A compilation from Flying Nun originals,The Stones -Three Blind Mice includes the bands' contribution to the legendary Dunedin Double,Another Disc Another Dollar EP as well as never heard before live recordings.
Curated by New Zealand/Noise legend Bruce Russell (The Dead C, Xpressway Records), with liner notes by Shayne Carter (Straitjacket Fits, Bored Games), design + illustrations from Alec Bathgate + Chris Knox and mastered by Tex Houston (The Clean, 3Ds).
The Stones were birthed by singer/guitarist Wayne Elseys decision to quit Bored Games to start a band that sounded like The Clean. Their debut came on the 25th April 1981 at an Otago University, a gig headlined by Bored Games (Shayne Carter) and new comers The Chills and Verlaines (a line up which in retrospect, would make any Flying Nun/low fi pop fan drool). Elseys vision for a band that sounds like The Clean didnt really come to fruition. The Stones were toobright to not to create their own sound,one wrapped in braggadocio and swagger. Fast, aggressive guitars, driving rhythm section with a knack for fluid pop structures. Charismatic and smart,The Stones had the ability to sound completely empathetic and threatening all at once. - Shayne P. Carter
"The Stones were a Dunedin band: 1981-83. During the cultural highpoint of southern New Zealand music these three Romans with a 1970s Falcon station-wagon floated it with the best..." - Bruce Russell.
