Tall Dwarfs Three Songs EP cover imageIn the history of Flying Nun releases, the importance of Chris Knox's TEAC 4-track recorder cannot be understated. The very first record recorded on the machine was Chris Knox and Alec Bathgate's first post-Toy Love project, Three Songs by Tall Dwarfs.

Initially released on the short-lived Furtive label in 1981, by the time Flying Nun re-released Three Songs four years later Knox's 4-track had captured some of this nation's finest classics.

The story of Tall Dwarfs Three Songs is told by Alec Bathgate, Doug Hood, Hamish Kilgour, Simon Grigg, and Paul Rose.
