time period - 1982 - 1984.
A very strange band but also strangely good. These guys
had some connection with the Auckland group the Features.
Guitarist / Singer Ljinon shared a similar shard-like
guitar style and vocal approach to the Features.
The band had some sort of abstract art thing going and
could either be really good or bloody awful depending on
They featured Vince Pinker on Bass Guitar, who later went
on to be part of the resurrected Gordons (sans Alistair
Parker), and a few drummers.
"Eat Shit" was actually quite cool to watch live and I
remember watching Ljinon playing the guitar stabs in this
slicing his fingers on the guitar strings, bleeding all
over his guitars white scratch plate. At the end of the
song he asked the bemused audience if anyone has a band
aid. No one did.
