Third part of the New Zealand selections of obscure acts, this time with a few brave men from this lovely country. Recordings are low-fi for the majority of the tracks, that means that they just used slightly better equipment than Chris Knox's 4-track! As for the quality, I believe you won't be dissapointed. We have Suka in a track reminding of the best Xpressway music, a low-fi recording of the Rip with a great (as usual) work on violin from Alastair Galbraith. A naked, yet moving song from Brian Crook of Victor Dimisich Band and Renderers leads to an equally strong strong song from Kitset - same mood but ritcher arragement with horns etc. Fats Thompson continues the Xpressway tradition of raw and aggressive guitar-based songs. Things go wilder after this, starting with the very loud (for NZ music) Lung , the primitive sound of Sferic Experiment and Shayne Carter in one of his most wild moments.  A short pop track from Mestar leads to the jazzy Love Theme of Matt Middleton and the spacey Cosmodrome from Parsec. Dean Roberts and Peter Wright (both prolific writers) continue in this relaxed atmosphere. For the end there's a bonus track from Mr.Gordon Wallace, a nice little tune, perfect for a night beside the fireplace.
