the Gordons-1981, Gordon 2, LP



Slight, un apologetic change of pace......
if you' like somewhat harsh jagged ,primitive, minimal ,acerbic, guitar oriented,so called Post Punk... from New Zealand , this is for you !
no Cd reissue , or reissue of any kind since a 1984,Flying Nun Vinyl release
this is from an original self released copy on their own label....
A killer record in the aforementioned genre..forefathers to my ears of later feedback drenched ,more self consciously, arty,NZ bands like Dead-C, and Dora Maar

info below from Discogs- taken from the Sleeve,and insert

Well played sir.

I dont s'pose anyone has the elusive 2nd Gordons album , not the original line up and apparently not as good, but surely still worth a listen.
Anyone?

Just to clarify, this is Gordons S/T, which in fact was reissued on cd with the earlier ep, Future Shock," added.

Awesome stuff, and these three guys formed the mighty Bailter Space afterward.

Gordons 2 lp was without Alister Parker, and is kinda shitty.

Growing up in Christchurch, NZ I saw these guys live many a time. Had this along with the Future Shock ep and Vol. 2, but sadly long gone. Some of the songs on Vol 2 just didn't have the same "intensity" they did live e.g. Quality Control. They were still a great band to see... in all their brutal glory - they were loud!!
