1998’s “The Gathering” was a musical event I would never have contemplated ever attending, unless I was serving up curries to the masses.
It just so happens that this opportunity did present itself - helping a mate sell vegetarian and chicken curries up Kanaan Downs.
During the spare time I did have, I mingled with punters at party central and when that got too much, chilled in the more introspecitve, ambient nooks.
I have fond memories. This wonderful record brings back those memories.
In March 2023, this record received Independent Music NZ’s Classic Record award, part of the Taite Music Prize 2023.
