about

The third Distractions album, "Kindly Leave The Stage", will be released less than 5 years after the critically-acclaimed "The End of the Pier". That second album took over 30 years to appear following their 1980 Island Records debut "Nobody’s Perfect", which came out a year after their Factory Records single "Time Goes By So Slow" in 1979.

Time no longer goes by so slow for founding members guitarist and songwriter Steve Perrin and vocalist Mike Finney. “The classic narrative structure is beginning-middle-end so three seemed like the right number,” says Steve. “Also I thought it was important to formally say 'goodbye', both to the fans and to each other.” Mike adds, “I think that there was a lot of unfinished business after the first album, and I feel lucky that we got the chance to complete it properly.” The Distractions, not so much a great lost band as a great found band, are taking a final bow.

Fishrider Records is proud to co-release this album with our UK partners Occultation Recordings. Distractions songwriter Steve Perrin now lives in New Zealand and the drummer on this album is The Puddle's Ian Henderson, so it has a strong local NZ and Dunedin connection.
