Sorry, out of stock.

The story of The Garbage & The Flowers, by some measure Wellington's most brilliant pop band, is equal parts classic underground rock'n'roll and a hazy ramshackle history pockmarked with bursts of genius and stoned rehearsals. Naming themselves after a line in Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" and taking cues from The Velvet Underground, the band has existed in some shape or form since, with help from Paul Yates, Heath Cozens, Torben Tilly, Rachel Davies, Kristen Wineera, and Stuart Porter. Garbage & The Flowers' really did seem out there, on their own, absorbed in their own world, dropping gem after gem of fractal noise-pop onto slowly corroding four-track cassettes, willing these songs into existence just long enough to let them catch breath and glide away from the speakers for a few moments, before Frusin and Johnstone would knuckle down and write yet more beautiful melodies for beautiful losers. This is a rock'n'roll classic which will whip the wigs off all the crystalline clowns today. Includes a bonus full-length disc of additional material (compilation tracks, previously unreleased material, etc.), plus a 24-page booklet with notes and photos. - Fire/Bo Weavil Recordings
