Stones, The - Three Blind Mice (2015)


Unit price per



Curated by New Zealand/Noise legend Bruce Russell (The Dead C, Xpressway Records), with liner notes by Shayne Carter (Straitjacket Fits, Bored Games), design + illustrations from Alec Bathgate + Chris Knox and mastered by Tex Houston (The Clean, 3Ds). - Flying Out Records

"The Stones were birthed by singer/guitarist Wayne Elsey's decision to quit Bored Games to start a band that sounded like The Clean. Their debut came on the 25th April 1981 at an Otago University, a gig headlined by Bored Games (Shayne Carter) and new comers The Chills and Verlaines (a line up which in retrospect, would make any Flying Nun/low fi pop fan drool). Elsey's vision for a band that sounds like The Clean didn't really come to fruition. The Stones were too bright to not to create their own sound, one wrapped in braggadocio and swagger. Fast, aggressive guitars, driving rhythm section with a knack for fluid pop structures. Charismatic and smart, The Stones had the ability to sound completely empathetic and threatening all at once." - Shayne P. Carter

"The Stones were a Dunedin band: 1981-83. During the cultural highpoint of southern New Zealand music these three Romans with a 1970s Falcon station-wagon floated it with the best..." - Bruce Russell.
