Wellington of the early 1990s was a ground breaking place. Taking its cues from international treads it was setting itself on a path that would in future years garner it the title of "coolest little capital in the world". Wellington had always had a vibrant and forward thinking music scene however moving into the 1990s its experimentation and individualism was about to be pushed to the extreme.
Merging from the thriving punk scene of the 1980s it was time to up the anti from angry youth to intellectual thought and chronic self expression, a catharsis of sorts.
Unfortunately due to the lack of physical media production facilities in New Zealand most this music was left in the live environment. 30 years later with the resurgence of the vinyl record a compilation of bands from this influential period in Wellington music has been pulled together to plug this hole in the New Zealand musical landscape.
