I think Ameruhkinz are confused by the 2 terms, liberalism and neoliberalism. Liberalism usually refers to liberal politically as in open-minded socially and semi-progressive--sort of in the vein of F.D. Roosevelt or J.F. Kennedy. Neoliberalism refers to an earlier liberal or laissez faire economics as in Adam Smith, right? So neoliberal = unbridled capitalism. Hence, much confusion.

@Robb... I live in Dunedin where the Chills are from, not only is their new keyboard player a friend of mine but they sung me happy birthday at a gig on my 21st birthday many moons ago. Great great band

There's a CRAZY amount of great bands from here, both from the 80's and now. I'm very lucky

Holly - Terre T did a NZ show a few years back, it was mostly Dunedin bands as I recall

Yeah I've heard quite a few local bands played on wfmu, The Dead C, Opposite Sex, The Clean, Snapper (one of my ultimate favs)...

I think it was this one - wfmu.org...
  Fri. 1/13/17 5:52pm modchick65:

I keep hearing her say "Wawa." And it reminds me of Wawa, the convenience store. Not that one shouldn't sing about Wawa the convenience store. In fact, at an old job, three of us would always walk to Wawa for lunch together, and each day there would be a "Wawa Song of the Day." You can sing most songs to include "Wawa" in the lyrics.
Avatar Fri. 1/13/17 5:52pm Rob Kopp:

If there's any 'OLD' NZ-stuff I could recommend it's, beside The Chills, The Tall Dwarfs. This song starts with 1 instrument and ends with 30! www.youtube.com...

Avatar    Fri. 1/13/17 5:54pm Linda Lee:

modchick65 ~ apparently wawa is equivalent to 'booboo' in english. as i 'i have a booboo'.
  Fri. 1/13/17 5:54pm Holly from New Zealand:

@Christine.... The Mint Chicks put out a great album called Crazy?Yes!Dumb?No!... anything from early flying Nun, the Skeptics are spectacular, The Clean, Tall Dwarfs, Chris Knox, definitely check out Snapper, Look Blue Go Purple. More modern (not knowing your tastes) Orchestra of Spheres, Opposite Sex...
Avatar    Fri. 1/13/17 5:54pm Linda Lee:

song apparently says, kiss my booboo.

Love the Tall Dwarfs and their solo stuff is nothing to sneeze at, either.
