While all the specialized media makes it more difficult to find commonalities, the internet and forums like Reddit also make it easier to find other people that share interests.

Great discussion

I loved this show. The only problem I had is that I wanted to be a part of the discussion! Well done!

Me Too

I got really behind on my podcast playlist while on vacation this winter (I've just heard this at the end of October) so Kevin bet me to say that I wished I was part of the discussion.

I could not find any evidence to support this, but some of Seth Frightening's songs have a very 'Kiwi' sound to them. This sound/style was common among bands on New Zealand's Flying Nun record label from roughly the mid 80's to mid 90's.

I was going to add more to this comment but there is just so much to say from my own experiences and also from watching how my children consume media that I really need to record a proper response to this.

re: Me Too

Hey blindape.

Seth Frightening having the Flying Nun sound is probably accurate; I found the album in a random Kiwi op shop.

Shortly before moving to NZ, I found a Chris Knox CD on the street (literally, it was lying in a gutter) and absolutely FELL IN LOVE with not only Chris's music but also that general sound and feel. I've been really enjoying discovering Kiwi music and Kiwiana in general.
