Pioniere, fondatore, musicista cardine del “Dunedin sound”. Scompare ad Auckland all’età di 53 anni Peter Gutteridge fondatore dei The Clean, The Chills, The Great Unwashed fino ai più recenti Snapper. Importanza nodale che viene così ricordata dalla label storica Flying Nun.
We are greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Peter Gutteridge today. Peter was a Flying Nun original, a founding member of The Clean, The Chills and of course his own brilliant band Snapper. A great talent, he was also member of the Great Unwashed, involved in many Dunedin bands and went on to release beautiful solo material across the years. All of us, and so many people around the world, have been touched and effected by his music, whether it be the swirling fuzz of the guitar or haunting piano melodies, Peter was a true hero of New Zealand music, and will deeply missed. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends at this very sad time. Thank you Peter for all the music, may you rest in peace.
