Just wondering if anyone knows what is being said at 1:00 in Frenzy, if it's in any particular language or if it's just simply gibberish.
I think it's just one of Noel's nonsense/scat rants, with occasional snatches of something almost intelligible - "Honky tonky, shake it all about, had it right up to here", etc.
I think he mentions the Maori chief "Te Rauparaha" towards the end. Could make sense as he ended his days in Otaki, not far from where Noel grew up - so he may have been familiar with local legends. Could be wrong.
