This Kind Of Punishment were a band from New Zealand.

The band was formed by brothers Peter Jefferies and Graeme Jefferies, after the breakup of their post-punk outfit Nocturnal Projections. Their first self-titled album was recorded on 4-track recorder borrowed from Chris Knox, and released in an edition of 1000 on the Flying Nun label in 1983. It was reissued on the Roof Bolt label in 1998.

Their second album, A Beard Of Bees, was recorded with an extended line-up, and self-released on vinyl in 1984. It was reissued on cassette by the Xpressway label in 1990, and again on CD by the Ajax label in the mid ’90s.

In The Same Room, their third album, was released in 1987 by Flying Nun. It was reissued in 1993 by Ajax Records, and contained the tracks from their 5 By Four EP (see In The Same Room + 5 By Four).

    I finally got them all... the ajax reissues of beard of bees and in the same room/5 by four aren't that hard to find (ebay/discogs/amazon). they do fetch a pretty penny though. The s/t album put out by roof bolt is the hard one to find. If you want them on vinyl good luck...

    Wish I could get a hold of physical copies. Along with a bunch of other Flying Nun bands from that era that are begging for vinyl reissues. I like the S/T a whole lot, but A Beard of Bees really slays me at the moment.

    Great and underrated band! I love A Beard of Bees. I don't know why but they remind me the Wire playing more acoustic...
