White was the manager of The Stomach, which served as the focal-point of Palmerston North’s underground music scene in the 1990’s and he self-produced and released their extremely rare 7″ single and 10″ EP lathe’s individually (with handmade covers) on old EMI blank acetates.

(Late in 1996) Dave White left Palmerston North to run Nelson’s Community Arts Centre (renamed The Artery).
