The Great Unwashed

An offshoot of legendary Flying Nun band The Clean, The Great Unwashed released two psychedelic-pop albums in the early 1980s. The first — Clean Out of Our Minds — was recorded in Christchurch by brothers Hamish and David Kilgour in 1983, while they were giving The Clean a rest. By their second recording, the brothers had been joined by Peter Gutteridge (Snapper), who gave the band a harder sound. The Great Unwashed are seen as an important part of Flying Nun's heritage, linking from The Clean to the music all three members would go on to make.
