GAS-Compressed Gas 7" E.P. Now Out Of Print.


Gas is a Christchurch trio whose members have fronted/rocked some of that city's more key outer fringe bands (McGoohans, Scorched Earth Policy & The Shallows to name but three). Recorded between 1996 to 1998, the six tracks that make up 'Compressed Gas' are a heady mix of unspecified Nuggets era Garage/Psych meets the miasmic, Post Industrial streetwaves of Hearthan era Pere Ubu. Like I said, six tracks=fourteen minutes of music, edition of 300. If you can find a better deal, I'll buy you a cracker.
