This Kind Of Punishment ‎– "This Kind Of Punishment" (Flying Nun Records ‎– TKP 001) 1983

A more minimal version of TKP existed for the eponymous debut, consisting of the Jefferies brothers only, plus the occasional guest.
Largely drumless experimental ditties,drawn mostly from the 'down' section of the bi-polar depression cycle, with a nod towards modern folk. Less accesable than future releases, but its indeed a grower.


A1 After The Fact 4:43
A2 Instrumental 3:33
A3 Don't Take Those 3:38
A4 In View Of The Circumstances 5:02
B1 Two Minutes Drowning 3:51
B2 If An Axe Is An Arm 4:41
B3 Just Another Funeral
B4 Some More Than Others 3:13
B5 Ahead Of Their Time 4:24

thanks, wonderful stuff! I am puzzled: why did TKP escape my attention so far? In the second half of the 1980s it was pretty much impossible not to be aware of new music from NZ, esp. the poppier side of Flying Nun, even in Germany; a bit later, being alive meant sooner or later somebody would mention Dead C, Gate, A Handful of Dust, or the various solo projects of the respective members. But no TKP, no Jefferies brothers, as far as I can remember, odd!

I am listening to all the Peter Jefferies I can find on YT right now, astonishingly great!!!!
