||Newmatics: Riot Squad
Auckland based Newmatics were active in the early eighties and split up in 1982 with only a few 45's to their name.
Riot Squad(now out of print) consists of 17 songs along with radio clips, including an interview with Elvis Costello.
The Newmatics only had a short life but this album takes all their singles, some demos and live recordings and shows how good they really were. Although remembered mostly for Riot Squad this album includes their better known singles such as 'Judas', 'Broadcast O.R.', 'Square One' and 'Doobie Doo Boy'.
