Go To Town

Stunning copy both vinyl and cover in great shape.

Fronted by Roy Montgomery, The Pin Group emerged out of the early ‘80s Christchurch, NZ post-punk scene and have become an archetype for nearly all indie bands ever since. Recommended for fans of Joy Division, Wire and Flying Nun. First ever reissue, includes liner notes by Liz Harris (Grouper)

 

“The Pin Group went back into the studio in January 1982 to record their third and final classic release. Featuring an expanded five-piece lineup with Mary Heney on guitar/vocals and Peter Fryer on viola, Go To Town is a work of taut perfection. Showcasing the band's dramatic chiaroscuro textures and arresting lyrics, "Long Night" and "When I Tell You" make staggeringly clear how much sonic ground The Pin Group covered in their unfortunately short tenure.”
