NEW SINGLE ON OFFICIAL WEBSITE: The new
Dobbyn single "Just Add Water" is now up on the official website at www.davedobbyn.co.nz. The
song will remain online in its entirety until Dave's new album is
launched in early August 2000. NEW!
Dobbyn "Best Of" is out! Sixteen classic tracks plus a a re-recorded
"Be Mine Tonight" and a new song, the Beatlesque (think "Abbey Rd"
b-side) "Madeleine Avenue".
DOBBYN-101: So, you saw
Dave supporting Shawn Mullins in Australia and want to know where to start when it comes
to buying his albums? Check out the Beginner's Guide.
A NEW OUTLOOK: The first
single The New Outlook from Dark Tower's upcoming album, samples DD Smash's Outlook
For Thurdsay, and features vocals by Dave Dobbyn himself, and he also appears in the
video (as a mafioso-type crime boss no less!)
PETITION: Don't you think
Dave would make a great addition to the cast in the Peter Jackson directed Lord of the
Rings trilogy being filmed in NZ presently? Bilbo and Frodo could do with the
assistance of the bard hobbit, Dobbo. Jackson wouldn't even need to use expensive computer
technology to shrink Dave down to hobbit size! Sign our petition
to get Dave on the cast (or at least the soundtrack).
PRINT: This Website makes
it to NZ newspapers! Read the "Nostradobbyn Article",
then enter the Nostradobbyn Contest. The site's NetGuide award
also made the NZ Herald & other NZ newspapers in late 1998. The Nostrodobbyn page was
the focus of a TV interview on TV1's "Good Morning" in Feb '99.
CONTEST: The trivia contest
with a difference has closed; You sent me your trivia, you didn't
have to answer obscure questions! The entries are up, and I will post the prize to the
winner very soon!
GREEN-RIBBON: This website
supports the Green-Ribbon Campaign to increase
local content on NZ radio and TV (and by TV I don't mean crap like April's Angels
& shows hosted by Suzanne Paul). NB: These views do not (necessarily) represent
those of Dave Dobbyn.
Remember, if it's before Armageddon, then it's not too late to take
part in the NOSTRADOBBYN CONTEST!!Hurry!
The world could end at any time.
A very special
"Thank-You" goes out to Colleen Matan, for
hosting and co-creating / updating "The Belltower" before its transfer to
GeoCities. Sadly Colleen has had to hand full control of the site over to me due to her
hectic schedule, and lack of proximity to Dave styled goings-on. "The Belltower"
looks forward to future articles and contributions from her.
Submissions? Additions? Corrections? please send to Jon-Paul.
