Abstract

Not Drowning, Waving formed in Melbourne in 1983. Over the next decade they became one of Australia's most original rock bands, recording a series of inventive albums and attracting critical acclaim."--BOOK JACKET. "Music At The Borders provides a detailed history of one remarkable facet of their career, their long-term engagement with the music - and musicians - of Papua New Guinea. Individual chapters analyse the Melbourne music culture from which the band emerged, the musical style they developed; their work with musicians associated with PNG's Pacific Gold Studios; and the band's re-union for the 1996 Sing Sing tour."
