extract from 'nzmusician'

Various: No Fear of Ridicule

This compilation features 17 tracks by Nelson women artists. There are various songs here worth a decent listening to, such as Shelley Burt's lovely piano song Long Night and Liz and Alana's Volcano which I like to sing loudly to in the privacy of my dancing lounge room. My favourite and worth everyone's listen is the first track by Minuit, Black Strap - a very danceable and fun track to do the housework to. I like this track a whole lot. Others tracks to grab my attention are Nina Lane, in her sultry vocal accompaniment to fine acoustic guitar prowess on Special and Kat whose poetry jumps out in Your Curiosity and Hot Jelly Scones with Big Name. Dead People's suave reggae also grows on you and Selena's unaccompanied and unsubtle lust song I Wanna ends well this interesting compilation of modern band sound, reggae, ska, rock and folk. Available from PO Box 566, Nelson • Mahinarangi Tocker
