The sisters Runga, Bic and Boh, at the 1999 New Zealand Music Awards. Bic has the International Achievement award (few New Zealanders realise just how massive Drive was around the world) and Boh has Most Promising Female Artist, which of course she was, with Stellar cleaning up in 2000. The year before Bic had done much the same. An amazing family (there’s Pearl as well of course). Bic Runga at AudioCulture.

The cover of the 1970 single by The Arch. Only 100 copies were pressed but it’s notable as the first release by Paul Hewson who would later write a series of massive hits for Dragon, and the drummer, Peter Grattan, who would later drive the world a little crazy as PG of PG & The Hot Tips (‘Life Begins At 40’) and was the producer of a number of TVNZ music shows. The early Paul Hewson story is here.
