It wasn't a mainstream monster hit, nor did it dominate sales charts, but it was a seminal album for the band that created it. Last Exit to Garageland garnered much critical acclaim and exposed Garageland to audiences in the UK and US.

It also made a big splash on student radio, with five fresh pop songs getting regular airplay. Eventually, the 1996 album made it into the top five on the nation's album chart.

Garageland's lead singer, principal songwriter and guitarist Jeremy Eade joins Jesse in the Auckland Studio.
