va - Making Losers Happy - Xpressway NZ Singles 1988-91

Badgerstump and I just want you to be happy. This album should do it. These are the songs that kickstarted what we know today as the New Zealand noise/rock underground, featuring nothing but classics by The Dead C. (the entire "Sun Stabbed" EP, in fact), The Terminals, Plagal Grind, Peter and Graeme Jefferies, Alastair Galbraith, David Mitchell, Robbie Muir and Denise Roughan... some would make friendlier (but still wonderful) music for the Flying Nun label, others remain underground heroes to this day.

I think I have some more requests after López's Warszawa Restaurant is posted.
They are the following:

John Cage: Edition 1 - Etudes Boreales & Ryoanji
Francisco López: Untitled #90
Francisco López: Untitled (1998)

One of the greatest compilations ever.
Nuff said.
