Above Ground GONE AIWA Vinyl Record

Above Ground GONE AIWA Vinyl Record
Vinyl LP pressing. Above Ground was a fleeting yet no less important piece in the awesome DIY Christchurch, New Zealand scene of the early '80's. Together only for a short period in 1983, the band was comprised of Bill Direen (Vacuum/Bilders), Carol Direen, Maryrose Crook (Max Block/Renderers) and Stuart Page (Axemen). They combined a ubiquitous and detached Velvet Underground vibe and a smattering of early Modern Lovers keyboard angst with some kind of Sky Saxon/Seeds Psychedelic Mojo. Above Ground was a formidable outfit in their brief existence and deserve more than a mere footnote in the history of one of the most vibrant scenes to exist in the past 30 years.
