The Centre Will Hold


Melodic mid 90’s (1996-8) Christchurch popsters (Nathan Bycroft, Jamey Holloway and Tom Mountfort).

Released 3 songs to student radio only – ‘Splint’, ‘At the Centre’ and ‘We Go Down’, and then a 5 track, 6 minute EP called the ‘A Flat Pop Songs’ (‘A Flat Pop Songs One’, ‘..Two’ ‘..Three’ and ‘..Four’ and ‘The Key’) which we made in Nathan’s lounge on the little four track and Mike Brassel (aka Mike Hex) sent it out on Noseflute for us.
