We say:

Downbeat drum & bass/electronica, exploring the frequency spectrum one beat at a time. Momentum is a Jekyll and Hyde producer and DJ. The Hyde side: Gutter-crawling bass-heavy sonic mayhem. The mysterious Dr Jekyll: Sky-high heart-rending grooves…

    "This video for the debut single from Christchurch rockers The Feelers was one of the first made by director Joe Lonie after the disbanding of Supergroove (where he played bass, and learnt his craft directing their videos). It earned Lonie a nomination for Best Video at the 1998 NZ Music Awards. The video begins, as it ends, with a man fleeing from unseen forces. Lonie builds and maintains momentum with constant motion and cutting, while underlining the pressure motif by having the band performing in a boiler room, and claustrophobically running through a pipe."

    "Updated Out Run-style back projection effects give this Tim Van Dammen clip momentum, and along with Boh's seductive performance, drive a terrific song.   "The 1965 mustang was kindly donated for the shoot, which was during the weekend of the 48 Hour Film Festival ... we were asked to turn the playback down about five times by nearby crews trying to get dialogue [for their 48 Hour films] (no hard feelings guys - I hope)."

    "TrueBliss was the first manufactured pop group of the reality TV era. The series Pop Stars plucked Erika Takacs, Joe Cotton, Megan Alatini, Carly Binding and Keri Harper out of obscurity, chronicled their development and briefly turned them into chart toppers and household names. Debut album Dream and single 'Tonight' were both number ones with platinum sales and there was a sold out tour. But TrueBliss faded without the momentum of the TV series. Binding went on to a solo career while Cotton became a radio announcer and Takacs a TV Presenter." (NZ On Screen summary)

    "One hit wonders, Dave and the Dynamos were an offshoot of folk pop act Hogsnort Rupert (of 'Pretty Girl' fame). Their origins were in a Hogsnort Rupert live skit featuring a band of aging rockers performing a Dave Luther composition called 'Life Begins at 40'. Audience requests encouraged Jordan to release the song as a single. It spent three weeks at number one in 1983 and stayed in the Top 40 for 22 weeks. When a follow-up 'Can't Spell Rhythm' took a year to emerge, momentum was lost and Dave and the Dynamos were reabsorbed into Hogsnort Rupert." (NZ On Screen summary)
