This collection of articles is mainly focussed on New Zealand music, aiming to provide some kind of digital archive of these as many of the magazines or websites in question are either long gone or are no longer available, including a number of my own articles for mags such as Pavement. 

I am adding digital articles, and scanning the print articles and converting the text to make them available for research purposes only, and they are not for commercial use.  All copyright remains with the author.
