Biography

This New Zealand band specializing in 60s garage punk rock were formed in Dunedin, a college town at the bottom of South Island, in 1988. Veteran singer/guitarist Peter Gutteridge was a founder member of both the Chills and the Clean, the island’s two most inspired outfits of the late 70s and early 80s. Their debut album emerged on the tiny Avalanche label, based in Edinburgh, Scotland, a country that has long harboured a predilection for Antipodean pop. Songs such as ‘Death And Weirdness In The Surfing Zone’ were typical fuzz guitar workouts, with Christine Voice’s organ augmenting the sound. Gutteridge’s love of the Velvet Underground and Stooges shone through much of this and their subsequent work. Feedback and distortion is their trade.
