Flesh D-Vice Profile

Andrew Schmidt
8 May 2013

Wellington’s Flesh D-Vice picked up punk rock’s torch in the early 1980s and carried it proudly through the decade.

As the capital’s punk-heavy indie scene gathered strength and New Zealand’s punk rock community raised its head in the provinces the raw rocking quartet of Eugene Pope (guitar), Brent Jenkins (drums), Gerald Dwyer (vocals) and Richard Watts then Dwayne Yule (bass) remained active central figures, both live and on record.
