The Jackals - Pheal

Perth band with links to The Mutants Of Desire and The Boys.  Pretty well much neglected but live they sure kicked.

Perth has a habit of throwing good bands our way, but they can be dropped just as quickly.

Seminal Rats - Omnipotent

This is the first album I bought from the Seminal Rats in 1987.  OK, it's not really a full length album but boy oh boy - it sure is fun.  Heaps of songs of course and full blast rock n' roll.  Is there any other form of music that you MUST listen to.

Seminal Rats - Life In Necropolis

If we only blog the Seminal rats for their album covers, that could be reason enough.  How can anyone not like these guys.  As it turned out, when this was released in 1990 - no one really bought the album.  There's no justice.

Phlegm - Self Titled Cassette

Different Phlegm to the previous posts.  These guys hail from Darwin and recorded these tracks around 1986 - mostly live and at parties.  It's raw, Wired and Wasted.

Mu-Mesons & Phlegm Split 7''

Released and promptly ignored in 1995.  My main interest here lies with the Mu-Mesons, and Jamie Leonarder.  Whoah - these guys are out there.  Bigtime.  Full-on.

Live gigs were an event with audience members and the assorted joining in.  Apparently, on the way to a gig, band members would enlist anyone to be a part of the band.  This included various homeless 'victims' and the occasional mentally unstable volunteer.  As you do.

This is their one and only release.  The song 'Listen Bretheren' on a split 7'' with Phlegm.  Now, as for Phlegm, they're probably even more full-on. 

Oh yeh - when will there be official compilations from Mu-Mesons?  A long time coming.  Obviously we will have to make do with live gigs but thats a given.  Please ....

Phlegm - Mr Hoo-Ha Visits The Non-Stop Pissing Circus

Three guys from Sydney: Oren Ambarchi, Robbie Avenaim and Nik Kamvissis, now quite 'famous'.  I guess they ask 'What is Music?'  Don't know if they really provide an answer with this release (I have never been able to listen to it from start to finish) - but they do ask such that it gets you thinking.  A little bit obnoxious perhaps.  Sheer brilliance you could say.  Having said that, I do like the work lately of Orem Ambarchi - well worth checking out.

Anyway, here's the album to give your mind and ears a solid workout.

Note that there are other releases from Phlegm that I am chasing the mp3 files for and would love to share:

  • 'Live' CD
  • 'Poppin' and Milkin' CD
  • 'Pissa Pissa and The Cunt Is Jammed' Single

Please, can you help out.  An email would be appreciated.
