"Mother Goose were a rock and roll band from Dunedin who had significant success in the late 1970s in Australia. Their unique and quite hilarious video for the 1977 single 'Baked Beans' was amongst the most played clips across the Tasman that decade."
Murray Cammick, Audioculture.com
1970s Dunedin rock band MOTHER GOOSE were Craig Johnston and Steve Young (from The Biggles) Peter Dickson, Dennis Gibbons and Marcel Rodeka (from Argus). They reunited in 2007 as part of Re:Sound Three Decades of Dunedin Sound for a live concert at the Regent Theatre on Friday 23rd March 2007 along with The Chills, The Clean and Sneaky Feelings.
Argus do reunite every now and then and in case you didn't know - just played live at the ROBBIE in Dunedin last week!
We will definitely let you know if we hear of any upcoming live performances...
Another little side note - many Dunedin drummers have been inspired and taught by Mother Goose drummer Marcel Rodeka... including two of our RELICS team - Sarah Williamson and Bebe James... here's a little of what Marcel has to say...
Ok, so, check out this super fun MOTHER GOOSE music video from back in the day!
