Boomkat Product Review:
Over 130 tracks overviewing Australian Underground Music released on cassette or vinyl between the late 70s and early to mid 80s.
Comprehensive overview of Australian Underground Music released as Tapes/Cassettes or Vinyl between the late 70s and early to mid 80s. The first two LP's feature rare and essential tracks representing the diversity of sounds inside the Australian Underground Music scene of the period. LP3 is dedicated to one side each of label recordings from the Lymph Products catalogue (The Horse He's Sick, Cerebral Haemorrhage, Kurt Volentine, Cut With The Kitchen Knife); & the home label of Browning Mummery--Boxmusik Tapes.
LP4 is compiled by Garry Bradbury (former member of Severed Heads) with focus on bands, projects and collaborations that released on the famous Terse Tapes label such as Wet Taxis, Rhino Rhino, and Pissy Relay Switches. LP5 contains the split LP of Hiroshima Chair and a selection of M-Squared-Label related bands such as Systematics, Scattered Order, Ya Ya Choral, and The Makers of the Dead Travel Fast.
LP6 and LP7 are fully dedicated to the earliest recordings by Tom Ellard’s Severed Heads, containing the highly collectable LPs 'Clean', 'Ear Bitten' and the 'Side 2' tape.
The 7 LPs are accompanied by a large and extensive 48 page LP-sized booklet with lots of valuable information, insights and photos/scans compiled and written by David Courtney. A must-have for those that are willing to explore and dig into the universe of Australian Underground Music of the late 70s/early 80s.
