“It’s so good that, before I’d even finished it, the 16-year-old had pinched it and was engrossed. I still haven’t got it back.” - Sonja de Friez, Nine to Noon reviewer on Radio NZ National.
As front-woman for NZ band Minuit (minwee), Ruth Carr has always known the power of words – they are her currency.
Full of one-liners, poems, lyrics and short tales, Ruth takes us deeper into her world with her debut book 'I Felt Like a Fight, Alright?'
The result is a darkly humoured look at life, death and what it is we do ‘while we’re here’.
Back in 2003, when the band released their gold-selling debut ‘The 88’, Russell Baillie predicted in the NZ Herald: “Minuit have something many electronic acts studiously avoid - a sense of personality.”
That personality blossomed into a world travelling act, and here Ruth Carr has captured the much-quoted quirkiness of character in her new book, giving us a peek inside her head – though just don’t make any sudden movements or stare directly at it for too long.
An unexpected and genuine piece of New Zealand writing from a woman who is never one to preach but often has the whole ‘congregation’ singing along.
As Rolling Stone magazine wrote about her band’s latest album ‘Find Me Before I Die A Lonely Death dot com’ – “Despite an album title as black as midnight, Minuit’s music is often as joyful as a fat kid with cake.”
