Described as a semi - official bootleg these tunes were recorded
as demos for their 1st Lp "Send me a lullaby" in Brisbane, in 1981.
I like this album a lot cause it shows a band beginning to develop
and develop into a highly original and very special band.
I suppose the true genius of the Gobetweens becomes complete
when "Before Hollywood" is released and that was where I
started with them. That was the first gobs stuff I heard
and I worked backwards from there.
The first time I saw them play was in 1982 as they toured for
the before hollywood Lp,I'm glad I saw them as a 3 piece cause
to me that was the essence of this great band.
A short but historic document from a band which should have
been bigger than the Beatles.
