Loves Ugly Children

Abrasive, punky band from Christchurch who for most of their career were a trio comprising Simon McLaren (guitar, vocals), Angela Leslie (aka Floss) (bass, vocals) and Jason Young (drums). Formed in 1989, they recorded EPs for Christchurch labels Failsafe and Flat City before moving to Flying Nun in 1994, where they made two albums. Young was replaced in 1996 by Paul Reid, who would later front Rubicon (and also appear in Shortland Street). After their split in 1998, McLaren formed the Subliminals and then recorded an album as Sleepers Union.
