Heard It Here First – Bill Direen and The Bilders

Heard It Here First – Bill Direen and The Bilders

Heard It Here First celebrates the fringe, challenging and brilliant musicians who you would have heard about first on RDU throughout the years.

Six Impossible Things, Soloman’s Ball, Die Bilder, Bilderine, Bilder Bergers and the Builders, they all had one thing in common – Bill Direen.

The Christchurch musician and songwriter’s art and sound was at the core of one of the most sustained bodies of quality New Zealand indie music in the early to mid-1980s. A prolific composer, Direen’s intellect and energy took in and spun out poetry, film, theatre and literature.

‘Alternative Radio: RDU98.5FM since 1976’ is on at Canterbury Museum, Rolleston Ave until August 14.
