Picked this up at Psychamok Records in the Wirral, Merseyside - the guy who runs the shop has a deep knowledge about bands from this part of the world. I managed to find some other hidden records too (one including a Z'EV record - YES!). There is something against the grain about music produced in New Zealand. It's like a game of chinese whispers has started on the other side of the world, got there and just been completely off tangent to the original message.
