Nocturnal Projections - Inmates In Images LP
Shipping calculated at checkout.
Largely ignored during their tenure (but revered and referenced in the years after their breakup) and often compared to UK contemporaries like Joy Division, Comsat Angels or Wire, Nocturnal Projections stood well apart - never enjoying the luxuries of unlimited studio time, music videos or international fame. “Inmates In Images” pulls the best selections from live board recordings between 1981 and 1983, including the never-before-released tracks: “Blank Faces” and “Late Night”, along with unheard versions of previously released songs - and includes Peter and Graeme’s song “Walk In A Straight Line”, written in October of 1980 and originally intended for their earlier band The Plastic Bags.Nocturnal Projections are hard to pin down: bright, slashing, and prominent guitars with driving, solid basslines and drums in tight lockstep, all with Peter Jefferies’ urgent signature baritone vocals soaring alongside – the result is still perhaps the most energetic, unique, and fresh music to ever emerge from the post-punk scene. This collection is must-have for new listeners and existing Nocturnal Projections fans, preserving the legacy of New Zealand’s groundbreaking legends.
