I was interviewed by Kim Hill for Radio NZ in her famous Playing Favourites program. It’s a great format, a casual, informed conversation interspersed by songs I have chosen. Kim is a stalwart interviewer with broad knowledge on many subjects. We discuss my recent Black Pin award, the Financial Times redesign, the NZ flag debacle and bogans.

I was also asked to provide accompanying images for the Radio NZ website. The only images appropriate to the music I had chosen were a series of famous metal logotype interpretations that I’d drawn a while back. Can you pick what they are?
