Running 10 music blogs for my fav bands would be too much work, so they’re all here on one page. Toni from New Zealand 90's music fanatic. I read a lot so you'll find plenty of quotes about music and also you might have to endure my artwork and current obsession with Matt Corby's music. [It could be a long term thing...just sayin]


Matt at West Coast Blues n Roots April 2014
Matt Corby was, of course, fantastic, after a few technical issues with his foldback, Corby drew us into his lyrically genius world. Although he didn’t engage the crowd as much as he could have, the true fans were more than happy to bask in the Corby glow as he closed his eyes and delivered his songs with feeling and his trademark gruffness. Of course the crowds voices swelled to sing along to Resolution and Brother. - coastlive.com.au/

Eddie with ‘K’ on his shirt - over his heart, for Kurt 

Saturday Night Live April 1994

In Utero was the first time I’d made an album that reached into the dark side. I remember the conflict and the uncertainty. I remember all those things when I hear Pennyroyal Tea or All Apologies. After Kurt died…I went to Lollapalooza…nobody ever recognised me back then…and I was waiting for the next band and All Apologies came over the PA. The entire audience started singing along, and I started crying….it wasn’t that long ago we had lost Kurt.
It’s still hard to listen to it….it kinda breaks my heart that was the last album we made.

"The first thing you notice about Corby is his passion for his craft. During his first song, he throws down his earplugs in disgust as technical glitches muddle what should have been a simmering opening. But by the time Corby hits his groove with the song Brother, he manages a wry smile. There is a lot to like about the New South Welshman. But his reluctance to engage with the audience isn’t one of them."

"Kurt seems like he could have existed 30 years ago, like he could have been on tour with Joe Walsh or Led Zeppelin in the early ’70s. And he writes songs that — even though they sound new — also sound like they could be from that time, too. He knows 40 years of rock’n’roll, but he’s trying to do something new with it. He has this really sad voice, but in a good way, like he’s a much older person than he is, like he’s been through a lot of shit. He’s an old soul."
