The Chills reissue their celebrated early singles compilation, this 24-track expanded version of Kaleidoscope World gathers together tracks from the 'Dunedin Double' compilation, live recordings, Doledrums' single and the band's seminal 'Pink Frost'.

The collection also contains 'The Lost EP', with early takes on their groundbreaking 'Submarine Bells' album, alongside the aching 'I Love My Leather Jacket', perfectly illustrating the rollercoaster ride of Martin Phillipps and The Chills as portrayed in the award film The Triumph And The Tragedy Of Martin Phillipps.

"Singer/guitarist Martin Phillipps' group was at the forefront of the extraordinary little guitar-pop scene in New Zealand in the early '80s..

Kaleidoscope World is the major document of their early era." Pitchfork. Part of the 80's extraordinarily vibrant and innovative independent music scene in New Zealand, The Chills became flag bearers, taking the Dunedin sound, as championed by the Flying Nun label, to the world.

Long recognised as one of New Zealand's most influential bands, Kaleidoscope World is a definitive artifact from Martin Phillipps' groundbreaking project.

Kaleidoscope World is not just the starting point for The Chills, but an insight into the world of New Zealand guitar-pop and the Dunedin Sound an influence which carries on to indie-pop bands around the world today.

Originally released in 1986, the compilation captures the best of the magical early period recordings of The Chills and simply oozes excitement and possibility.

2XLP/CD featuring bonus tracks, b-sides, demos and live tracks "An architect of New Zealand's fabled Dunedin sound" Pitchfork
