About Six Noises

Six Noises features the writing of New Zealand-based freelance writer and radio producer Craig Hayes.

Craig’s work has appeared in magazines and zines at home and overseas. He’s a former columnist for US-based website of cultural criticism PopMatters. And he’s contributed reviews, columns, interviews, and feature articles to websites such Noisey, Invisible Oranges, No Clean Singing, Under the Radar, Radio New Zealand, Last Rites, Hellhound, Steel for Brains, Metal Bandcamp and more.

Craig has produced and presented interview and documentary segments for Radio New Zealand’s flagship music show, Music 101, including a two-part introductory history of the New Zealand extreme metal scene entitled South of Heaven. He’s also hosted and co-hosted specialist music shows on New Zealand stations Radioactive and Access Radio.

Craig is partial to myriad forms of underground rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, and noise. He is also extremely fond of Krautrock, any film featuring a shark, and a nice cup of tea.
