Hi Bob,

I'll scan a couple more issues of FF over the weekend.

In the meantime, however, I was wondering if you or any of your readers can help me identify a mystery cassette I've had lying around for over 25 years.

It's something I bought from a bargain bin in an independent record store (probably in Brisbane) in around 1983-84. The tape is black and has no distinguishing features except a $3.50 price tag. It may have originally come with a magazine, but I just got the cassette.

The bands I recognise on the tape (Frontier Scouts, Pork & Four Gods) are from Brisbane, so I guess it may be a Brisbane only comp.

I've never seen this tape listed anywhere (and I have looked).

Anyway, if anyone knows what it might be or feels like a bit of a challenge, or is just plain curious, here's a link:

Cheers, Steve

Thanks again for posting these I remember seeing these in a little clothes shop down the back of Elizabeth arcade back when it existed (I bought Steven Herrick's first 2 poetry books there) they were a great way to hear some of the bands who's names you heard of but had no recordings released.

More coming Bazzil.

its still fairly cool

Bob or Steve, do you have any more from "cough cough" seminal Canberra experimental band with Cathy Green (drummer, later went to Sydney's X)?

They only released 2 cassette's "No1" and "Conflict", saw these guys at Canberra's "Cock & Bull" with (maybe) Boys Next Door or Models at one point.

bob nebe said...

Sorry Dead Eyes, I dont have those cassettes, maybe Steve or someone else

The only other "cough cough" tracks I have are two more live songs on Fast Forward 013 ('Jungle Song' and 'Enfante') and the version of 'Study for Falling Apart' that made it onto the recent(ish) Inner City Sound Comp CD.

Cheers, Steve

Wow, thanks for posting this one. I've actually got a copy, and I desperately wanted to digitise the Young Charlatans track off it, but the tape keeps fucking up in my deck.

Muchas gracias!
