Re-ups: Straitjacket Fits - Hail/Life in One Chord (1988), Missing From Melt ep (1991) MP3/Flac
The first items to be restored are from none other than the finest band the nation of New Zealand has ever produced, the Straitjacket Fits! Perhaps not as "seminal" to some Kiwiphiles as The Clean, Tall Draves and yes, the much revered Chills, Shayne Carter and crew nonetheless made a far greater and lasting impression on this pair of eardrums. I re-introduce to you their first album, Hail, intermingled with the contents of the Life in One Chord ep. I've set up an additional link to their Missing From Melt ep, featuring outtakes and alternate versions from 1991's Melt, the Fits second album. Please refer to the original entries for tracklistings and my initial write-ups. BTW, the Triple J Wireless Session from 1991 that I posted isn't active at this time, as I may have misplaced some of the files.
