The Orange Profile

Rarely seen outside of Dunedin’s Oriental and Empire Taverns, The Orange was one of a strong crop of mid-1980s Dunedin groups who found an outlet through Flying Nun Records.

Formed in early 1984 after a chance meeting in Dunedin student pub the Captain Cook, the soaring psychedelic trio of Andrew Brough (Blue Meanies), Jonathan Moore (Bored Games/ Newbergs) and Peter Bragan debuted at the Captain Cook’s Battle of The Bands in March. Putting initial doubts aside, in mid-1985 The Orange decided to “make a go of it.”
