This week’s show comes to you direct from the deep, deep heart of my stylus. Yes baby, its vinyl, all the way down for a shellacing you will never forget. Put simply, I have brought together some of the cool Aussie stuff I found not in the Great Southern Land, but in crates and boxes all around the world. Some of it rare, some of it ain’t, but all of it is rocking.
Let’s start with Brisbane’s Ups and Downs where I found their ‘In the Shadows’ single in a Rocabilly shop in Paris, sitting Right next to Ratcat’s ‘Baby’s got a gun’. The common thread, they were best released on one of Sydney’s best label, the mighty Waterfront. Two bands with very similar styles I think, firstly we have Mushroom Planet (released on the Hot label) featuring some ex-celibate rifles and then the Headstones, ex of Brisbane located in the great south of Sydney with ‘You got love’. Both were found in a cool shop in Cologne, Germany along with the first Mark of Cain single. more at http://bit.ly/zQ72w5
