Three Blind Mice


The Stones were often seen as a kind of runts of the litter among many of the early Flying Nun bands, especially since unlike their fellow acts on the legendary Dunedin Double compilation they only managed one further EP before splitting. But the 2015 collection Three Blind Mice, drawing together both the EP and compilation tracks as well as including a slew of further live tracks, helps make the case for them well, showcasing the kind of scratchy guitar chug, affably off-center vocals and slightly unpolished sound that helped define scene and label then.
