The Chills – Brave Words
Flying Nun, 1987
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2008
I’m pretty sure this is technically the Chills first full-length if I don’t include their magnificent singles compilation Kaleidoscope World, which I would immediately recommend anyone looking to get into the Chills, Flying Nun Records, or just good goddamned late-80s indie-pop. I remember I was buying this with the self-titled Kid Dynamite record and Kelly seemed surprised and said something along the lines of “I guess you’re just a Kid Dynamite dude living in a Chills world” which I thought was funny.
