Brooklyn-based label Captured Tracks is partnering with Flying Nun to reissue the late 70’s New Zealand label’s back catalog which includes bands like the Clean, The Chills, The Tall Dwarfs, The Verlaines, The Bats,
Obviously, Flying Nun has had a huge influence on the majority of Columbus, Ohio’s Siltbreeze bands.
Below is “Swimming Pool” which is off of an upcoming Toy Love Anthology that will be the first release from this partnership on 2/19.
Toy Love (pre-Tall Dwarfs/the Bats) was around from January 1979 to September 1980. The Toy Love Compilation collects all the A & B sides of the three Toy Love singles, plus the best demos from 1979, a live track and even a radio jingle. All mastered for vinyl, straight from the original analogue tapes, no nasty CDs nor digital sources were used at all. While, the back cover features a sketched cartoon of an early Toy Love flyer drawn by Chris Knox.
