Red Eye Records is a Sydney based indy record label started in 1985
by graphic designer John Foy.
Its debut release was a solo single from ex-Hoodoo Gurus drummer
James Baker issued as The James Baker Experience.
It also ran two other spin off labels Black Eye Records and Third Eye.
The label went on to release The Cruel Sea, John Kennedy's
Love Gone Wrong,The Bhagvad Guitars, Beasts of Bourbon,
The Crystal Set, Steve Kilbey, Deniz Tek, Robert Frost, Growl,
The Cloulds, Drop City, The Scientists,
and Kim Salmon and the Surrealists.
In 1990 the label was distributed through Polydor who later
acquired Red Eye closing it as an imprint moving some acts
across to Universal.
This Album contains many of those acts, from what was one of the
greatest record labels, not least because they signed up the
legendary John Kennedy.
As the title suggests theres both Asides and hard to get Bsides
and some great bands I didn't know before hearing this like
The Mexican Spitfires.
All in all a great listen.
