This post is just a reminder / heads-up about the ABC radio "hindsight show" documentaries from a few weeks ago that featured the post-punk scenes of sydney and melbourne. The first episode features pel mel and many M squared bands. The second episode features Primitive Calculators / little band scene of melbourne. The ABC site is still hosting downloads here but will probably disappear soon as new shows come online. Prehaps bob will sharebee upload the episodes and link them here in the future. Both docos get the chuck award "100% fuking awesome" for august 2010.
The Turn it up to 10 blog has a recording of Primitive Calculators in brisbane supporting Lightning Bolt not so long ago..
a video of one song from that same gig appears on this blog - eternal soundcheck
About this time last year Richard Lowenstein guest hosted a night of Rage and introduced the clip for "I Can't Stop It" from late 70's. Check out the extras on the recent dvd reissue of classic "Dogs in Space", especially the recently produced doco "living on dog food".
Mess and noise and Undercover are reporting a gig for this Friday night in melbourne and news of an upcoming recording...
