This is total dream-come-true material. I found the Australian cassette release of this album back in 2014 at the tiny and excellent Wellington record store, Death Ray Records. I had to have it, if only just for the legendary track 'Gaskrankinstation' with its lyrics of the boring life of a boring every-man in a boring job in a boring town, and the violence simmering barely below the surface, and its absolutely brilliant video clip at an old Shell station. This is well and truly a New Zealand masterpiece of an album. Subsequent missions around town would heed the blasting of 'Choppers' (sadly missing from this reissue, but thankfully the stonking remix from the Oz release is included here). Also included on this reissue from Flying Nun Records is 'George', the surprise smash hit from 1994. As well as being the first #1 hit for the Chickens, it was also the first number one for Flying Nun. This track still kills. Get a hold of your own piece of music history right here, available on LP or CD, or as an LP+CD bundle (select the format you're after in the order box).
