Kek '66 - Self Titled

Dutch garage rock at it's finest.  If the world was a fair place, these guys would be having hits left, right and center.  But it ain't ... they are essentially  unknown.  The cover is a dead giveaway of what lies inside - jam packed with pure adrenalin.  You need to hear these guys then go out and spread the word.

BTW - they were previously 'The Kliek'.  Note to self - must also blog their stuff.

The End - Self Titled Cassette (+ Single)

The End were a punk institution in Brisbane (Queensland) in the late 70's / early 80's featuring Brett Myers (who later went on to form Died Pretty).  This release was put out by Hot Records and MUST be released on CeeDee someday!  This download also contains the 7'' single (My Confession/White World) - legendary stuff.

Plagal Grind - Self Titled Mini-LP

I've got a real soft spot for anything from Alastair Galbraith (Kiwi Popster) and this sits on top of his output in my mind.  Is it still available - course not.  Is it different - you better believe it.  This is totally unique, nothing out there is like this.  The cover art instantly tells the listener that what awaits is mind-bending - highly recommended.

Murder Punk - Vol 1 & 2

I've yet to find a better punk rock compilation than this.  It's a bootleg with a dubious and somewhat tasteless background.  Titled 'Murder Punk', it has an address for Martin Bryant (Port Arthur, Tasmania).  That's kinda weird - he is one of Australia's most notorious mass murderers.

Once you get past this and look at the tracks inside - it's hard to dispute the tag of 'best ever punk' compilation.  Being a quality bootleg (the sound of cooking bacon is intact) and containing some very hard to get singles makes this compilation entirely essential.
