The debut full-length LP by Straitjacket Fits, 1988's Hail was reissued last Friday by Flying Nun, with the weaker tracks substituted for rippers from the band's 1987 EP, Life In One Chord.

We'll hear two songs from that today, alongside gems from Palmerston North MC Stanley Pedigree and Welsh post-punk pioneers, Young Marble Giants.
