Notes

"Being somewhat pre-historic myself I can still remember the good old days when saturday night was a toss up between the Androidss & the Newtones - These days the local music scene is about as exciting as a bankers convention in Tauranga.
Failsafe has done what no other record or tape has done -> captured the full & varied 5 year history of Christchurch music.
Over the years there have been numerous moves to put out a ch.ch. album, but nothing EVER EVENTUATED. Most bands on this cassette are now DEFUNCT & sadly Nick Carter of Playthings is no longer with us.
5 Bands on this tape are currently playing and DESERVE YOUR SUPPORT.
Well, thanks to everyone blah blah blah, but my special thanks to every daytime radio station [except student radio] in New Zealand for their usual promise to never play or support anything on this cassette."
