"A reissue of New Zealand post-punk band, THE PIN GROUPs complete discography. "THE PIN GROUPs short career was the perfect escape act-they produced a small but peerless body of work in adverse circumstances and in almost complete obscurity, and then evaporated before anyone could get a hook into them. A doubly impressive trick, when you consider that they also made the first record for Flying Nun, a label that was to define underground rock music for an entire generation... A big part of their mysterious appeal-apart from their unparalleled understanding of the ultimate drone-rock magic trick of how to hold one chord just too long-was their masterly visual presentation. From that first blackest-ever single it was apparent that not only were they New Zealands ultimate VU-inspired band (a palm for which moreover the competition was unspeakably intense in those days)-but they even had their own Warhol, in the person of RONNIE VAN HOUT. For that first delirious year he was a one-man design tsunami for Flying Nun, but it was his covers and posters for The Pin Group that represented his most perfectly-realized total artwork. A big part of my wanting to see Flying Nun get off the ground again in a new century was to get the chance to re-marry the sonics of The Pin Group with Ronnies silver Factory visual vibe of Brillo boxes and black helicopters. And this is it: a legend that defies time. Now you too have the chance to experience The Pin Groups irresistible blend of the puritanical with the libidinal-wrapped in a point-perfect distillation of proto-hipster psychedelic reference-points from the dawn of post-modernity."-Bruce Russell, September 2011.Vinyl includes a bonus CD with a previously unreleased live material, plus download coupon with both recordings." -Flying Nun.
