Artist: TERMINALS, THE
Title: Uncoffined
Format: LP
Label: Hozac
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
“Remastered reissue of this debut, originally released on Flying Nun and recorded in 1988. "We are proud to present our first New Zealand band and luckily one of the finest to ever grace the Flying Nun label. The Terminals were a mid-late 80s-era super-group featuring many important shards of the Kiwi underground, including core members Peter Stapleton, Mary Heney, and Ross Humphries from the very first Flying Nun release, the monumental Pin Group, joined with Susan Heney from The McGoohans, as well as Stephen Cogle from Vacuum and Victor Dimisich Band. Hard to keep all those intersections straight, thats for sure, but this intense, brooding and ominous cadre of players have pulled together some of the darkest sounds to ever emanate from the isle. Its hard to pick favorites with The Terminals, but Uncoffined, their debut LP recorded in 1988, seemed like the best place to start. Its hard to believe something this dark and twisted could also be so catchy, sounding like not much else from the time, The Terminals never caught the indie rock afterglow that label mates The Clean, The Bats, or The Verlaines got, yet their catalog of dubious releases is still being discovered, even now as we speak. Remastered from the original tapes to revive what was lost in the haze of limp late 1980s studio mastering techniques, this improved version sparkles with hostility, the sheen of atmospheric shadows interlaced between tension-building crescendos, The Terminalss Uncoffined is a lost masterpiece of Antipodean, dark-wave, pop music, destined to reinstate its place in the annals of underground music history." --VictimofTime.com.

Title: Last Days Of The Sun
Format: CD
Label: Last Visible Dog
Country: US
Price: $12.50
"Last Days of the Sun is the fifth album by long-running New Zealand avant-garage kings The Terminals. Bruce Russell has often described them as New Zealands best rock band bar none, and these days they often get called legendary and while that may have as much to do with the fact they are in their twenty-first year they continue have a big reputation for the intensity of their live performances. Last Days of the Sun is their first release since the 1997 Terminals Live CD on Medication and the 1996 7" single Medusa on Chicago label Roofbolt. It combines driving garage-rock and swirling guitar/organ interplay with dark, brooding, melodramas and quietly haunting ballads. There are twelve songs of love and anxiety, with The Terminals characteristic ebb and flow dynamics and Cogles unearthly tenor soaring right over the top." - Last Visible Dog.

Format: 7"
Label: Roof Bolt
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Says Your Flesh, "a double-barreled shot of infectious, angst-ridden noise pop." The quintets blend of Southern Pacific Gothic and garage aggravation has never gotten its due, but longevity and patience may yet afford them the last laugh. After a moderately busy time in the early 90s, this 1996 single was their final studio release until 2008s Last Days Of The Sun. Features members of Flies Inside the Sun, the Renderers, Rain, Eye, and Sleep. " - Roof Bolt.
