The Salad Boys come by their Flying Nun sound honestly, hailing as they do from the label's birthplace of Christchurch, New Zealand. The second album, and first for Trouble in Mind, Metalmania has the jangle, the low-key songwriting, the off-handed vocal style, and the melodic skill of great Nun bands like the Chills, the Bats, and the Clean down pat. It's almost certainly second nature to a band raised on that music.

Metalmania is a strong album, definitely full of promise and quite a few songs that wouldn't sound out of place on a playlist with classic Flying Nun tracks. The Salad Boys are another fine example of the oddball brilliance that naturally flows out of New Zealand like a never-ending stream.
