Yesterday I was pointed to Whatevers (not the Leeds based indiepop band called The Whatevers, just Whatevers) and I love them to bits :-). It's the second time I've been told about them but the previous time I thought they meant the other band so I didn't check them out.

Their shortest song is eight seconds long and they only have one song longer than a minute and a half. This is the closest you can come to an objective measure of quality in pop music.

Here they are: https://whateversss.bandcamp.com/

Listening to Whatevers made me think about Auckland band The Coolies. They haven't really been mentioned around here. I'm not sure what happened to them but they have a few things on youtube, including this,




It says that was recorded on 9 November 2002 at the Pinnacle Club. You can see the building that club was in at 24 St Benedict's Street in Newton. It's quite striking and seems to have been a Masonic Hall at some point.
