From a spare room in Christchurch to the living rooms of the world, indie record label Flying Nun was the innovator of an era.

We invite Flying Nun founder Roger Shepherd and music aficionado Grant Smithies to the stage to talk about the label that brought us The Chills, The Clean, Chris Knox, Tall Dwarfs, The Verlaines, Sneaky Feelings, The Bats, Straitjacket Fits and many more. A perfect Saturday afternoon of riffing, wild anecdotes and the reasons why we are still In Love with These Times.

Flying Nun defined several decades of New Zealand music. Here’s a great interview with Roger Shepherd written by music critic Kiran Dass. And to stir the nostalgia strings go and have a listen to some of your favourites to get you in the mood: Pin Group’s Ambivalence, The Clean’s Anything Could Happen, and The Chills’ Pink Frost.
