classic cover

Michael said...

Australian in musical spirit, but thoroughly American....One can also try to track down the Shakedown comp cd that has a bunch of these tracks (Just Urbain, Kicks, Young Identities...). Probably not easy to find, though, even in Australia. Can send that along if needed.

Guess I assumed you must of came from Australia originally, to have an interest in what is pretty oscure stuff.

I am the guy who put this together with my mate Axel (Vampire Lovers) all those years ago. These bands were even better live and Brisbane was a hot bed of racism, facism, and that's why the cover came about. That is Joh Bjelke Petersen on the cover and he was a corrupt jumped up little Hitler. The entire compilation was done over night in a classical music recording studio as it was down time and cheap. The record cost about $1000 bucks to print, press, record, and cut. I see copies going for $400-500. There were 50 done without the stickers before the "solicitors" got involved. The cover is by legendary music promoter Paul Curtis (manager of Regurgitator) who took over my role in Brisbane when I moved to Sydney then London. I still have my copy and the reel to reel and acetates. cheers Johnny
