NZ On Screen: Fat Freddys Drop - Based on a True Story

Fresh from the excellent NZ OnScreen,
Just up at NZ On Screen - this documentary follows the "seven headed soul monster direct from the shores of Wellington" - Fat Freddys Drop - as they rumble their dub-rich sound like a Houghton Bay roller through Europe."

"Touring to showcase album Based on a True Story, it features rehearsals and performances, eating Italian kai moana, playing concrete ping pong in Berlin, and a jam with Cliff Curtis. Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe lauds the 'fullas' and Mu Explains whanau to German music journos. True Story sold 120,000+ copies and dominated the 2005 New Zealand Music Awards."
