Noisy New Zealand guitar pop band Straitjacket Suits was led by singer/guitarist Shayne Carter and curved away by his previous Doublehappys mate John Collie about drums and bassist David Real wood; another guitarist, Andrew Brough, authorized on soon after the group’s 1986 formation. The 1987 EP Existence in a single Chord was Straitjacket Suits’ debut, rating a minor strike with the beautiful “She Rates of speed”; they resurfaced a yr later using the LP Hail, which received nearly universal acclaim. A global tour followed prior to the quartet came back to the studio room to record 1990’s Melt, highlighted from the strike single “Poor Note for any Center.” After a grueling tour, Brough stop to create the group Bicycle and was changed by guitarist Tag Peterson. Without Brough’s even more melodic efforts, Straitjacket Fits used a far more uncooked sound than previously, first evidenced from the 1992 EP Done; the 1993 LP Blow continuing in an identical vein, but after touring America using the Bats as well as the JPS Encounter, the music group amicably dissolved. Carter ultimately resurfaced in Dimmer.
