Hiya team. It’s New Zealand Music Month and we continue with another double banger with compliments from Little Fire Music Works

This time it’s 2 from They Don’t Make ’em Like This Anymore storage box.

First up its Hogsnort Rupert’s Pretty Girl.
Pretty Girl performed by Hogsnort Rupert at the Century Theatre Napier NZ, Nov 2010

In 1970 this beauty was about the biggest thing since sliced bread on the Kiwi music scene ( remember the old thick and thin sliced loaves?) It spent a few weeks at number 1 and won the Loxene Gold Disc award.

Sadly front man and kazoo player Alec Wishart passed away a few years ago but the song definitely lives on.

Second song to be pulled out of the old wooden tea chest storage box is Bulldogs All Star Good Time Band’s Miss September ditty.

Bulldogs had it’s genesis at Wellington Teachers College in the early 70’s with several line up changes before the winning line up was settled.

With their distinctive sound they toured up and down the country, performed at The Great Ngaruawahia Music Festival of January 1973 and being tent neighbours to star turn Black Sabbath.

If I recall they also won the New Faces TV talent show ahead of an emerging Auckland band that also be trail blazers , Split Ends, as they were then.

They sure don’t make ’em like this anymore……enjoy
