the band that came to represent the krkrkrk label in the mid 90s, leonard nimoy were a high profile christchurch experimental, but essentially rock outfit comprised of label founder david khan, apoplexy founder and major krkrkrk contributor peter wright, tracey pagey and mikel goodwin. as a successor to tma-1, leonard nimoy were confrontational and aggressive, a cult band from the kind of city (what could be more middle-class and conservatively white than christchurch?) where such bands thrive – though their home-recorded productions we’re never exactly big sellers.
