Pull down the shades

Been away, almost back, but in the mean­time, this is a gig­gle, from the usu­al­ly unre­li­able All Music Guide (most of their NZ band bios are quite clear­ly writ­ten by hacks who have nev­er heard the bands in ques­tion) comes this shock­er:

Ene­my was an obscure punk out­fit that hailed from New Zealand. Formed in the late ‘70s, the group is best known in their home­land for such sin­gles as “Punks Alive” and “Fall­en Hero.” The band’s full-length debut album, Gate­way to Hell, was issued in 1983, and although it became increas­ing­ly hard to find over the years, was reis­sued on CD, con­tain­ing ten bonus tracks (many of which were rare sin­gles). The ‘90s also saw the release of a pair of con­cert albums record­ed back in May of 1978 — Pull Down the Shades and Iggy Told Me. ~ Greg Pra­to, All Music Guide

Ahhh, ok.…

Per­haps Mr Pra­to would should’ve done a lit­tle research before send­ing in his biog­ra­phy and invoice:

For the real bio lis­ten to Iggy Told me, but what you need to know is that they emerged out of Dunedin in 1977 then took Auck­land by storm, broke up and mutat­ed into Toy Love, which went on to become the dom­i­nant band in New Zealand before mov­ing to Aus­tralia where no one cared and they broke up.
