." (NZ On Screen summary)

    "In April 1984 Poi-E was atop the NZ music charts, with ‘Jo the breakdancer’ starring in the song's music video. So it's apt that this edition of the TVNZ youth show looks at “the craze currently sweeping New Zealand — breakdancing”. In her first presenting gig, future MTV host Phillipa Dann heads to Mangere to bop and head-spin. Elsewhere in this season opener, David Hindley reports on a School Certificate controversy, and why young drivers are dying on country roads. Co-presenting back in Viewfinder’s Dunedin studio is Uelese Petaia (star of movie Sons for the Return Home)." (NZ On Screen summary)

    "After releasing a couple of cassettes and EPs, Hallelujah Picassos unveiled their debut album Hateman in Love in 1992, which included this single. Their genre-bending sound, incorporating elements of ska, hip-hop, punk, and indie rock made them a staple of the Auckland live scene. Frontman Roland Rorschach takes centre stage in the Bruce Sheridan directed video, performing over images of the band playing while being observed by men in white protective suits. Also featured are the talents of Greg Johnson on trumpet, and Alice Latham on saxophone.   " (NZ On Screen summary)
