The Great Unwashed have an important place in Flying Nun's heritage, a band that, over two very different records, created their musical space with some swinging psych-pop that still sounds fresh and enjoyable today, over ten years since it was made.
The Great Unwashed was formed in 1983 when The Clean temporarily broke up.
The Great Unwashed split after adding another member in Christchurch (nothing was recorded by the group's final line-up featuring former Pin Group member, Ross Humphries). All three members of the band have continued to play; David Kilgour for a while in Stephen and now with a solo career, Hamish in the reunited The Clean with David and Robert Scott, and with a new band in New York, Mad Scene; and Peter in Snapper
