Boomkat Product Review:
Archival Oz-wave nuggets from early ‘80s Adelaide, finally surfacing after decades as demos stored at community radio station 5MMM.
As previewed on the ‘Oz Echoes: DIY Cassettes And Archives 1980-1989’ compendium, The Frenzied Bricks played a sort of angular post-punk patently skooled by the twin inspirations of Neu! and New Order, and easily heard in their ‘Vicious Circle’ gem.
This 7” arrives in tandem with the first pressing of contemporaneous aces from Height/Dismay’ and shares their timeless sidespin on UK and Euro underground sounds, with anglophile vocals and motorik Factory vibes abundant on ‘(Can I) Bridge The Gap’, while ‘Entropy’ follows thru like an echo of Vini Reilly’s experiments with drum machines and tape.
