Flying Nun


The kind folk at AudioCulture - "The noisy library of New Zealand music" - have allowed us to republish their story map which explores the early locations of Flying Nun in Christchurch.

by Gareth Shute

Gareth Shute is a writer and musician, who writes regularly for pop culture websites such as Audioculture and The Spinoff. He has also published five non-fiction books about music and the arts, including Hip Hop Music In Aotearoa which won a national book award.

The map below shows some of the locations that were important in the creation and growth of Flying Nun Records in Christchurch up until it left the city in 1988. The personal addresses shown are only approximate locations to respect the privacy of those now living there. 

The map is best viewed on a desktop/laptop/tablet. If you wish to zoom in on any particular location then double-click. 

AudioCulture have produced a lot of great articles about Flying Nun over the years, including: a fascinating and sometimes hilarious tour diary written by Russell Brown while on tour with The Chills back in 1987; Shayne Carter’s reminiscence of the short life of his first band, Bored Games; and an investigation into Dunedin’s influence on Flying Nun written by Amanda Mills.
