Slub - Self Titled Cassette

An interesting 1986/87 cassette only release from Melbourne band Slug. They featured multi-instrumentalist John Murphy (Assoviates, Orchestra of Skin and Bone, Hugo Klang, MaxQ, Ollie Ollson, SPK, Hugo Race, Whirlywirld, The Wreckery, Blood & Iron, Box the Jesuit and Whitehouse). There is an 'etc' after that as he wasn't only restricted to these bands/groups. Too many to mention I guess. He passed away in 2015. 

The band also featured Vicky Riley on vocals and violin. She passed away in September 2012 at the Royal Darwin Hospital after being struck by a car while crossing the road on her bike. 

Other people on the cassette are Chris Hughes, Peter Kenny, Sonke Rickertson, Paul Dalby, JP Kenny, Tony Wyzenbeck with two 'performers' listed (Ann Scott & Chris Coleman). I have no idea what is meant by 'performers'.

It was recorded by Simon Grounds. The art work for each cassette cover was hand printed so no two copies are alike.
