1985 was my final year living in Wellington which was a great time to be living in New Zealand’s capital city. This song still can take me right back to those times – to friends, lovers, flatmates and events. 

1985 was the year the homosexual law reform bill debate started including the infamous “Nuremburg rally” – the protests, the nuclear free legistation, Rainbow Warrior bombing and the protests against the proposed All Black tour to South Africa which was cancelled.
Enjoy the song from the Netherworld Dancing Toys – and the ferry’s still run between Wellington and Picton and are as amazing as the video – though the weather isn’t always that smooth.
