Justin Gregory investigates the phenomenon that is country comedy band The Lonesome Buckwhips.
In Episode 2, the months between the sinking of the Interislander ferry and Gary Buckwhip's arrest (as an accessory to poaching) have been shrouded in mystery. Justin Gregory sheds some light on what really happened in the time that became known as the Buckwhips' 'dead period' - when fans of the band, and people the world over, were in deep shock.
All music composed arranged and performed by The Lonesome Buckwhips (Arthur Meek, Miriama Ketu, Ben Hutchison and Gareth Williams) under special commission from RNZ. Originally broadcast in July 2009
