Peter Jefferies

----Peter Jefferies is a musician from New Zealand.

In 1981 Peter and his brother Graeme Jefferies formed the post-punk band Nocturnal Projections. The band released a few records, and played around their hometown of New Plymouth, as well as Auckland.

After Nocturnal Projections disbanded in 1983, the brothers formed This Kind Of Punishment, and released three full-length albums and an EP.

In 1985 Jefferies released the "Randolph's Going Home" 7" with Shayne Carter. This was followed in 1986 with the "At Swim 2 Birds" LP, recorded with Jono Lonie, on the Flying Nun label. This was reissued on Xpressway and later on Drunken Fish. The "Catapult" 7", a collaboration with Robbie Muir, was released on Xpressway in 1989, reissued by the Chicago-based Ajax label in 1991. Further recordings by Jefferies and Muir were released by Ajax in 1992 as the double 7" "Swerve".

"The Last Great Challenge in a Dull World" album was released on cassette by the Xpressway label in 1990. Another collaboration with Shayne Carter, the "Knocked Out or Thereabout" 7", was released on Flying Nun in 1992. The "Electricity" LP was released on Ajax in 1994, followed by "Elevator Madness" on Emperor Jones in 1996, then "Substatic" on Trance Syndicate in 1998, and "Closed Circuit" in 2001 (also on Trance Syndicate).

Jefferies formed 2 Foot Flame with Jean Smith of Mecca Normal. The band released two LPs on Matador Records, 1995's self titled LP, and 1997's "Ultra Drowning".

Jefferies lives in New Plymouth, New Zealand and is employed by the Music Department at New Plymouth Boys' High School, teaching Drums to students. Jefferies also teaches Drums at Spotswood College, and is a part of the New Zealand Music Commission's "Music Mentoring In Schools Program".
