Bona Dish were a scratchy pop punk group from Hertfordshire villages, brought together by their love of the Velvets, Supremes and each other. They were cool, handsome and gorgeous. The songs are simple, but at the same time complex. The dichotomy of a two female, two male line-up added a tension that was both sexual and musically fragile. You feel it might all fall apart any second, but it rarely does. 

After their “cassette in a tube” ploy worked for a John Peel play, the band released a cassette on In Phaze and disbanded not long after. Here, Bona Dish are a rediscovered gem with The Zaragoza Tapes, showcasing the zest and spontaneity that gripped the UK DIY scene of the time; their music easily stands the test of time against contemporaries like Television Personalities, The Homosexuals and Marine Girls.

This release marks the first vinyl and CD release for Bona Dish, their complete recorded output compiled and remastered.
