The Chills

May 10, 1990

One of the leading lights of New Zealand’s “Dunedin sound,” Martin Phillipps and The Chills landed on SNAP in May 1990.

The band’s 11th incarnation stopped by to promote their album “Submarine Bells.” Their set includes a heavy dose of that record and a generous selection of earlier classics.
