The Orange - Fruit Salad Lives (1985)

Nice tight little Dunedin pop outfit, with Andrew Brough of Straitjacket Fits and Jonathan Moore of Bored Games. Loads of reverb and that chimey jangle you love to love. Much less playful than most of the better known Dunedin Sound bands, though in that regard probably more akin to the Sneaky Feelings than the Verlaines.

I've posted this mostly to make up for the terrible rip that used to be up on kiwitapes -- it's been driving me crazy for a few years, so here is a nice quality rip for yez.

And Are You Going To Fly?


  1. Thanks so much for this! I have the vinyl but no easy way to burn it to a CD. Andrew Brough certainly had a way with a tune. And that voice! Shame he isn't still making music.

  2. The rip you don't like was from my LP. I sent it to the individual behind Kiwi Tapes and I was also dissappointed in what became available when the rip was done. I don't know if the problem was from my copy or the process used.

    There was the Bike record by Brough and nothing since. That was great and I wish he had recorded more as well.

    Thank you for all of your work on this site.
