The Mystrys - Witch Girl 7''

The mystery of The Mystrys.  Garage rock from Melbourne 1968.  Absolute classic and absolutely impossible to replicate.  One thing these guys regretted was always performing in hoods - can you imagine that?

Slugfuckers - Cacophony

This is a double CD reissue of their total output and includes their ultra hard to get LP 'Transformational Salt'.  Great name!  Hail from Australia and could be termed avant-guard or experimental.  These tags ring alarm bells with me as it often translates to crap.  In this case though, I like the band and enjoy their W&W nature.  Also blogged on Mr Weird and Wacky.

Atlas - Self Titled

Atlas was the spark formed by Ronnie Charles (previously with The Groop), Les Gough, Glen Turner (early Wishbone Ash) and Terry Slade (ex Sunshine). They could be described as a 'hard rock/boogie outfit', slotting in somewhere between Wishbone Ash, Free and Status Quo.  This debut album was issued in 1973 - but the band then called it a day in 1974.  All the best in trying to find this LP (it has never been re-issued) - I suggest you just settle for this LP conversion.

Southern Cross - Self Titled

After the Australian band Buffalo called it quits in 1975, guitarist John Baxter and vocalist Alan Milano formed Southern Cross.  They released this album in 1976 with a sound that was more a type of melodic hard rock, quite different to the heavy sound from Buffalo.  Some were quick to point out that it steered towards AOR rock.  Hmmm, not really - but few actually listened to this.  Since it's impossible to find, here's your chance to give it another listen.

Corpse Grinders (Aus) - Self Titled (Mini-Album)

Hailing from Australia, the Corpse Grinders released this killer mini album to hardly a murmur.  Rock n Roll doesn't get much better than this.  Two extra tracks: 'I Eat Babies' (their earlier single, previously blogged) + 'I Go Crazy' from the AuGoGo compilation "Asleep At The Wheel".

Corpse Grinders - I Eat Babies & I'm Goin' Crazy

This is the Australian Corpse grinders - the band before Intoxica.  Great name, great band.  These 7'' singles share a common song '7 and 7 is' - a cover version from everyone's favourite band, Love (Arthur Lee).  BUT, the thing is, this song (as it appears on these singles) is by The Olympic Sideburns!  Partners in crime you could say.  The singles were released simultaneously and are probably as rare as hen's teeth.  Did either band release anything else?  Yup - further blog entries will hopefully contain further releases (from both bands).  Stay tuned, but any further info would be greatly appreciated.

Sunnyboys - Wildcat (1989)

Much maligned post-Sunnyboys album by ... Sunnyboys.  Essentially the band disintegrated after their third album and Jeremy Oxley rejigged this lineup.  Hey - I really like it.  Betcha it's not going to be a part of their latest reissue program.  It sells for silly $$ but not if you get the download here!
