From Musical Chairs, 3:00 pm on 18 April 2013

In 2004 Dave McArtney (Hello Sailor, The Pink Flamingos) took time off the farm to perform songs from his first solo album in 19 years 'Hook' - as well as a couple of old favourites - in Radio New Zealand's Helen Young Studio. Intelligent observation, ironic insight, good humour, depth and texture are assured. Dave McArtney (vocals, guitar) is joined by Karen Hunter (percussion, backing vocals and second guitar), Paul Woolright (bass) and Alan Brown (piano). Live At Helen's was produced and engineered by Andre Upston for National Radio.The songs are: Do That Thing, Too Late to Comb Your Hair, Savage Little World, Infatuation (first performed by The Pink Flamingos), Beautiful Smile, Dolly (first performed by Hello Sailor).
