In the fertile terrain of New Zealand’s 1980s post-punk
scene, few figures loom as large as the Jefferies brothers.
Graeme Jefferies and Peter Jefferies—the primary forces
behind This Kind Of Punishment—wrote some of the
best music to come out on Flying Nun, Xpressway or
elsewhere. A dizzying mix of pastoral ballads and DIY
experimentation, TKP’s songwriting was at once classic
and acutely raw.
On their self-titled debut, the Jefferies brothers and
Chris Matthews eschew the punk-informed modes of their
contemporaries for a sound that is decidedly more deliberate
/ intimate. Rooted in a marriage between simplistic,
classically-influenced piano, alternating guitar chime and
sparse, subtle violin drone, This Kind Of Punishment is a
contemplative, inventive collection of ideas corralled via
economic 4-track recordings, minimal instrumentation
and an austere performance style entirely of the Jefferies’
own making. Songs like “After The Fact,” “In View Of
The Circumstances” and “Two Minutes Drowning” boast
a living quality whereby the listener can act as bystander
to these moments of creation—a trait that the band would
expand upon throughout the course of their brief tenure.
First-time vinyl reissue since its initial release in 1983.
