Out Of Nowhere - Single and Cassette

Fronted by Peter Milton-Walsh (The Apartments), they released this cassette (one song - 'The Arrangements') and 7'' single ('No Resistance'/'Remember, Remember').  I have no idea if these unique releases can be found anywhere else but if you're a completist - sink your teeth into these.

The Apartments - The Return Of The Hypnotist EP

This band is based around Peter Milton-Walsh (one time Go-Between member).  They are special and unique - no other way to put it.  Can't imagine a world without their music (sorry if I'm laying this on too thick - but its kinda true).

Anyway, this was their first release.  Hard to get and all that.  Once you've finished with this - try all their albums plus the releases from his other band, Out Of Nowhere.

Panel Of Judges - Self Titled EP

First releases are often the best, this is no exception.  All their other stuff is pretty good but pales in comparison to this gem.  Almost sounds like the Velvets have reunited.

The Motivators - After The Fall EP

Now that your appetite has been whetted with their album - try the EP!  Pretty sure they only put out these two releases (stand to be corrected on that one).  Since they formed from the ashes of The Ferrets, maybe it's time to blog a Billy Miller release when he formed The Spaniards.   This band essentially appeared alongside the Motivators and also specialised in some wired tunes.

Give me a bit of time for that one.

The Motivators - Self Titled

Been dying to blog this very rare and nigh on impossible to find LP.  So ... here it finally is.  They were one of the bands to emerge from the ashes of The Ferrets (Aussie band with the hit 'Don't Fall In Love") featuring Rick Brewer and Rick Petropolis (Billy Miller formed The Spaniards).

The album was released to almost zero response - unbelievable.  This neglected gem is well worth your time.  Check out the first track 'New Blood' - talk about a killer intro. It's rare, but is also darn good (that can be an unusual combination).
