Aro Recommended Struggle No More


New Zealand 2006, 85 minutes
Dir. Costa Botes
Rating: [M]
Genres: Music, Documentary / Jazz & Blues


Aroview: Affectionate tribute to veteran Wellington band 'The Windy City Strugglers' who formed in 1968 to play a mix of blues, soul and jug-band music and are still going strong almost 40 years later (although they ironically point out their lack of financial success and continuing obscurity).

Begun by an Australian draft-dodger, Bill Lake, the lineup has over the years seen various local musos pass through, and stay, in its ranks including Rick Bryant, Nick Bollinger, Geoff Rashbrooke, Andrew Delahunty and Ross Burge. This documentary captures the groups self-effacing style with considerable charm, along with some nice additional oral history from Graham Brazier and Midge Marsden .
