CD Reviews

The Dark Side of the Nun
D. Godfrey | Seoul | 04/21/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Pin Group are, of course, most famous for releasing the first ever 7" on Flying Nun records, the nigh on impossible to find Ambivalence/Colombia.
Pin Group are considerably darker than those more famous Nun pioneers The Clean. Rather Joy Division-esque, with strong, leading bass.
Roy Montgomery handles the guitar and (Curtis-esque) vocals.
Anyway, this CD compiles the first 2 7"'s Ambivalence/Colombia and (my favourite,) Coat/Jim along with the later Go to Town 12" EP and the early 1990's Siltbreeze released Coat 7".
Well worth owning if you have an interest in the darker side of NZ music."
