It makes sense that Iceland's Sin Fang Bous would pop up on a compilation dedicated to the spirit of the late-'70s/early-'80s New Zealand DIY scene, considering they're from a somewhat equally musically isolated place and tend to shape their songs with the same lo-fi rattle that much of the NZ scene used out of necessity. Even the lyrics tow the same line: we can make something happen for ourselves.... That's right Sin Fang Bous, you can, but burying this gem on a massive two disc compilation might not be the best way. Whatever though, that's irrelevant now. Here's the song, jam it, nestle it between some songs by The Clean on a mix cd (do people still make those?) of warm and scratchy music, and enjoy the rest of the wordy Not Given Lightly: A Tribute To The Giant Golden Book Of New Zealand's Alternative Music Scene two-disc compilation (also featuring our current favorite NZ band Surf City) when it drops May 26th on Morr Music.
