***In the early '80s Onset Offset Records of Christchurch, New Zealand, released nine Krypton Hits compilations, most on small-run cassettes, one LP, a seven-inch, and a VHS videocassette, spotlighting brilliant local acts like THE RIPTOIDS, G.O.D., THE OXES, and NICK SLICK, along with tons of otherwise unavailable material by well known artists like BILL DIREEN/THE BILDERS, SCORCHED EARTH POLICY and THE PUDDLE, to name but a few. Unwucht's double-LP contains 28 Krypton selections and two archival tracks available for the first time: the full four-minute version of Bill Direen's High Thirties Piano; and a Devo-esque electro-punk track from 1981 by DROWNING IS EASY (featuring M.S. AGRO, later of the TERMINALS, on lead vocals). Includes two more early Bilders tracks (as THE CHERRY SMASH and RITUAL SEX), Scorched Earth Policy, The Puddle, RITCHIE VENUS & THE BLUE BEETLES, THE GORILLAS (STEVE MCCABE’s pre-AXEMEN high school band), WE TOO’S CRUSHED VELVET MORNING, a GEORGE HENDERSON solo opus from 1982 and tons more. Screen printed gatefold jacket, two pages of never-before-seen photos from the artists' private archives, two double-sided inserts of liner notes. Edition of 330.
