hawaii five-0

mid to late 90s christchurch band known for their organ sound and catchy singles – especially ‘hurricane bob’ (produced through peter king’s lathe-cutting facilities and put out on the tiny beat atlas inprint that also spawned the terrific barnard’s star) which actually won a bfm music award as the best unreleased song in new zealand. unfortunately they never released any further recordings (except for an appearance on the dollar mixture compilation and on ‘indie hit disc #6’) and disbanded in the late 90s.
