No-8, kiwi staple, fix anything it will, keep it all in, keep the other buggers out, baaaaaaa, 4mm soft galv, moving times, forward thinking, modern technology, internet, RSS, forums, digital this, satellite that…still a place for No-8.Pods, cages, traps, vortices, vessels – broadcast, listen close, public opinion, private conversation, can I tell you this in confidence?

The audio ranges from mechanical sounds to full conversations and rants. Gathered from a variety of sources the audio references historical NZ figures as well as anonymous mass media characters from YouTube, Google Video and Vimeo.
