With 82 episodes of tomfoolery behind me, I decided to “get serious” and play only top-shelf sub-underground rocknroll music this time, and put together a 1-hour set of total barnburners that I’ve got a hankering you’re gonna like.
With new material from LOS CRIPIS, bAd bAd, VIOLENT CHANGE, KATHARINE DALY, LIQUIDS, TIM PRESLEY and SUBURBAN HOMES, what’s not to like? I’ve filled in the gaps with crazed teenage riot material from CLONE DEFECTS (pictured), TEDDY & THE FRAT GIRLS, K4, SUN CITY GIRLS, DEAD C, DOW JONES & THE INDUSTRIALS and much, MUCH more. Please let me know what you think and send your song requests (no “Institutionalized” nor “Bitchen Camaro”, please!!) to firstname.lastname@example.org.

This mix, available on Mixcloud as “…and the Maggots Dance, 1…2…3 from the Dead C’s Bruce Russell was made over two years ago on behalf of an online and terrestrial radio station and Flying Nun Records. It’s a selection of ultra-rare New Zealand small-indie label postpunk, punk and experimental rock music from the 1980s.
It’s, as Bruce says repeatedly on this nostalgia-laden, hour-long show, "phenomenal”.
He’s a terrific jockey of discs, and if anyone knows if he’s done any similar shows like this please let me know where I can hear ‘em.
XPRESSWAY were the darker, more experimental record label cousin of New Zealand’s Flying Nun. Operating out of Port Chalmers on the South Island, Xpressway was originally a late 80s/early 90s cassette label and later branched into singles and LPs. They were a real cult taste there for a while, putting out early moody, shape-shifting sounds from the Dead C, Alastair Galbraith, the Terminals and more.
This ad came from Siltbreeze magazine #6 around 1990 or so. (Yes, before Siltbreeze was a raunched-out music fanzine before it was a label). Tom Lax from Siltbreeze was probably Xpressway’s biggest US-based champion; I’d certainly never heard of the label before he started yakking about them and running cool ads like this one.
