Music: New Zealand Music Month – Th’ Dudes

DebE —  May 14, 2012 — Leave a comment

If you didn’t know, New Zealand has quite the drinking culture. Unfortunately, it does tend to be of the binge-drinking kind … Here is a song all about it (from the early ’80s). If you recall my NZMM entry from the other day for Dave Dobbyn, keep an eye out for him in Th’ Dudes (He’s been around. He was also in a band called DD Smash).

Anyway, on with the show. And back to my writing …




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.
