Open Letter To Flying Out Customers

Open Letter To Flying Out Customers


After a summer spent #neknominating, traversing mountain ranges and sorting our wardrobe for the summer festival season, the Flying Out team are back in business, providing you with the one stop shop for all your non-top 40 musical treats. While we catalogue our stock and package your orders, Kenneth is brewing up some exciting ideas for the coming months!

Read on to find out about our new vouchers, the re-issue of Peter Gutteridge's 'Pure', Muzai's roundup of 2013 and more!
Flying Out Voucher
GIFT VOUCHERS
While we can stock the best and brightest of new talent and older classics, we can't mind read what your fussy loved one wants, so we have jacked up a voucher system. Cleanse yourself of the stress of choosing the perfect gift, and get them (or yourself) a Flying Out Voucher and let them do the choosin'. Gift cards come in denominations of $10, $25, $50 + $100, and can be found here.

PETER GUTTERIDGE - PURE
Recorded on a Fostex 4-track between 1986 + '87, Peter Gutteridge's - Pure was the Dunedin musicians' only solo LP. Originally released on Xpressway in 1989, its now gone through the reissue treatment thanks to 540 Records. Combining 20 tracks filled with abstract instrumentals, droning synths and fuzz, this double LP can be seen as a blue print for the racket that Gutteridge has become known for with the likes of Snapper and The Great Unwashed. Grab a copy from Flying Out, and as the liner notes say; "Good Luck and Enjoy".

THE CLEAN - NEW ZEALAND DATES
New Zealand's holy trinity, The Clean, have returned to our shores, picked up their instruments are are darting around the country performing songs from their thirty-odd year back catalogue. Sample their wares over at Flying Out and book a car to follow them as they perform twice at Dunedin's Chicks Hotel on the 31 Jan/1st Feb and Wellington's Puppies on the 10/2. Tickets are available from UnderTheRadar.co.nz.

Be walked through the aural delicacies by label founder Benjii Jackson who will illuminate your opinions and introduce you to your new favourites. While 2014 will see Muzai Records go through a relocation they will not stop releasing the finest alternative sounds around, including their first new release for 2014 - Astro Childrens' debut album Proteus.

SURF FRIENDS - 1AM
Over the Christmas break most of us ate so much that we needed a lie down, Surf Friends doned the latest Santa Cruz t-shirts and appeared in one of Australasia's leading online fashion magazines. Tucked away near the end of the 'Summer Lovin'' issue of 1AM, the band delve into the process of creating their records, show off their hot bods and contemplate whether or not Nick Roughan is a god.
