Flying Nun Records was formed in Christchurch in 1981 by music shop proprietor Roger Shepherd in the flurry of new punk rock-inspired labels forming in the early 80s. The intention was to record original local music of Christchurch, but soon the label rose to national and international prominence by championing the emerging sound of music from New Zealand.
The label grew an incredible reputation worldwide from such success with bands and musicians such as The Clean, Bailter Space, The Chills, The Bats, Chris Knox, Toy Love, Straitjacket Fits, The 3Ds, JPSE, Tall Dwarfs, The Verlaines, David Kilgour, The D4, The Mint Chicks, and many more...
This includes Tall Dwarfs, The Exploding Budgies, The Orange, The Weeds, Dead Famous People
This was originally a 4 CD set, but alas the trolls had their way. Enjoy what remains.
