v/a- AK79 2LP
Quite simply one of the greatest compilations EVER.
December 2019 marks the 40 year anniversary of an important record in our lives, AK79. Within the grooves of this historical landmark compilation lies a connection to our musical whakapapa as New Zealanders and music lovers. A defining record, having captured a raw snapshot of the punk subculture in Auckland during the late 70s, this much-loved compilation is a living, breathing statement of what came before today.
To mark this very special occasion, Flying Nun Records pays tribute to those ragged and rambunctious years by presenting AK79 40th Anniversary Edition Reissue, featuring new liner notes written by Ripper Records' Bryan Sta, the 2019 reissue will feature all songs ever featured on any version of AK79 for a complete look at its recorded history.
