Mid-70s Auckland band Salty Dogg: Graham Chapman, Chris Gunn, Mike Harvey, Vic Williams and Martin Winch. They recorded the Mike Harvey produced album Love To Play And Sing for EMI and a don't-drink-and-drive single with Radio Hauraki.

Benny Levin booked Howard Morrison through much of the 1970s

Admin_thumb_spaces

The Spaces were one of those bands caught between pre-punk and new wave. Whilst the Christchurch band were popular as a live act their three singles on Bunk and CBS never really clicked with the record buying public.

Admin_thumb_waves

Auckland band Waves – Dave Marshall, Graham Gash, Michael Matthew and Kevin Wildman – recorded one critically acclaimed album in the mid-1970s for Direction Records. Seen here, probably at The Globe Hotel in Auckland's Wakefield Street, Gash would record a solo album in the early 1980s and Marshall would go on to Lip Service and Martial Law.

Admin_thumb_x7

Hamilton band Flight X-7, who began life as Flight 77, were very much in the mould of Mi-Sex. Tim Powles and Warwick Keay were later in The Knobz and Jeff Clarkson has carved out a huge career over the years with ambient CDs.

Admin_thumb_pbs

A mid-1980s pack-em-in at the pubs touring band put together by New Music Management: Graham Brazier, Dave Dobbyn, Jenny Morris, Mike Chunn, Peter "Rooda" Warren and Dave McArtney. The image is a cut and paste of other PR shots.
