Songlines Across New Zealand
  A look back on Panam from the perspective of a fan (that fan being me)
Back in the year of 2002 I came across an interesting music video with a catchy song connected with it. The video consisted of  a band of puppets ( and yes I mean puppets that were playing puppet instruments) later I would find out the song was called Long Grass and the band behind the song was an indie band called Panam I would later find this song on a compilation promo cd called Heatseekers that came with the Rip It Up Magazine. 
I remember thrashing that song over and over. A little while later the band released an ep entitled New Concepts In Sound Recording which had Long Grass aswell as an early version of what would later be a single from their debut album entitled song 1.   
They did 2 tracks for the flying nun 21st cd under the influence Saskatchewan a cover (originally by Superette  ) and their own track Japanese girls
In 2012 they rerecorded and released another version of their previous track Song1
