Smoke Notes

“Sandy Denny and Ozzy Osbourne had a baby, and they called it the 3Ds”

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.

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.
