Bird Nest Roys Compilation on 2LP + Download
Bird Nest Roys were a six piece guitar pop band formed in Auckland, New Zealand in the mid 1980’s. Despite a large geographical distance between their home suburb Grey Lynn and the depths of the south Dunedin, Bird Nest Roys were associated with the ‘Dunedin Sound’ wave of bands that kick started Flying Nun Records.
It is Bird Nest Roys' knack for off-kilter Kiwi pop and quite literal layered guitars (out of the six person line up, four were holding guitars) that assured the band’s popularity in New Zealand. In their short existence of four years, the band produced an EP, full length LP, and a single 7", as well as the platform for members to later become pivotal members of The 3D’s and Snapper.
Reissued for the first time - as part of Flying Nun and Captured Tracks extensive reissue campaign - is the band’s entire previously released discography, as well as unreleased/unrecorded live material. Presented as a 2LP-set with previously unseen posters, flyers and ephemera. Remastered for the first time specifically for vinyl from the original vinyl source.
