NZ Music Awards: Straitjacket Fits win Legacy Award

The Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards were held in Auckland tonight and one of the highlights was Straitjacket Fits picking up the Legacy Award.

The band formed in Dunedin in 1986 and defined the newly emerging Flying Nun sound of Dunedin. They were popular in New Zealand despite being originally ignored by mainstream radio.

After touring the USA, Europe and Australia, and with a number of successful hits under their belt including ‘She Speeds’, ‘If I Were You’ and ‘Down in Splendour’, Straitjacket Fits disbanded in 1994.

David Farrier sat down with the band before picking up the big prize to see how they felt about it.
