Peter Jefferies
Last Ticket Home

Peter Jeffries should possibly be more well known than he is. He was in two excellent 80s era New Zealand bands in Nocturnal Projections and This Kind of Punishment before embarking on a long and idiosyncratic solo career. Last Ticket Home is his latest album and is a collection of rare singles, unreleased tracks and live interpretations from the period 1991 to 2019  - a veritable smorgasbord of treasures showcasing his unique and singular vision.

This Kind Of Punishment
In The Same Room

I'd forgotten that This Kind of Punishment released and album after their classic A Beard of Bees. In The Same Room appeared in 1987, three years after A Beard of Bees and showed the band in a more straightforward zone at odds with A Beard of Bees more chamber folk type offerings. The brothers Jeffries are legends in the New Zealand scene and this is one of their most intense deep listening records.

Nocturnal Projections
Inmates In Images

Brilliant but short-lived New Zealand legends Nocturnal Projections barely released an album in their lifetime (their studio recordings have been collected elsewhere as 'Complete Studio Recordings') so it's nice to see a release of these live recordings. Direct from the board, they showcase the talents of a band who, had they continued, could well have been put alongside Joy Division and Wire as post punk greats.

This Kind Of Punishment

Following the demise of their previous band Nocturnal Projections, New Zealand brothers Peter and Graeme Jeffries began to deconstruct their post punk sound into something more pastoral and intimate. This became the handful of recordings they made as This Kind of Punishment. This is superb, intimate and thoughtful music with classical and baroque overtones.  

Nocturnal Projections
Complete Studio Recordings

Right, this is absolutely essential. Nocturnal Projections were the original post punk band of brothers Graeme and Peter Jeffries (This Kind of Punishment/The Cake Kitchen/solo) and though they never released an album in their lifetime, they deserve to be placed alongside post-punk legends such as Joy Division, Wire  and the Fall. This collects all their studio recordings in one place for the first time.

This Kind Of Punishment
A Beard Of Bees

New Zealand's finest gloom brothers, the Jefferies, worked their way around post-punk swirl in a variety of bands and had the pleasure of releasing it for classic labels like Xpressway and the esteemed Flying Nun. Their best project was This Kind of Punishment, where their more experimental inclinations came to life; A Beard of Bees was a record of strange movements tethered by their dirgy melodic inclinations.
