Sticky Filth Profile

8 May 2015

New Zealand’s provincial punk groups earned respect the hard way. Playing where and when they could. Standing their ground against competing sub-cultures and the police. Raking up the bucks for trips out of town to record and play. Getting the records out. The further from the main centres they were, the harder it was.

Just ask New Plymouth trio Sticky Filth, who’ve been putting punk rock before New Zealand eyes and ears for 30 years now. They have toured Australia twice, played more New Zealand shows than they can remember and released the country’s finest catalogue of metallic punk.

The 1994 Def Through Misadventure EP was released on Brian Wafer's Ima Hitt label. Recorded in 1990, it was pressed on purple vinyl and only 200 were made, thus making it instantly internationally collectable.
