There aren't many record labels still releasing music from their foundation artists more than two decades down the line. And where there are, they're not putting those foundation artists on the same record as their latest, fresh-faced signings.
But, then, there aren't many labels like Flying Nun Records. New Zealand's most widely-known musical brand isn't just a cult back-catalogue but a creative going concern that is, amazingly, enjoying some of its most notable international success as it approaches a quarter of a century in business.
