The Dunedin Sound: Some Disenchanted Evening

Unit price per


Within the colourful, cut-throat, ever-evolving world of popular music, New Zealand's southern-most university city, Dunedin, achieved what numerous other music-rich locations around the globe could only dream of: international recognition of its own sound. Like the Mersey Beat, the Nashville Sound or the Seattle Sound, the Dunedin Sound is known and respected the world over.

Equally revered are the bands involved, such as The Clean, The Chills, The Verlaines and may others you will encounter in this salute to Dunedin's finest. Kicked off by the inimitable punk-infused force that was The Enemy in the late 1970s, and carried to the world throughout the 1980s and beyond in true seat-of-the-pants style by the Flying Nun record label, nobody could have foreseen the huge impact and lasting legacy that a pool of young songwriters and musicians from unfashionable Dunedin would create. Within these pages their extraordinary feat is revisited with the stories and select discographies of an array of bands, and critiques and reminiscences from band members, fans and those in the music scene. The Dunedin Sound is celebrated with a veritable feast of photographs and memorabilia, many of which have never been seen before.
