The Poisoners were an Auckland Ska Punk/Reggae band that was on Puppy Killer Records alongside Missing Teeth etc. They had a good following around early 2000s/mid 2000s. They had members from Missing Teeth, The Rudies, The Managers etc. They broke up around 2007/08??
Hivemind were a Auckland Hardcore band that played for a few years and produced two sweet as demos. They have since broken up as the members have gone on to other projects etc (Graves, Kia Kaha Kids etc).
Hatewanx were a Thrash/Cross over Thrash/ Punk band from Christchurch that were around from about 2008-2010. After releaseing the solid album 'When Animals Attack' they managed to pull off a sweet as New Zealand tour playing all the main cities. Eventually they called it quits, and went on to form other musical projects etc
The Wrongmen were a hardcore band from Auckland, featuring members of Evil Priest. They played very chaotic, energetic hardcore, and members have since gone on to form other bands such as Oil Barrons. This album was/is one of my favorite NZ releases. They released two other records I intend to upload later.

Theres a lot thats been said about Missing Teeth, but I can't really be bothered rehashing it all. These guys were one of the best punk acts to come out of Auckland, they fucking clocked it. I still play this album all the time, they were fucking great. I'm trying to find a copy of the Disaster EP to upload later. Anyways, if you haven't heard this, download it now.
