By Gregory AdamsFollowing news earlier this year that Captured Tracks†would be reissuing a number of Flying Nun releases, the New York label has revealed plans to repress some out-of-print material from English post-punk group Bona Dish.
The band's two early '80s cassette releases will be compiled on CD and LP for the first time as The Zaragoza Tapes: 1981-1982, which will be released March 19. All together, the collection features 14 newly mastered tunes.
A press release notes that the band's two boys/two girls lineup was inspired by everything from the Velvet Underground to the Supremes, while standing head-to-head with post-punk peers of the time like Television Personalities, the Homosexuals and Marine Girls. The group's sound is also described as "sexual and musically fragile."
