Pink rip off
From Dunedin's Radio One - newsletter..
"Okay so Radio One isn’t exactly a big fan of Pink… or even a small one. But have you seen her latest video "U + Ur Hand"? Did you notice the fact that her ‘stylist’ (or whoever squeezed her into those wee leather outfits) obviously came across some of Marty Emonds' (artist/co-founder of Illicit) art and decide to blatantly rip it off!! Three of his characters Rockerbikergirl, HardCandy and Baby Redknuckles were “borrowed” without Illicits knowledge. I bet Marty Emonds is turning in his grave as we speak. Pink, you thief!!"

Rumours on the internets
A few people have been asking me about a Hallelujah Picassos reunion gig. We had been approached to do a show for that splendid Wellington establishment Bar Bodega for their 15th birthday and were keen, but have had to pull out due to work commitments. Sorry if we got your hopes up.
