give them ticks please. i saw the 3ds many times but not the terminals hence they seem kind of holy and mysterious. nothing like the live experience to thump you back to earth.
although the live 3ds experience did nothing to detract one iota from the records.wowee.

and touch would be my favorite NZ lp ever, for what it's worth. and it and the follow up little things both came out on raffmond, i think.

it can be sometimes disorienteering to take too much alchohol.

Much as I like those two bands, I prefer records by the Great Unwashed, Snapper, Renderers, Clean, Dead C, Gordons, Chills, Tall Dwarfs and Alpaca Bros. (never had a long player but still...) but that just goes to show how crazy-good NZ music is/ was.
Super jealous you saw the 3Ds a bunch, fuck. Is David Mitchell's solo project Ghost Something-or-other any good?

but it really was a maelstorm and my ears were ringing for days afterwards. i saw them play maybe 7-8 times and for a long period there they were incredible each and every time. i thought i wouldnt want to be watching any other band anywhere. then they put out that last recored 'sad news for the angels' and it was clear the fire had gone. what a sad way to end. but i reckon that for a period of a about3-4 years there from before hellzappopin probably up to about a year after the venus trail there wasnt a better band on the planet. or in the world.
or even the entire universe.
or the solar system.of the galaxy.
in my underpants?

They're chatting about a possible compilation (to include rarities, etc.) over at the 3ds' myspace page. I'd kind of forgotten about them, and pulled out Venus Trail and damn it's still an incredible album.
I started thinking of doing a poll for best song, and then decided not to because I don't think enough people know it well enough to be interested, but if there was ever a record where I'd have a hard time picking a favorite track...

beautiful things would be the track for me, but i can't resist a pop tune like that
― thereminimum chips (electricsound), Monday, 1 December 2008 03:13 (4 years ago) Permalink
God, I hope they release some the rarities they talk about on that myspace page. Anyone ever heard their peel session?
As for best song on "The Venus Trail," that a tough one because, even though I think it was once my favorite album, I actually haven't listed to it in years. Though looking at a tracklisting now, it does seem that beautiful things is probably the best. Or maybe the title track.

is track two called Philledelphia Rising that song crushes me when its played far too loud- especially the outro. What a monolithic slab of gloriousness. seems like talk of a reunion was premature, which is sad. even if reunions destroy the myth, its a risk i would be willing to take in a heartbeat. Come back 3ds!!

Just rebought a lost copy...it's a little softer, but my pick is probably "Young and the Restless." So pretty. What a band. Spooky is also more amazing than I remembered it.

Dug out The Venus Trail today and it has aged really well! Syrupy pop + guitar squalls + melodies -- good stuff. 3Ds were great, but Hellzapoppin is among the worst album titles though. Up there with Rastakraut Pasta for "this is embarrassing to say out loud"
Anyway, here's to the 3Ds.

Flying Nun just released a comp of early demos and singles, I believe.

Yep - We Bury The Living
I was always slightly perplexed by this thread and the comparison made, as the 3Ds were genuinely popular in NZ - supported U2, "Hey Seuss" had the longest continuous run at #1 on student radio in history (I think), etc etc etc. Nothing against the Terminals, mind!

Brian Crook's first solo album Bathysphere has been issued on vinyl by Meds:
It's a really cool, weird album, with some Terminals-esque garage rock, noisy/free-form stuff and quieter, dark tunes.
