Obscuro Flying Nun group The Max Block released a sole twelve-inch in the mid-'80s before members Maryrose and Brian Crook moved on to The Renderers. Before hanging up the towel on The Max Block project, however, they recorded another EP that never saw the light of day. In 2012, the Siltbreeze label announced plans to release the group's full discography.
The release is called 'Air Ache in the Belly of the Leech' and includes The Max Block's self-titled debut and their unreleased tracks. As Siltbreeze explains, "The Max Block pushed different boundaries than other active Christchurch bands at the time; they came out slinging a brain-splattering goo of art-spaced, Pere-Ubu-seared cerebellum, and frenetic, Mars-fried medula oblongata."
