Shayne Carter: Dead People I Have Known

25 May 2019 | WORD Christchurch Autumn Season

In Dead People I Have Known, the legendary New Zealand musician Shayne Carter tells the story of a life in music, taking us deep behind the scenes and songs of his riotous teenage bands Bored Games and the Doublehappys, his best-known bands Straitjacket Fits and Dimmer. Carter appears live in conversation with WORD Programme Director Rachael King about the writing of the book – often poetic, often hilarious, always engaging – and the stories within, which feature bands, women, family and friends.
