    Now that it's sufficiently obsolete, MIC have decided to revive this antiquated music format, in the most proper way possible: buy this 20 track, NZ-Pressed CD and receive a 12-page booklet with extensive liner notes including bios and photos of each band, a map of Christchurch musical places, a network map of Christchurch band members featured on the compilation, extensive credits and a foreword lovingly written by Hannah Herchenbach. This is intended to be a document and keepsake of the 2018 Christchurch indie music scene.

about

What’s more quintessentially Christchurch than a burnt-out Subaru Legacy in front of an earthquake damaged cathedral? Perhaps this. Melted Ice Cream present to you a compilation and document of the Christchurch live music scene of 2018, comprising 100% unheard Ōtautahi hits: Sickest Smashes From Arson City: Legacy Edition. This is the first outing for a number of artists from Christchurch including: Avon Dads, Ben Woods, Cowboy Machine, Dogfish, Pavlov's Puss, PGX, The Hex Waves, and The Waltham Home Organ Society... but also features previously-unheard tracks from established hitmakers Best Bets, Dark Matter, Nervous Jerk, Salad Boys, and Wurld Series. Plus many more unheard tracks from local artists. Christchurch's indie scene has traditionally been regarded as one of the best in New Zealand, let alone the world, and this compilation serves to prove it.

The CD version includes extensive liner notes and bios of bands, a map of Christchurch musical places, diagram of the interrelation of Christchurch bands, as well as bios for each band and a foreword by Hannah Herchenbach, who is writing a thesis on South Island rock music.

***for an alternative listening experience, start at side B! (a.k.a. track 13).
