First-time legitimate reissue of this New Zealand post-punk classic (STH Music 1981) that uncaps a ferocity at the time unheard not just in New Zealand, but in most corners of the global underground fraternity (with the possible exception of The Gordons’ debut seven-inch).

Straight To Hell
(Siltbreeze - SB160) LP $16.00
Jagged, scabrous genius that remains previously unheard no more, thanks to the massive tape library of famed New Zealand underground music archivist Bob Sutton. This white-hot live scorcher was culled from a set at the infamous Billy The Club in the early 1980s. Guitarist Kevin Hawkins slashes and rips strings from his ax like a mad butcher; the rhythm section of Jessica Walker and Christopher Plummer is par excellence, while the sneering, contemptuous vocals of singer S. Brent Hayward spit like poison darts. Download card of the entire album plusthe tracks for the Shoes This High seven-inch (SB161). Edition of 500.
