Stephen - Radar Of Small Dogs LP
Label: Yellow Electric
"Late 1980s to early '90s guitar pop/rock n roll band from Dunedin, New Zealand. Stephen featured David Kilgour, Alf Danielson, Geoff Hoani, and Stephen Kilroy. Formed by David Kilgour after The Clean first split. They released an EP on Flying Nun records in 1988 as a three piece, later added another guitarist and recorded for a record that didn't happen. Remastered, rescued and compiled for this release. New art and liner notes, insert with prev. unseen photos and fliers. Tracks from the Dumb EP, Radar Of Small Dogs, as well as studio tracks from sessions towards the never-completed LP. Interview with David Kilgour about the band coming up in the next Maggot Brain issue.
"Stephen Kilroy recently reminded me that my idea for the band was to have no aspirations, apart from making new music, and that it was a casual experiment. I'd forgotten that. I remember having a long break after the Clean first split. I wanted to keep making music in a low-key way, and with other musicians I could write and share the spotlight with. I've always wanted to be in someone else's band." - David Kilgour
