Some will be asking who is Malcolm Black?

Well Malcolm fronted Dunedin band The Netherworld Dancing Toys in the 80’s. Malcolm helped craft what has become a true Kiwi anthem, For Today (I remember your smile).

Malcolm Black passed away in Auckland after a battle with cancer.

The NDT’s were the business in Dunedin back in the 80’s regularly packing out the student pubs of the day.

Then came For Today which also put the spotlight on up and coming singer Annie Crummer

In spite of receiving huge airplay For Today could only get to number 3 on the singles charts, how could that happen? But this Kiwi classic has been elevated to anthem status by being used at All Black tests in recent years.

Sadly the success of The Netherworld’s couldn’t last and the band went their separate ways with Malcolm becoming s highly successful record company A and R man, entertainment lawyer and manager of talent like Neil Finn.

Rest in Peace Malcolm Black ONZM
