There is an irony in the fact that the most evocative summertime song to hit New Zealand’s airwaves in 1994, Sisters Underground’s ‘In The Neighbourhood’, was released in the depths of a particularly cold winter.

The single peaked at No.6 in June 1994, although only Auckland’s MaiFm and the bNet stations played it at the time.
