And An A - Affirmation 12''

West Australian (Perth) band release from 1985.

These guys traveled a different path to most. Perth is well known as the world capital of covers bands - these guys were never going to let that happen.

My interest in their music was started when I heard that they had a 'disco krautrock industrial' sound. Obviously an offhand comment but not far off. I also went to school with the lead singer - Dave Kelsall.

And An A - Taken As Gospel 12''

1986 release and the band calls it quits. No idea if anyone went on to bigger and better things.

Rocks - You'r So Boring CD (1977-87)

 I've included this compilation CD (same name as their first single/EP) because it contains many goodies: 'Pretty Vacant' cover version, tracks from the 'Swinging From The Trees' and 'Not So Humdrum' compilations, rehearsals and demos. Can't get better than that.
