The Tin Syndrome was one of the truly original New Zealand groups of the early 1980s; popular in its home town of Wellington, where, along with a small handful of other groups of the time, it had a defining influence on the evolution of the capital’s sound.
Distinct from Dunedin, Auckland or Christchurch, Wellington developed the
more experimental, avant-garde scene it still has today; and from a rock perspective The Tin Syndrome was an early leader in that movement.
The group utilized the high energy of the punk/new wave aesthetic as a
vehicle for intense songs with busy arrangements and a “more is more” ethos, attracting a dedicated following, including many musicians among its number.
