Looking for Amanda Reid from Hamilton... 1980s

Postby chrisbucks » Sun Jan 13, 2008 11:16 pm

The the flat I lived in last year had this bunch of shit in the basement and my flatmate at the time was a bit of an arsehole, some of the stuff he threw out included someones personal documents and stuff. Anyway, I rescued this briefcase from the inorganic and it was full of photographs, there's a couple of hundred photos in here.

Anyway, I thought I'd try match them up with their owner, from what I can gather... the owner is Amanda Reid, most of the Kodak Pouches are from Kodak shops in Hamilton.

Anyway, there's some shots of art displays with Amanda Reid: Visual Merchandising on them, so I'm guessing thats her... and she appears in a lot of the photos.

Also the guy whos name seems to be Brett. One of them has a photo of his 21st dated 1987. So that makes him/them 42 now. So this is probably a major stretch finding them through here.

Some of this stuff is retro as fuck, and if it's not claimed I'm making it into an art project... but thought I'd at least take a shot at finding the owner since there's several years of photos in here.

There's a couple of photos of the girl at an HMV store, so I guess she worked there in the 80s. Anyway, thought I'd give it a shot before they become collage.

Yeah there's a point actually... didn't think about facebook. Wasn't going to bother with myspace or anything... wrong demographic. Not really going to spend too long on this though heh.

I kinda vaguely recognize her... I'm from Hammers and am 42, so I'm in the right cohort... Lounge looks kinda like my mum's, but it's not...

Will ask around for ya

Pretty sure that I was at that same Mudhoney gig too - some fucker stole my car and I had to hitch home way late at night... Car got found and returned, but it turned out that it was used in a bank-job and I had to take it back in to be dusted for prints... Be a laugh if it turned out that it was Brett who stole it.

She looks heaps like someone who comes to gigs occasionally at the Kings Arms. I'm thinking one of the Rock'n'Roll crowd? Possibly an associate of Slavetrader?

Yeah. Fat lot of help that is!

Nah, I reckon you're right. I'm pretty certain that it's an Amanda who was hooked up with Michael 'Skinny' Simons (aka DJ Skinny, ex-records.co.nz) for ages. Pretty sure she was in the D4/Slavetrader crowd. That last photo defo looks like a young Skinny to me (and a little like that tard from the Brunettes). He was probably from down Hamilton way too cos I stayed at his old's there once.

John Baker (posts as Velvet Tiger on here) probably has contact details for her.

I left a message on the Slavetrader Myspace, but who knows how often they check it. Or even if the right person will see it.


This is kind of fun. Like the Kevin Bacon game, only it might actually be useful.

That was such a cool shop. I think one of the dudes from the Irritants worked there. I brought a heap of my Discharge LP's from that shop. haha.

I also recognize that girl, but my crowd from then was a little more shaved of head if you catch my drift. :)
