The Terminals Profile

Andrew Schmidt
5 Jan 2016

Twos, pairs and halves mark The Terminals’ nearly 30-year musical life, from their mid-1980s Christchurch beginnings until the present day.

At the band’s heart are two of the South Island’s most enduring songwriters, vocalist Stephen Cogle, who wrote the music, and drummer Peter Stapleton, who wrote the often darkly humorous lyrics that Cogle sings in his unique cavernous voice.
