Today's Great New Zealand album features a band which shares the title for most number one albums for any New Zealand artist with Hayley Westenra.  They have five each.  And this band has had more Top 40 chart singles any anyone else in New Zealand (25), three of which made the top ten.  They also have three of their songs listed among the top 100 Kiwi songs of all time.  

They are Shihad, and talking to us from Melbourne this afternoon are founding members Tom Larkin and Jon Toogood
