The group’s original name was Unrestful Movements In The Vegetable Patch. This version of the group performed at the Railway Stage of the Sweetwaters music festival in 1982 shortly before Wilson and Curreen moved to Wellington.
Tim Hunt previously played in A Front and Grenville Main in Insects That Jive On Crippled Grass Blades (with a debt to Janet Frame). What is it with Wellington and ungainly band names?
Writer Steve Braunias blogged on www.witchdoctor.co.nz: “Unrestful Movements! Good live band – the records were terrible, very boring. Onstage, they were loud, theatrical, menacing. Offstage, they were quite sweet, but also pretty thick. The singer was tall and had high hair. He did that Satanic growl thing. One of my favourite live bands of the time.”
