2:20 Great NZ Concerts - Fleetwood Mac (Athletic Park, Wellington 1980)
Today's great New Zealand Concert features one of the biggest bands in the World in the late 70's. Fleetwood Mac enjoyed unprecedented success with their 1977 album Rumours, but by the time they reached Wellington in March 1980, the strain of four years of constant touring, an a much less successful follow up album was begining to show. At Athletic Park the band finally reached tipping point resuting in a very public spat, a stage walk off and a less than satisfied capacity crowd. This afternoon we remember that less than memorable concert.
3:10 Feature Interview - Henry Olsen
Tuesday- The first real test in the race for the White House is next week when voters in Iowa gather to decide who they want as nominees for their party. On the Republican side, there are 12 contenders who vary wildly from Donald Trump the millionaire and reality TV star, to former President George Bush's brother Jeb. Henry Olsen, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, gives his insights into the ideologies at play that have put Donald Trump at the top of the polls in a party that is traditionally conservative. His book is "The Four Faces of the Republican Party: The Fight for the 2016 Presidential Nomination."

Adore Life by Savages
BODY:
Nick Bollinger reviews the second album by all-female foursome Savages.
EXTENDED BODY:
Nick Bollinger sounds out the second album by all-female foursome Savages.
On the second album from London-based Savages it’s recognisably the same band whose debut came bearing the instruction: this album is to be played loud in the foreground. But if Savages’ music demands to be heard, what do listeners get in return for their attention?
In many ways it’s an old idea: guitar, bass drums and a singer with attitude. The tough angularity echoes post-punk bands like Gang Of Four and Wire; at other times P.J. Harvey.
The focus is inevitably on Jehnny Beth, the group’s singer. Beth is French, in contrast to the other three, who grew up in Britain. And though she sings in English (albeit with a strong French accent) there is more than a touch of the French existentialist about her. ‘Is it human to ask for more?’ she enquires in the album’s title track. ‘Is it human to adore life?’
If their earlier album shocked at times, toying as it did with transgressive sexual imagery – and included a song called ‘Hit Me’ – the new record seems to address and possibly clarify some of the questions raised by the earlier one. A recurring question in these songs is ‘what is love?’
One thing you are unlikely to get from Adore Life is a lot of laughs. Savages’ music is serious stuff, from Jehnny Beth’s searching philosophical questions to the whole band’s earnest riff-making.
Yet there is a hint the group might, in their own way, be lightening up. If their first album was a sonic study in black and white, Adore Life has more musical grey areas. ‘Mechanics’, the closing track, is a near-ambient study in shades, with what sounds like a bow being applied to both strings and cymbals, and the guitar amplifier being used as an instrument in its own right.
Savages might not do a lot that hasn’t been done before. Still it would be hard to find a band today doing it with more precision, power or purpose.
Songs played: : Evil, Sad Person, Slowing Down the World, Adore, When In Love, Mechanics, The Answer

EXTENDED BODY:
Nick Bollinger talks to Oklahoma rock'n'roller JD McPherson about his influences - from The Ramones to Shakespeare.
If I had to explain rock ‘n’roll to some visiting extra-terrestrial, I might play them Signs & Signifiers, the 2012 debut of 38-year-old Oklahoma-born singer-songwriter JD McPherson. McPherson plays rock’n’roll, at least as it was understood when the term was first applied to a strain of popular music some time in the 1950s. Everything from the honking saxophones and rickety rhythm to his twanging guitar and delirious vocals could have come straight out of that era.
Last year McPherson put out a second album, Let The Good Times Roll, and while it still finds him steeped in 50s rock’n’roll, it also shows more clearly that within those primitive forms he has found his own voice.
JD McPherson is coming to New Zealand, for one show at Auckland’s Tuning Fork on Saturday 27 February. I caught up with him on the phone ahead of his visit and discovered he had influences well beyond 50s rock’n’roll – including The Ramones and Shakespeare.
Songs played: Little Caroline, It’s All Over But the Shouting, Head Over Heels, Let The Good Times Roll
