Music: New Zealand Music Month – Dave Dobbyn

DebE —  May 11, 2012 — 1 Comment

Yep, it’s still May. And today I am showcasing Dave Dobbyn, another one of the country’s most prominent musical artists. Enjoy.

And now for something classic …

Good old “Footrot Flats” – A classic movie, and this is a classic song featured in that movie.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
