In 1996, one Kiwi band achieved an extraordinary feat that few local acts have been able to achieve since. 

OMC quickly became household names after their hit How Bizarre hit Number One in New Zealand - as well as in Australia and the United States. 

The song has had a lasting impact, even breaking out as a viral TikTok trend last year. 

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the song's success, the album How Bizarre is being re-released on vinyl. 

Simon Grigg, who funded and released the song, joined Tim Dower to discuss how the song came to be and it's long-lasting legacy.
