New Zealand Music Month: Sticky Filth

New Zealand Bands May 31, 2015

It’s New Zealand Music Month this May. New Zealand’s annual celebration of homegrown music. Generally, that involves a lot of mainstream media highlighting a lot of mainstream acts. So I’m here to try and redress the balance a bit. I’ll be posting a link to some rowdy New Zealand music for you to check out every day over the next month. Some bands will no doubt be familiar; others I hope will be fresh to your ears.


Sticky Filth
Powerhouse punk trio Sticky Filth are one of few New Zealand groups to have truly earned the title of a **legendary **punk band. Formed in 1985, and still going to this day, Sticky Filth built their reputation via infamous live shows, and hard-as-nails and belligerent working class songs. The band recorded their raw and ragged full-length studio debut, 1988’s Weep Woman Weep, in a single 16-hour blitzkrieg session. And the album deservedly holds iconic status in New Zealand music history.

Below is the title track from Weep Woman Weep. A song that resides in the hallowed halls of New Zealand punk rock, with a classic video that captures Sticky Filth’s early years to perfection.
