Barnaby Weir and pals have gone platinum with each of their previous three versions of Fly My Pretties and there's no reason why this particular bird shouldn't soar just as high.

There are too many high points to mention here - suffice to say that when you mix The Black Seeds, Fran Kora, L A Mitchell, Flip Grater, Amiria Grenell, Anna Coddington, Eva Prowse, Aaron Tokona, Age Pryor, Justin Clarke and Ryan Prebble, the result is all that's best with New Zealand music - covering and combining every genre between avant-garde pop, country and hard blues rock.

Just watch for an explosion of fantail- related tattoos around the student campuses and coffee shops of this fair land.

The 16 new songs on the CD and DVD represent the best takes from November 2011’s sold out tour. These new songs were performed, filmed and recorded live across nine sold out shows to over 10,000 people.

Visual/street artist Flox - aka Hayley King - created artworks for each of the songs that were brought to life through projection, animation and visual trickery.

These visuals have been uniquely mixed with the live video to create the accompanying DVD.
