i've Wikified myself (it albiet briefly) -- isn't it time redinsect/kreig publishin'/molemusic/woweezowee/every single band in town does likewise?

Perhaps we could find ourselves a suitable image for the front page? Ideas? --GianPerrone 13:55, 5 April 2006 (BST)

With so many categories in big letters, it was looking unweildy, so I shrunk them all. Do you know how to change the pic on the left Gian? --Danduran 10:12, 6 April 2006 (BST)

Looks good, Dan. I might try bolding the headings. If it looks arse change it back. Chur. --Lemon 11:13, 6 April 2006 (BST)

Looks good. --Danduran 13:18, 6 April 2006 (BST)

Question: Are The Datsuns regarded as a Hamilton band or a Cambridge band? If so, then they seem out of place on a Hamilton music knowledge db unless perhaps we wanted to call this a Waikato Band Info/etc. wiki. --Matt 05:25, 10 April 2006 (BST)

Good question. Although I did orginal put "Hamilton and surrounding areas" on the band criteria... how far do you take it though? Up to everyone's discretion I guess. Did they play predominantly in Cambridge or Hamilton? --Lemon 05:48, 10 April 2006 (BST)

Also...the "Bands" title, it seems there are a few Htown solo artists out there that don't actually perform with any one but have produced releases. Not bands as such. i.e. J.Harry.Long, & Craig Williamson's Lamp of the Universe. Chur Irie

The Cambridge thing basically made good press, considering how oppressive and dinky the town is. Apart from a couple of talent quests and Rockquest-criteria-fulfilling 20c lunchtime shows in the school hall, Trinket didn't really play in Cambridge. Although they're all 'from' the town, I seem to recall the band played its early 'local' shows at Hamilton venues, and really found its feet while the members were split between Leamington, Hamilton East and Auckland. I think defining where a band is 'from' is very much a matter of feel or identity. (see also: Mi-Sex, Dragon, it could even be easily argued Split Enz were an Auckland band)-- petra (can't be arsed logging in, sorry)
