New Zealand punk ain’t something I hear everyday. We’ve posted Spelling Mistakes and the more New Waveish Split Enz before. Here we have Suburban Reptiles with a bad ass record that I heard for the first time today. A haunting guitar melody and some mysterious synth sounds that fades in here and there makes Saturday a true keeper. Voted as the best song of the 20th century in 2003 on that little Lord Of The Rings iland. Oh yeah that track can also be found on the infamous AK79 compilation.
The flip 45 Single is just as great but more of a traditional punk rock ditty. Produced by Philip Judd from the hated and beloved Split Enz.
Rumored to have a pressing run of 200 copies. Sorry but a New Zealand rat have taken a bite on my sleeve. VERY common among them rats. THANKS AWESOME! SHRED ON!!
