“A brilliant evening with one of New Zealand’s perhaps most under-rated greatest bands. Am I talking about the Fits, or Dimmer? Doesn’t matter really. They were. They are.”
13th Floor, February 2018

Hailed in their day as “the greatest guitar band in the world” by English rock weekly Melody Maker, Straitjacket Fits cut a swathe through the late 80’s / 90s International alternative rock scene. Emanating from Dunedin and at the forefront of their label Flying Nun’s impeccable international reputation, the Fits’ combination of blistering guitars and potent, haunting melodies earned them a reputation as one of the most powerful live acts on earth with journalists around the globe regularly tripping over themselves to find superlatives to describe the band’s scorching live shows.
