Thursday 12th May, 2011 9:09AM

Flying Nun are set to release a new 3Ds record which includes digitally remastered versions of their first two EPs, Fish Tails (1990) and Swarthy Songs For Swabs (1991) along with seven previously unreleased demo tracks. The album was researched and compiled by Bruce Russell of the Dead C and will be available from May 30 here in NZ and June 14 in the US.

Here are two tracks from The 3D's - Early Recordings 1989-90, more info below.

Press Release:


Researched and compiled by Bruce Russell (Dead C) The 3D’s - Early Recordings 1989-90 is exactly that - a selection of tracks from the Dunedin band’s formative years. The compilation features seven previously unreleased demo tracks, alongside digitally re-mastered versions of the band’s first two EPs - Fish Tails (1990) and Swarthy Songs For Swabs (1991). 

Done on a porta-studio, many of these unheard demos were originally recorded for Xpressway, and the album also includes a version of Meluzina Man off the Xpressway Pile Up compilation and the unheard track The Burrymen. The compilation also includes a 16pp booklet with liner notes written by Bruce Russell detailing the history of the band. 

Having re-released The 3Ds three albums - Hellzapoppin’ (1992), The Venus Trail (1993) and Strange News From The Angels (1996) - last year, Early Recordings show how this melodically noisy outfit, that went on to influence the likes of Superchunk and Pavement, all began.

Early Recordings 1989-90 is set for release on Flying Nun Records in New Zealand on May 30 and the United States on June 14.
