Smoke Notes

Long overdue compilation of out of print 7" inch single tracks spanning the labels first fifteen years from 1981 to 1996. This perplexingly titled compilation (from what i can gather, an FN office in-joke taken too far?) has some lost gems, some classics and some less obvious choices, most available here on CD for the first time.
Denise Roughan & David Mitchell's (Half of the legendary 3Ds who went on to become Ghostclub) "Crying Room" could possibly be one of the most beautiful songs to come out of Flying Nun (certainly in the 90's era anyway) and is almost worth the purchase price alone. The same goes for Dimmer's "Dawn's Coming In" - originally the b-side to the legendary "Crystalator" single that introduced the world to Shayne P. Carter's first musical output post-Straitjacket Fits - Charmingly lo-fi and minimal, it is at odds with the Dimmer we know and love today.
Other notable mentions include the labels inaugural single; FN001 – "Ambivalence" by the Pin Group, and tracks by Olla, featuring future members of King Loser (KL's Celia Mancini, Chris Heazlewood and Sean O'Reilly all get solo tracks on here too), Children's Hour, Queen Meanie Puss as well as Nun luminaries Chris Knox and Snapper.
Some not so obvious, but welcome choices include Chainsaw Masochist, The Strangeloves and Rik Starr which add a bit of variety to this compilation and help ensure it's "Not just another Flying Nun comp."
For the legions of loyal Flying Nun followers, this compilation will be Manna from heaven. Hopefully it's not the last thing we see from this great label.
