We’ve been keeping this under our hats for a while — we’re over the moon to announce our new web series created in collaboration with the talented gang at Sports Team: UTR Trash Recital!

For each episode of Trash Recital we’ve invited some of our favourite Aotearoa artists into the UTR studios to perform one of their signature songs, re-created using everyday items selected from a treasure trove of literal trash, collected by Sports Team from Tāmaki Makaurau’s finest op shops / second hand stores. Trash Recital not only provides a launchpad for stunning reimaginings of recent classic tunes, but also the perfect opportunity for a chinwag with our local musical heroes.

Our first episode stars Imugi 이무기, the Tāmaki duo of Yery Cho and Carl Ruwhiu, who dropped by the studio to play their student radio smash hit ‘Greensmoke‘ using such everyday items as kitchen tongs, a rubber chicken, a pink bin, office knick knacks and more. Imugi 이무기 play the Saving Hope: A charity show for the pups! extravaganza this Friday 7th May at Galatos [tickets available here] — watch episode one of Trash Recital right here and stay tuned for episode two in a fortnight’s time, starring a secret yet to be announced special guest…
