Rip Shit or Bust

Above pic: Not the album cover.

Here's Ripper Records final output from the year of 1983. Six New Zealands bands from two islands. Personal favourites are the Terrorways celebration of short haired rock and roll. Spelling Mistakes ode to Reena's non-facial lips title alone ensured it was never going to get commercial radio play. The shock value has worn off for me but the country tinged song still has the same naughty schoolboy appeal years after first hearing it.

Rip into it!
