Bird Nest Roys

little and big ross, deberly roy, warro wakefield, peter moerenhout, dominic stones – 1985-7. another in the long line of jangly pop outfits that opitimized the dunedin sound (though they originated from auckland), they never quite hit the big time, though both the ep and their self-titled lp are well worth tracking down. a little bit quirkier than their contemporaries, they eventually split up soon after the debut full-length (which is now quite hard to find), dominic stones went on to find success as the drummer for the brilliant 3Ds.
