The Pin Group


In existence for barely a year and a half in the early 80s, Christchurch, New Zealand’s Pin Group released three singles and EPs during its time, a fourth archival one a decade later, and then this handy collection putting them all together. Given the group’s wide-ranging legacy, with members working in such acts as the Terminals, Dadamah and many solo efforts, especially Roy Montgomery’s career, it’s a treat to hear both the group’s originals, very much showing a Joy Division influence, and a couple of covers too, including of all things War’s “Low Rider.”
