I fucking love New Zealand punk. Sure, that’s a bit of a broad generalization, but for such a small country, a lot of killer bands have come from there. Hell, if all the punk that ever came from New Zealand was the AK-79 comp, that country would still be leagues ahead of plenty of other country. It’s a bonafide killer classic. Here’s a brief taste of what’s going on down there today, care of Carlos Patino. Thanks Carlos!
