The Soft Hair of Connan Mockasin

Monday 14th November / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

2007. New Zealand musician Connan Mockasin meets UK singer/guitarist/synth-player Sam Dust at a party. They’re both accused of stealing an ornamental pig.

Sounds like the plot to an alt-pop fan-fiction, but it’s real life. As the two got to know each other over the next year, Mockasin went on tour with Dust’s old band, Late of the Pier.

They started making music together under the name Soft Hair, and now, almost a decade later, they’ve finally released their self-titled debut.

It’s the sound of a new friendship — crazy and poppy and hilarious and absurd.

Connan joined Breakfast with Caitlin on the line to talk about the newfound collaboration.
