A band that certainly jumped on the punk/new wave band wagon back in the late 70's. The difference was, they had fucking great songs. This album was played to death and is still a record that brings back a lot of fond memories.
Just jumped off the plane from Melbourne (via a Wellington stop over) and brought this double slab of Aussie vinyl back with me. I first heard this mesmerising, psychedelic wig-out while browsing in the wonderful "Polyester Records" on Brunswick Street.
I randomised my selection this evening. After causing a recent furore over his rather public disdain for Trump, it's possibly a good time to revisit. I heard Eminem's recent diatribe while driving to work. I punched the air in excitement, he was spot on!
It was 10 years ago when Robert Plant and Alison Krauss treated the world to a brilliant collection of songs where their rock and bluegrass worlds intertwined. As with that album, this record is all about restraint. There's a few up tempo songs, but it seems he's never in a hurry to blow the barn door down.
Another fantastic sounding remaster from 10cc's early catalogue. An incredibly diverse range of genres and oh so clever-Trevor-ness. Self-referential and up it's own arse but extremely engrossing all the same. Purchased on bright yellow vinyl for a pittance.
Got this big mother fucking slab of 4-sided 45 rpm vinyl yesterday. Once the speed was sorted out the majesty of this highly undervalued "pop" record unfolded. There's a science lesson in there somewhere.
