1. Product Details

Often obscured by the ascent of Flying Nuns legendary roster is New Zealands late 1970s / early 1980s punk scene. Based in Auckland a cadre of acts influenced by The Ramones and Stooges briefly thrived. The Dum Dum Boys-the first NZ punk band to record and release a full-length in their native country-were hooked on the Ann Arbor sounds of Iggy Pop. The Dum Dum Boys Let There Be Noise 1981 is chock-full of James Williamson and Deniz Tek riffage it also contains elements of Iggy Pops nihilism. Take the lyrics to Something To Say-its refrain repeatedly asking What am I living for-and juxtapose them to the bands namesake track from Pops The Idiot 1977: What happened to Zeke Hes dead on jones man. Stalking The Streets taps into the meaninglessness of James Taylor and Dennis Wilsons Two-Lane Blacktop journey through the American Southwest.The Dum Dum Boys understood the proto-punk sounds of 1970s Ann Arbor and Cleveland. More importantly they also got the vibe. Life stinks-sometimes in the places Auckland youd least expect it. As the title suggests Let There Be Noise is anything but a record incessantly focused on introspective doom and gloom. Dont Be A Bitch rivals Radio Birdmans I-94 for lyrical thick-headedness-like sticking a hot 454 in a Ford Falcon gasser the songs simultaneously awesome and dumb. Thats a difficult balance to strike. Let There Be Noise 1981 was self-released and copies quickly became damn near unobtanium even in New Zealand. I should know: I lived there. In The Red has performed a major service by reissuing this obscure and outstanding record. Independent New Zealand releases from the early 1980s didnt get their due distribution out of the country was essentially non-existent. Its nice to see that finally getting corrected. -Ryan Leach Terminal Boredom
