Tolley & Dara - Cutheart

Recorded live in Melbourne 1980, file under 'experimental'.  I only bought this in the first place as it was distributed by Musicland.  Avant garde is descriptive.  Not really my cup of tea - too darn Weird and Wacky.

Tolley & Dara - You Know You Know

.... and then they released this.  Still not a convert!

The Terraplanes - Toke

This is the Australian Terraplanes.  Their 'album' is really a mini-LP in the 12'' format.  Tight R&R sound but not much info out there about this band.  I'm sure someone may be able to rectify that in the comments section.


The Terraplanes - A Sides 7''

No idea where I got this single from - it doesn't seem to be listed anywhere.  In the liner notes they refer to 'Toke' so it must have come after that album.

Terraplanes (aka Animals & Men) - Terraplane Fixation

Animals & Men was version 1 (Tracks 1-9) then they morphed into the UK version of The Terraplanes (remaining tracks in this compilation.


Terraplanes - Evil Going On 7''

Pretty weird and wacky cover to their only single.  I'd say there's some evil going on but it ain't hip.  This is the UK band.  The Aussie band are entirely different.

Street Kid Vandal (aka Elroy) - Here It Comes EP

Saw this band live in the late 90's.  In Yeppoon, of all places (that's between the fork and knife).  They slotted into a spot at the Village Arts Festival and were the absolute standouts.  I think one of their members came from the area (Rockhampton).  For me, their music was drastically overlooked.  Bands that change their name midstream (from Elroy to Street Kid Vandal) seem doomed to failure.
