This fantastic compilation of Auckland punk, circa 1979(ish), is a treat for NZ music historians and rock’n’roll lovers. There’s early iterations of bands that went on to greater fame, and much higher production standards, but their brilliance is well in evidence.0 comments
This is the headline: “THREE YEARS OF BIN WATCHING AT JB-HIFI IN LOWER HUTT FINALLY PAYS OFF”
I had an absolutely brilliant haul of less-costly-than-second-hand, new records from the bins at the yellow and black shed. Believe it or not, this particular box set had sat in that bin for close to 3 years.
I was very pleased with myself as I took my bundle up to the counter along with this triple vinyl box. It was slashed from $100+ to $50.
However, that was not the end. Much to my surprise it was slashed by a further $26 at the till. It ended up costing me $24.
And what a brilliant thing it is. 32 exceptional tracks over 6 sides including rarities and covers from such artists as Courtney Barnett, Neon Indian, Sleigh Bells, Polica, Tom Morello, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Tash Sultana.
An eclectic mix in a fantastic package - it also includes a beautiful 36 page commemorative book and poster.
