Louis Rawnsley and Archie Bowie from New Zealand’s legendary sixties blues band, the Underdogs, talk with Neil Parker about the NZ music scene in the 1960’s, the band’s various line-up changes and what it was like to be regarded as ‘rebels’, playing blues in a predominantly rock/folk environment.  Small music breaks near the end of the interview.
