Hash Jar Tempo Quotes
The main reason for the break was a combination of travel and going back to university, which drew me into theatre more than music. I did stuff on acoustic guitar when I was traveling, filed it away and made notes, without it being musical notation. Just taped the odd thing, did a sketch, stuck it on a cassette. I thought at some point, I'll go back to it. Some of it I did use in '84-'85 when I started working in the Free Theatre in Christchurch. So it might seem like I had given up after the Pin Group, but I just went into a different avenue.
In essence, it was an attempt to do something a little bit different in Christchurch in the early 80s. We got saddled with a "Joy Division" tag which I think, if you listen to the first single, is probably justified, but from there on out I don't think it is, it's a very superficial listening comparison. We quit just when we were starting to sound like a reasonably decent band (laughs). What surprises me most is that anybody in the U.S. even knows about that, because it was pretty small beer even by New Zealand standards.
