      Is there a big scene for garage rock and related noise from here? Just curious... I always hear of great bands from Oz, but I wasn't sure about New Zealand.

      Ms Springolator pretty much said it all! there's Boss Christ as well. New Zealand has a great history of bands and especially Garage stuff. Recently there was a concert of reformed 60's bands playing and it was amazing!
      We're coming back to Oz! maybe the U.S soon too...

      Can't tell you about any current Kiwi bands but I have always been a big fan of the Gordons and Bailter Space for that almost No wave noise they produce.
      Head Like A Hole, The D4 also have spent a bit of time on my turntable. Gimme some time and I reckon a few more bands will spring to mind.

      PS I forgot to say that Antipodean Screams Vol 2 (Off the Hip) has nearly all of these bands on the comp, plus a whole swag of Australian goodies.
