Kiwi by Proxy – Online Radio for New Zealand Music

Featuring the Best in New Zealand Music

Latest Kiwi by Proxy – I Am Spartacus….R

with one comment

Howdy all.

I recently had the great fortune of speaking with Ryan Prebble. Ryan is among other things a member of Spartacus R (and a member of one of the most musical families in all of New Zealand…The Prebbles.)6covers

Spartacus R has a new album out (well it came out in January and I am now just getting around to talking about it.)

The album is When the Fever Takes Hold and it is superb. Eight tracks of pure sonic bliss with six (yes that’s right, count ’em six) album covers. (Very cleverly done… you can insert each print into a clear cover and change it out according to your taste.)

This podcast will feature a few tunes off that album. Alongside the Spartacus tunes you will hear music from Ginger Brown, Little Bushman and Good Laika.

This is a groovy little number of Kiwi by Proxy as this music is reminiscent of late 60s early 70s pyschedelia/blues/rock. Solid stuff!

Also in between tunes you will hear Ryan discussing the music making process behind their new album and a little bit about his solo work.

So here we go… I Am Spartacuscast….
