...Flying Nun Records - Dunedin Double EP...

The Dunedin Double EP was released by Flying Nun Records in 1982. It consists of two 12" 45 rpm discs in a double gatefold with one side dedicated to each of The Chills, The Verlaines, The Stones and Sneaky Feelings. It marks a distinct change in focus for the label towards the emerging Dunedin scene and the so called, much debated, "Dunedin Sound".

The Chills, The Verlaines and Sneaky Feelings would all go on to greater things, The Stones however only produced one further EP before disbanding.
