Cringe Worthy is a groovy, tubular, dynamite blast from the past that is equal parts nostalgic, humiliating, and hilarious. Taking you back to NZ in the 1970s when the cultural cringe was in full swing, it’s a smorgasbord of contagious songs served with a side of bell-bottoms and a huge dollop of cheesy comedy.
Mark Williams, Bunny Walters, Suzanne, Craig Scott, The Fourmyula, Creation, John Rowles, Blerta and more sashayed into our living rooms, performing original songs and covers of overseas hits. Kids today can tune in and out as they please. We, on the other hand, ended up being forced to listen to songs we didn’t necessarily even like... until now!
