Hellzapoppin'! : The Art of Flying Nun

ISBN: 9781877375705

Author: Peter Vangioni    Publisher: Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu

Published to mark the fortieth anniversary of the founding of Flying Nun Records in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Hellzapoppin’! brings together original artwork and design, film, record covers, posters and photography from the label’s early years. From rare collectible records and vintage posters to original artworks and paste-up designs, this book explores the art and artists behind some of New Zealand’s favourite bands. Entertaining essays from Peter Vangioni, Kath Webster, Russell Brown and Flying Nun founder Roger Shepherd will be interspersed with brief interview-style contributions from some of the people responsible for creating the art of the label. Heavily illustrated, it will feature original artwork for the records and posters, photography from the archives, and rarely seen vinyl releases and posters. The Flying Nun aesthetic was foundational to a generation of impressionable young creators and agitators. By talking to the people responsible, this book will burst a few enduring myths, and maybe start some new ones.
