    Semi-mythical perpetrators of the first-ever Flying Nun record, the Pin Group were the archetypal ‘band with a plan’. This, combined with one of the lowest profiles in popular music, naturally makes them one of the hottest posthumous properties around. Two singles and one 12” EP, live shows only in Christchurch between May 1981 and January 1982, a reunion single in 1993; and that’s all folks.
    Now, all this has been bought together for a complete re-issue. 'Ambivalence' sees all the Christchurch act’s material fully re-mastered by band member Roy Montgomery and engineer Arnold van Bussell. Compiled by Bruce Russell, the reissue features the original version of their second single ‘Coat’, plus the 12” LP includes a bonus download of live tracks. All repackaged with reproductions of the original artwork by contemporary artist and Pin Group associate Ronnie van Hout.
    Each digital copy includes eight bonus live tracks from the Pin Group's 1981 show at the Gladstone, Christchurch:
    1. Jim
    2. Ambivalence
    3. Power
    4. Assassin
    5. Blood of Christ
    6. Columbia
    7. Coat
    8. Hurricane Fighter Plane
    Plus the cover images of the Live CD and 12" LP - both reproductions of original Ronnie van Hout artwork.,
