Colin Hogg and Roger Shepherd offer guidance in a crowded world, following their well-worn whims, picking up on the new, reconsidering the old.
WHO ARE THEY?
Roger Shepherd is notable for founding a whole new branch of alterative rock music when he launched Flying Nun Records as a child at the start of the turbulent 1980s. He has also enjoyed a brief career in the wine retail trade, but retains a vivid, perhaps obsessive, interest in music and music related literature. His first book, a musical memoir In Love With These Times will be published by HarperCollins in June this year. It is widely anticipated.
Colin Hogg is notable for his music writing, reviewing and interviewing, especially in the 1980s in Auckland for the newspapers there. He has also made many TV documentaries, mainly concerning writers, musicians and artists. And he has published eight books over the years, the latest, a travel memoir Going South, just last November. Like Roger, he remains music mad, though their tastes differ.
