Various - Le Jazz Non (A compilation Of Nineties NZ Noise)

This is an amazing compilation of New Zealand experimental music complied by Bruce Russell of The Dead C. I remember being really surprised at how delicate and fragile the noise from this country came across, I expected it to be like the more full-on approach of noise bands from the US and Japan. This compilations introduced me to bands like Surface Of The Earth, Rain, Gate, Omit and A Handful Of Dust. To me, this is true modern folk music.

Good list - though horrified by description of Cardiacs as "ugly people"! Seeing this, it's not remotely surprising that I connected instantly with Tucker's own music.
