Rude Kids - Safe Society

Much sought after release.  Never seen the light of day with a CD reish so you'll have to make do with this OKish conversion from LP to cassette then MP3.  Despite this, you will be hooked.  Don't pay silly $$ on ebay (that's even if you're lucky enough to see a copy) download here and rock-on.

The Girlies - Collection

Life is cruel.  What a waste.  If ever a band deserved the big time - my vote is for 'The Girlies'.  Goofy name but their sound kicks - it's totally wired.  Hey - that;s why it appears on W&W.  Here is the collection of all their releases: One EP + two 7'' singles.

The Joeys - Pouch

Aussie group doing Ramones covers.  Can't beat that!  The band has plenty of pedigree but the exact make-up escapes my memory (badly).  I'm thinking Celibate Rifles.  Sure there are others, but ....

The Cateran - Bite Deeper

Why was this band completely overlooked?  Took me ages to track this down and it's well worth it.

People With Chairs Up Their Noses

Irresistable.  What a great name!  Who'd have thought that one up.  OK, we've had the Cunning Stunts, Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel, The Incredible Shrinking Dickies and then there is ... People With Chairs Up Their Noses.  Priceless.  Early Aussie punk who only had one release proper.  A split single with Plays With Marionettes (another great name).  One of the members (Jim White) went on to form the Dirty 3.  Truthbetold, they were actually very 'punk' and very influential.  It could be argued that this should also be featured on Mr Weird and Wacky - no argument there.  On this download you will also find 'Song Of The Sea' (appeared on 'Can't Stop It Vol 1' - Aussie Punk Comp) + some tracks from the 'Fast Forward' Cassette magazine (seminal classic if ever there was one).h

'th Cigaretz - Crawl Rite Outta My Skin

Classic punk but no one seems to know about these guys.  Logic tells me that very few will actually search out this item (the spelling itself probably makes this improbable!!).  Anyway, here it is in all it's glory.  Wasted and Wired (and vice versa).  Hey check it out - you won't see it anywhere else.
