The Axemen began in Christchurch, NZ in 1981 and stood somewhat aside of the pop path exhibited by much of the the Flying Nun label roster, but are without doubt one of the more fascinating Kiwi exports. Various live shows and releases displayed a loose but virulent amalgamation of avant-garage,
Half Japanese style sax primitivism, confusion, and general air of maladjusted greatness. -Brian Turner/WFMU
