'Time To Go - The Southern Psychedelic Moment: 1981-1986' Flying Nun Compilation
This new compilation on Flying Nun represents artists based in Christchurch and Dunedin who pioneered 'lo-fidelity' recording during the 80's. Don't be surprised to find this isn't entirely a greatest hits of bands you know and love, rather putting some lesser known artists in the spotlight who, like their peers strived for something new, different and kinda weird. Flying Nun has provided a snapshot of New Zealand's underground scene during the Muldoon era using recordings from Scorched Earth Policy, The Gordons, Tall Dwarves and The Chills to name a few. There's plenty to discover on this brilliantly insightful compilation, a true treasure trove.
Copies can be found at: New Zealand, Flying Nun UK, Norman Records and US, Midheaven
