Everything from Kim Salmon deserves a listen. From his early (and highly influential) days with the Scientists up to now. Just about all his stuff is gold: early singles ('Frantic Romantic', 'Last Nite'), early albums ('Pink Album', Blood Red River'), Beasts of Bourbon material, solo and the long lost classic 'Rubber Never Sleeps (cassette only gig giveaway but re-released in 2012 by Bang Records). Then there are the oddities with Antenna, Mudhoney, Salmon (aka Rock Formations), Ron Peno (Darling Downs) ... the list is endless. So, where do we start? Well, this EP is my fave. It features the song from the Beasts, 'Something To Lean On' - Absolute Killer.

If you go by the name - this release should appear on Mr Weird and Wacky (geddit - 'German' & 'Humour' - is this an oxymoron). Don't be fooled 'tho - these Perth rocksters deserve a release proper. Heavy bass sound dominates (they're a three piece) and grabs you like early Cure. The quality is quite good and will leave you wondering. By the way, the 'Play Loud' instruction on the cover is good advice.
