Morr Music - Not Given Lightly

From RNZ Music

New Zealand's alternative music scene in the 80s made a lasting impression on the rest of the world. As a young man in divided Berlin, Thomas Morr was throwing shapes in his bedroom to The Clean, the Chills and the Tall Dwarfs. Now all grown up and the founder of a successful indie and electronica label, Thomas decided to pay tribute to his early heroes. 'Not Given Lightly - A Tribute To the Giant Golden Book Of New Zealand`s Alternative Music Scene' features artists from Thomas' label Morr Music from Germany, the States, Iceland - and even New Zealand. Julie Hill caught up with Thomas Morr in his nice cool studio in Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg, as the temperature outside soared well into the 30s.
