Robin Hinkley decided to
meet some locals by mak-
ing a music video on a
recent trip to India.
The song used for the video is
now one of 10 featured on the Wel-
lingtonian's first solo album, Coat
Hinkley said the song, Little
Fish, Big Teeth, was written while
he was in India with his wife. He
decided to make a music video for
it in Mumbai.
I had this connection with this
guy who was a DJ in India. We
recorded the song at his house and
then went into the market place
and hired a guy and a flash
camera,'' he said.
We met our friend the night
before and he asked us if we had
our recording licence, which you
needed to film anything in
We talked about it and called
someone who said the licence was
going to cost thousands of dollars.
We couldn't back out because
we didn't have a licence, so we had
bribe money and were going to try
to avoid the

spent the day
being followed by
the police from
market to market,
before they went

tery. As we were
going up the steps
this guy said, My
brother is in Bol-
lywood, but I'm a
cop and this is the police quarters
We'd gone right into the nest
and thought we were in big
trouble, but he didn't ask us for
He was just really hospitable.
The punchline is none of us
knew anything about filming, so
the footage we got was all weird
and the colours were wrong.''
The album is a diverse mix of
songs, from ballads and rock to
pop songs and folk music.
Hinkley said he felt the title
fitted the mix of music styles.
Each song really felt very dif-
ferent to write. It really is a collec-
tion of lots of different pieces.
I'm a primary schoolteacher
and we do this exercise where the
students invent a coat of arms and
think about what the different
I really enjoyed the idea of
doing that for myself and subvert-
ing it in some way. I came up with
the idea of taking something that
was just 2-D and symbolic and
making it come to life, which is
what we did for the album cover.''
He said it was hard making a
solo album after his band, Good
Laika, took a break from making
I was feeling like there might
not be enough creative input into
it, but it worked. I recorded it over
a long period, so that gave me a
chance to digest and build up
what I had already done.''
Coat of Arms was produced by
Age Pryor, and is available in
stores and online at iTunes and
Amplifier from November 16.
