IT is a wonder New Zealand pop-rock band GOODSHIRT found time to record its new album Fiji Baby. Goodshirt toured Japan last year, played in front of fans across Europe and gave Australian audiences a taste of its live show during the BIG DAY OUT. Somehow band members also managed to spend time at home in their garden shed to record a new album.

Recording in the backyard is a tradition for the band which also recorded its first independently released album, Good , in the tiny shed.

Vocalist RODNEY FISCHER said the band was still reeling over the opportunities that had crossed its path.

With a new record to promote, Goodshirt has returned to Australian shores to join SPIDERBAIT on its ALRIGHT TONIGHT national tour.

Fiji Baby is an 11-track offering brimming with the quirky pop tunes for which the band has become renowned.

While Goodshirt is yet to score a major hit in Australia, back at home it is one of the country's top acts.

Sophie won Goodshirt the Single Of The Year at the 2003 NZ MUSIC AWARDS .

The new single, Buck It Up , is out now.

Goodshirt will support Spiderbait at the BAR ON THE HILL tomorrow night with GROUND COMPONENTS. Tickets to next week's show are available on campus from the CONTACT OFFICE or on the door.
