Xpressway was an amazing tape label run by The Dead C's Bruce Russell which survived through the early part of the 90's releasing a hotch-potch of out-there music from Dunedin and the surrounding areas. US cousins Drag City saw fit to issue this marvellous 12 track compilation thus gaining a wider audience for this oddball/exotic music. Amongst that audience was my brother who followed up his purchase of Pavement's 'Demolition Plot J7' by bringing home this collection. We played it on my grandma's stereogram, it sounded otherworldly, particularly next to all those James Last and Mrs Mills albums.
It contains snippets of songs, mainly around the one minute mark from the likes of Alastair Galbraith, Peter Jeffries, Dead C, Gate, Dadamah and David Mitchell (of 3D's) its lo-fi, full of squeaks and distortion yet has a murky folky edge. This is the more difficult yin to Flying Nun's more pop-based yang. Its desolate, noisy, and completely uncompromising.
This 7" re-issue comes on gold vinyl and is well worth seeking out (or dig out your dusty original if you were lucky enough to get it first time round).
