Shayne Carter and John Collie formed Straitjacket Fits in 1986 after the demise of the Doublehappys and were joined by Andrew Brough and David Wood. The reissue of Hail is deeply tinged with sadness following the recent loss of Andrew Brough; gifted songwriter and guitarist of not only Straitjacket Fits, but also Bike and Dunedin band The Blue Meanies. Andrew’s musical impact is undeniable and it’s unimaginable to think of a world without his contributions to New Zealand music. Straitjacket Fits’ debut release, the Dialling a Prayer EP appeared in 1987 and the album Hail was released in 1988. Both were recorded at The Lab in Auckland with Terry Moore (from The Chills). This reissued version of Hail is a combination of both those records as it was originally released in the UK by Rough Trade.
