Julia Deans of Fur Patrol Performs 'Lydia' - UTR Trash Recital

Julia Deans of Fur Patrol Performs 'Lydia' - UTR Trash Recital

We're thrilled to share the sixth episode of UTR presents Trash Recital Season 2 — starring Julia Deans of Fur Patrol, produced by Sports Team and made with support from NZ On Air!

For each episode of Trash Recital we've invited some of our favourite Aotearoa artists into the UTR studios to perform one of their songs, re-created using everyday items selected from Sports Team's stockpile of recycled junk. Trash Recital not only provides a launchpad for stunning reimaginings of recent (and soon to be) classic tunes, but also the perfect opportunity for a chinwag with our local musical heroes.

Our new episode stars Julia Deans, iconic lead singer of Fur Patrol, who are reuniting this month for their long-awaited PET nationwide tour — celebrating the birthday of the group’s seminal 2000 debut album (recently reissued on vinyl LP). Deans popped into the studio to cook up a beautiful new version of Fur Patrol’s NZ Music Award winning classic ‘Lydia’, reimagined on the spot using glass bottles, rusty scissors, chains and even a car tire. All the while regaling us with her famed banter and candid memories of Fur Patrol's struggling early days, watch Deans create musical magic in our latest episode of Trash Recital and don’t miss Fur Patrol touring in August — details below...
