Smoke Notes

This DVD is what arguably many New Zealand music fans will find simply essential. Flying Nun has long been the label that is most often associated with New Zealand music, particularly that of an "indie" or "alternative" nature, with a slew of unique acts over the last twenty years or so that have defined "independent" music in this country. And so to 'Very Short Films: Flying Nun DVD'. Containing a massive 41 videos, from the early days of The Clean, Gordons, Great Unwashed, Double Happys, Bored Games and Verlaines, through the creatively "heady" days of The Chills, Straitjacket Fits, Headless Chickens, Tall Dwarfs, Chris Knox, The Bats, JPS Experience, 3Ds, Bailterspace and Snapper, to more recent successes such as Bike, Garageland, HDU, The D4, Panam, Betchadupa and The Mint Chicks, plus numerous points in-between, this is a superb visual overview of this important slice of New Zealand's pop music culture. My one small gripe - in order to represent all bands fairly and equally (as is the Flying Nun way of course) a number of the label's "heavy hitters" such as The Chills, Straitjacket Fits, Verlaines, The Clean, Headless Chickens, Bailterspace, JPS Experience, etc only get one video a piece. Like I say a very small gripe, and maybe the perfect reason for a volume number two (here's hoping). Actually there are some quite fantastic songs and clips here, which all simply confirms the validity of Flying Nun's vision and credibility in the world of "indie" music today. Thoroughly recommended.
