Phil Fuemana Profile

Peter McLennan
6 Jun 2013

''We saw music as one way of getting out of Otara. The music is about survival and creating a future where my family and their kids can be comfortable.''

Phil Fuemana continues, "It's not Flying Nun's fault that there is so much white music around, we're to blame for it. We should have our own label – Flying Coconuts or something – we'd all be bloody rich by now.'' (Stamp, 1994)
