The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.

In July 2018, Flying Nun donated its collection of open-reel master tapes and other recordings to the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington where it sits for members of the public to check out. Then one lunchtime along comes William Daymond, a Flying Nun aficionado and student in Victoria University of Wellington's Masters in Museum Heritage and Practice programme. Daymond begins listening and discovers a discrepancy in the labelling of one cassette. This then turns into much more, and the birth of a wider project digging into the collection. 

Click through to this link here to read about Daymond's experience, told by the man himself. The story includes the discovery of unreleased material (which can be listened to in the link above) by The Phromes (the original name for Snapper), JPS Experience, and Breast Secreting Cake (before they were forced to change their name to Bressa Creeting Cake). Check it out!
