The first EP from Peter Gutterdige (The Clean, Chills and Great Unwashed) lead Dunedin band Snapper to re-issue their eponymous album for Record Store Day 2013. Originally it was released on Flying Nun Records in 1988, in such a limited quality that a press fetches $40-50. Snapper became known for their live shows which were diverse and osculating as their lineup. Snapper EP captures one of the earliest forms in all their space-freak-out glory.

The Bats' first release, By Night, marked one of the earlier releases for Flying Nun in 1984. Formed on New Years Eve in 1982 by Bob Scott (The Clean), Paul Keane (Toy Love), Kaye Woodward and Malcolm Grant, The Bats became one of Flying Nun's strong holds with a catalog and influence spanning over thirty years. By Night establishes The Bats' driven jangle sound that would find both a mainstream audience and continues to influence bands today. As all early Flying Nun releases, By Night's original pressing was limited and as a result, copies today are scarce with a $50 price tag to reflect it. It is now being re-issued for Record Store Day as an exact facsimile of the original.
