More new wave than new romantic, NIGEL RUSSELL’s mournful lyrics and voice evoking Joy Division’s Ian Curtis and New Order’s Bernard Sumner.

Formed after the demise of DANSE MACABRE, No Accident was a mild triumph that has become a much-sought-after classic. Lushly housed in a piece of whimsical modern art by Roger Guise, its eight songs represent 80s electronica filtered through the discerning eyes and ears of three funky white guys and bass player Ryan Monga, from South Auckland R&B outfit Ardijah. Produced by Reekie and the “play it loud crew”, engineered by frequent collaborator Tim Field and recorded at Mandrill Studios.
