So, OMG, this is my final post for the Wellingtonista. I’m leaving this town for a more northerly location. I’m sad to leave Wellington and the W’ista, but it’s been a fun four years. I’ve met lots of cool people, had lots of amazing experiences and shared them with y’all.
As my farewell, I present the music video for “Money Worries” by MC OJ and Rhythm Slave, a new addition to the splendid NZ On Screen music video collection. This Aotearoa hip hop duo were from Auckland, but their 1991 video was filmed entirely in Wellington.
Much of the action takes places in and around Shed 21, before it was converted into fancy apartments, and there are plenty of other glimpses of the city when it was still a bit boring and grey, just on the cusp of becoming Absolutely Positively Wellington.
It also features Mikey Havoc, hair flailing as he screams down Lambton Quay. Brilliant.
So farewell, Wellington. You’re quite a choice city.
