Flying Nun... early exploded pop from these semi-legends.
Researched and compiled by Bruce Russell (Dead C) The 3D's - Early
Recordings 1989-90 is exactly that. A selection of tracks from the
Dunedin band's formative years.
The compilation features seven previously unreleased demo tracks,
alongside digitally re-mastered versions of the band's first two EPs -
Fish Tails (1990) and Swarthy Songs For Swabs (1991).
Done on a porta-studio, many of these unheard demos were originally
recorded for Xpressway, and the album also includes a version of
Meluzina Man off the Xpressway Pile Up compilation.
The compilation also includes a 16pp booklet with liner notes written by Bruce Russell detailing the history of the band.
Having re-released The 3Ds three albums - Hellzapoppin' (1992), The
Venus Trail (1993) and Strange News From The Angels (1996) - last year,
Early Recordings show how this melodically noisy outfit, that went on to
influence the likes of Superchunk and Pavement, all began.
