I've recently been pointed in the direction of this blog:
It looks like this guy is picking up right where I left off with Kiwi Tapes (and doing a much better job than I did, I might add). So if you are still in need of your kiwi fix, please go there...
I would kindly like to ask everyone to stop emailing me with requests for re-uploads. I don't know how I can be any more clear about this: This Blog is Dead and it's not coming back.
There will be no re-uploads of any kind, ever. And the same applies for my new blog Decrepit Tapes.
If I continue to get re-upload emails at the same frequency I am now (which is a ton of email), I will have no other choice but to delete this blog entirely.
Discs 1 & 2 posted today. Discs 3 & 4 will be posted tomorrow. I would like to thank all of the readers of this blog for their support. I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you to all the contributors who made this blog what it is by uploading all of the great gems and rarities over the past year. I am honored to have been able to spread such timeless and amazing music all across the globe. Please continue to buy this music and support the Kiwi artists and music scene in any way you can. Spread the word, and make sure that this music lives on and never dies. Thank you all again. See you again soon.
