Navigation for Flying Nun Records

Sixteen years after thinking it would be good to document the music of some of the bands in his home town, Flying Nun founder Roger Shepherd leaves the company.

It's a time of rebuilding, many of the long-time acts have called it a day, and popular music and the music business have changed almost beyond recognition. Association with an ever-expanding international music company impacts on Flying Nun, but as the label celebrates it's 21st year, international success again looks possible for some Flying Nun acts.

Spooky , The 3Ds, Music Video, 1993
