The Scientists - 1982 (aka Live Sydney Uni, May 1982)

Cassette only release from 1982. It's official name seems to be '1982', though I have seen it referred to as 'Live Sydney Uni'. It's a great live album - but has never seen the light of day since. Some tracks have appeared on other releases: 'Rubber Never Sleeps' (originally, another cassette only release but now has been re-ished on a dubble LP) and 'Swampland (Birth of The Scientists)'. I think also a track or two appeared on the CD Box Set 'A Place Called Bad'. 

Either way, it's an absolute mystery to me as to why this has not been reissued. It's a killer cassette and deserves to be heard again. Some tracks have never been seen anywhere else ('Tiger Tiger', 'Monsters In The Back of my Mind', 'You'll Get Yours' and maybe 'In Time'). I'm happy with the transfer quality though you can occasionally hear that classic cassette 'fast/slow' whirring. Hey - cassettes die quickly - I was lucky to get this.

The Fabulous Marquises - Honeymoons 7''

1980 release from Australia. Chris Walsh was in this band. He did time with the Negatives, The Champagne Edge and Moodists. Very much part of the Melbourne Punk/New Wave sound keen to experiment and perhaps - get dark.

The Inner Sleeves - End It All 7''

Released in 1986 on the Citadel label (quality is assured). Appropriate title really - none of the members went on to any other bands.

The Relatives - Uncle Theo Comes To Visit 7''

Two singles were released by The Relatives in 1979. This was the first.

The Relatives - Now She's on the Beat 7''

Second and last single. Last output. All over, red rover. All three tracks are joined together to form one track on this download. Sorry, I couldn't be bothered splitting. Besides I enjoy playing all three tracks in one go. Some of the members went into Chad's Tree and Wet Taxis.

The Sharks - Freud-Lobotomy 7''

One and only release from this Aussie punk band in 1979. They have a kind of quirky pop/punk sound - very pleasing to these ears. I rate this highly.

The Klerks - The Groove Tapes EP & Live at The Sussex Hotel

Released in 1985 but I do not have. It was made available as a 7'' EP (not on tape/cassette) so if you can help out, please do not hesitate to make contact.

Hold the press. It's here. Many thanks to Baz.

As a special bonus, we have also been sent 'Live at The Sussex Hotel'. Pure magic. This internet thingy sure is great.
