Constant Pain are the bastard offspring of legendary Auckland band Supercar.
‘Trail of Destruction’ is a wailing Snapper‘ish rock epic recorded live during one of their many anarchic live shows.

Cameron Bain passed away in 2014 and Rod McLellan (aka Roddy Pain) followed him in 2016.
Constant Pain was Roddy Pain and Cameron Bain, an Auckland-based act by then. ‘Million Miles’ was a glorious psychedelic shiver that prompted the same spaced awe as The Thirteenth Floor Elevators’ second album version of Dylan’s ‘(It’s All Over Now) Baby Blue’. The flipside ‘Trail Of Destruction’ rattled along on a trashcan ‘Sister Ray’ riff with Nicholas Clarke drumming.AudioCulture entry on Crawlspace Records
