Music: New Zealand Music Month – Fur Patrol

DebE —  May 12, 2012 — Leave a comment

The writing/re-writing is going pretty slow at the moment. Weeman (nearly-20mths) has had a fever for the last couple of days, interfering with both his and my sleep, day and night … so, yes, writing does get affected. Still, I have been amazed at what I have managed to get done. Probably still churned through 800-odd words per day (not necessarily on the WiP, but so be it), which doesn’t suck.

Anyway, this post is meant to be about music (I just let my writing side hijack the music promoting side).

Today’s pick is “Lydia” by Fur Patrol – a classic love-lost tune.




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.
