Scorched Earth Policy Going Thru A Hole In The Back Of Your Head on Limited Edition LP + Download Coupon
Siltbreeze is proud to announce the rerelease of the complete catalog from legendary Christchurch band (and Flying Nun alumnus) Scorched Earth Policy. From 1983-86, the group blackened the skies with a unique sound equal parts Southern no wave and post-apocalyptic surf, adding the trademark tinges of ’60s garage/psych that coursed through the veins of every great Christchurch band from that era.
Not that this should come as a surprise, as their membership was a veritable who’s who of the city’s finest musicians: Peter Stapleton (Vacuum, Pin Group, Terminals), Mary Heney (25 Cents, Shallows), Brian Crook (Max Block, Renderers, Terminals), Mick Elborado (Terminals, Shallows, Gas), Andrea Cocks (Missing Piece Productions) and Andrew Dawson (Dedicated Human).
During their existence, Scorched Earth Policy produced two 12-inch EPs for Flying Nun; their entire recorded output is presented here for the first time as one comprehensive LP, Going Thru A Hole In The Back Of Your Head, pressed in a limited edition of 500 copies with download coupon.
