Heard It Here First – The Newtones

Heard It Here First – The Newtones

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

Tony Peake was a crucial figure in the development of the Christchurch punk and post-punk scene. The charismatic Peake was also a performer but his early bands ­– the punkish Vandals and the more experimental Street of Flowers – never recorded. He left his mark with The Newtones alongside bass player Mark Brooks (another major player in the Garden City punk scene with The Vauxhalls) and drummer Graeme van der Colk (in his first serious band).
