Alpaca Brothers - Legless EP (1986)

A fine, underrated band from the peak of Flying Nun's influence, the Alpaca Brothers stirred up a nice racket on their 1986 Legless EP. The band featured Steve Courname, who went on to drum for the Verlaines, and Norma O'Malley of Look Blue Go Purple. - Ariel

I paid about $50 for a copy of this about a year ago, the vinyl was in great condition but the cover badly ripped, that aside I still stand by it as a worthy purchase!

well the band that recorded Legless were Bruce Blucher,Nick Wilkonson and Steve Cournane and I have about
30 m9nutes of vhs footage of them supporting the chills at the windsor
in mid 85 dont know if they had any other live recordings but this is no way better than the record

I bought this for $5 in Ann Arbor, MI about 22 years ago. It sill is haunting.

I own the vinyl and was really itching to listen to it, but my turntable sounds like rice crispies and sizzling bacon, so thanks for this. Great record.

I was thinking of a way to digitalize my kiwi-vinyl. So I'm extremely happy to find Doledrums. Thx! Hope there's much more to come...

Hey there
Looks like you might be winding this blog up, but just in case you're still out there scouting ... I thought I'd check to see if you had heard of NZ On Screen.
We have 172 NZ Music videos online (and the list is growing) including quite few Flying Nun ones, a Chris Knox collection, as well as the Flying Nun documentary.
Take a look:
If you get posting again, you might find some gems in there :)

In addition, the company must be able to compose my simple for me at an cost-effective cost. Most companies charge high prices and this helps make it trouble for the college students to get essays. The custom made writing company must set the right price to make sure the pupils are capable to get essays from the procustomwriting company. The organization should ensure all the transactions in the company are open up. Most companies do not make certain the transactions are open up and this prospects to exploitation. This sort of companies are not in a position to compose my essay for me. So, the company ought to steer clear of destructive deals so as to be in a position to compose my essay.
