Exploding Budgies

one of dave mitchell’s earliest bands (while he was still based in auckland, no less), the exploding budgies sounded british, and ignored then evolving jangly sound and vocal approach that had become our trademark (taking on more of a smiths swagger..). They only released an ep (eventually issued on flying nun) before mitchell moved on to form goblin mix. both bands collective material were later compiled on the excellent the complete goblin mix and the exploding budgies – also on flying nun.
