Anthology

Merge MRG-220

4xLP Box Set
£41.99


Insane, beautiful career-spanning set in a hard slipcase that gathers virtually everything from this legendary New Zealand underground group: this one has it all, running from the “Tally Ho!” debut through the Boodle Boodle Boodle and Great Sounds Great EPs in full, with raggedy 4-track recordings by Chris Knox of legendary material like “Getting Older”, “Anything Could Happen” and “Point That Thing Somewhere Else”. Then we have the great post-hiatus LPs, Vehicle, Modern Rock and Unknown Country as well as bonus tracks that appeared on 7”s and flexi-discs. This is the true motherlode, the blueprint for the NZ garage sound bled straight to tape and one of the great, original groups at the absolute apex of their form. Highly recommended.
