Hi Bob. Always enjoy visiting this blog. Thanks. I wonder if anyone has any other recordings of the band Brasilia? I recall seeing them at Metropolis (the Myer Centre basement) way back when and they blew our young minds. I also have some out of print recordings from around this era of bands such as Webster, Pollen, Lyngren etc that I'll endeavour to put up if there's any interest. Cheers.

i saw brasilia once at the story bridge i think.. they were toted around town as a bit of a super group at the time then martin lee got involved with the gurge and they took off and this band disappeared from memory. gurge myspace - http://www.myspace.com/regurgitators spells brasilia as brazilia.
ive not seen any other recordings around of these guys.. fuk they were tight- great sound.

toxic garden gnomes were a live favourite for me at this time.. many fun sunday nights at the orient hotel when they would alternate weeks with the howlin moondoggies. that venue would rock when it was packed to explosion with ppl on the street peaking in the windows- gnomes did lots of covers like "play that funky music while boy!" and did a version of "dazed and confused" for a while. they built up a huge crowd and then disappeared to melbourne.
New years eve at the orient would rock out with blowhard downstairs and dreamkillers upstairs with a ton of other bands during the night.
Lolita carbine were friends of the purple avengers from memory.. saw em at the lands office once just before the whole "funkyard" explosion of the nineties.. fine blurry memories for an old fart to ruminate on !

I never saw the vampire lovers live (sadly) but ive got some singles ill send over to bob shortly
viva le blog!

Just to add to Chuck's recollections of the Toxic Garden Gnomes I was at Toowong High when mainman Michael Wade was there in '82/83. He would have only been 15 or so but he already had buckets of poise/charisma. I think the Gnomes were born when he roped in an even younger Mark Hornby to jam with him on drums. I went to a party at Michael's place on Orchard Street where I'm pretty sure I met The Technicians - remember them? The Glaswegian techno group who migrated to Logan (of all places!) and released at least one (dodgy) single and got on Saturday morning music tv? This would have been '84 - I don't know what they were smoking that night but they called it 'elephant dust' and it darn near killed me.... I saw the TGG support the Vampire Lovers at the National Hotel that same year, and although I was never a fan of their particular style was still impressed by Michael's confidence and competence on stage - the VLs that night didn't have a lot in their repertoire beyond 'Buzzsaw', alas. Later in Melbourne the Age Entertainment Guide would carry frequent gig listings that made me think there can't be two bands in the world with the same ridiculous TGG moniker. Shoulda gone to see them but I was too busy following North.....

I worked for the Pasquale family in Brissy and knew Sam De Pasquale from Spillage, who gave me this wonderful CD. Heh… Far Que still cracks me up!

Another one I'd love to hear if you've still got a copy of it. Indigo Husk's AM Radio Diet is by far one of my favourite Australian albums, and can be found on Bandcamp with bonus tracks! Such a shame they didn't become bigger than they did.. Cheers Bob!

Once again, would love to see this reuploaded if at all possible Bob.

Cheers!
