More Info:

One of Flying Nun’s earliest releases ‘Bored Games’ (1982) was the inception of a 17 year old Shayne Carter who would later go on to be a common thread in Flying Nun bands ‘The Double Happy’s’ and ‘Straight Jacket Fits’. As most things at the age of 17, Bored Games were to be temporary, breaking up before the EP’s release over a year after its recording. What was left behind was teenaged anxst manifested in early punk styling’s that would sit comfortably in 1977’s England along side Buzzcocks and The Adverts. The EP showcases how broad Flying Nun’s sonic net cast when put beside pop darlings The Chills and The Clean. Bored Games is abrasive and fast while still capturing Flying Nun’s unique isolated essence. Re-issued for the first two presses during the 1980’s, remastered complete with insert of previously unseen photo’s at an extremely limited run.
