Anna Coddington is one of New Zealand’s foremost heroines of independent pop music, as is clearly evident on her debut, self-produced album “The Lake?, due for release in June 2008. Coddington has been quietly kicking around New Zealand’s music scene for some time now. You may have heard her singing in the background of some well known tunes by artists like Bic Runga, Anika Moa, SJD, Dimmer and more, or in the foreground of a handful of casually released pop gems by her bands Handsome Geoffery and Duchess.

In this live session recorded for the Radio Wammo show on Kiwi FM Anna plays three tracks called Never Change, Hold You Here and What a Shame off her debut album The Lake.

Sam is preparing for a trip to the Bay of Plenty all the while listening to the noises in his head and observing Armo, a very skilled digger driver who has been demonstrating brilliance near Sam's home. Sam remembers a poem by Dylan Thomas (1914-1953) called In My Craft or Sullen Art

In my craft or sullen art
Exercised in the still night
When only the moon rages
And the lovers lie abed
With all their griefs in their arms,
I labor by singing light
Not for ambition or bread
Or the strut and trade of charms
On the ivory stages
But for the common wages
Of their most secret heart.

Not for the proud man apart
From the raging moon I write
On these spindrift pages
Nor for the towering dead
With their nightingales and psalms
But for the lovers, their arms
Round the griefs of the ages,
Who pay no praise or wages
Nor heed my craft or art.

New technology meets old when Sam runs a wire across his living room....
