Public Execution - Methadone Slave B/W SS Brigade


Matt has a motherload of goodies and he is bloodly nice
guy who wants to share the love.
He has recently returned to Brissy and has been following
the SSS blog with interest for some time.
Thanks heaps Matt and now I'll hand over to Matt to
tell us about this 7" and the band.


"Incendiary Brisbane punk band from early '80s.
This 7" was cut in 1982
as a 3-piece, Terry on bass
and vocals, Steve, guitar, and Fred on
drums.
Later joined, (if my memory serves me correctly-
and it may not,
so apologies all round) by bass
player Lindsay Dalgliesh, following his
departure
from Mystery Of Sixes.
This lack of wired appendage freed up
singer,
Terry, to antagonize and terrorize audience and
furniture alike,
with most gigs ending up in violence
and carnage. Further, stronger,
recordings were done
(I think with this line up), but never surfaced."

Donat has via the comments filled in some more background
on this band which is well worth sticking onto this post.
Thanks Donat!

"Fred Noonan from SixFtHick and other current
combos was
of course the drummer who played in
Public Execution.
Lindsay Dagleish did indeed
play bass at some point of the
bands career
and Steve Playford was on guitar.

Public Execution came from a sphere of little-
known bands
from the southside of Brisbane
like Malicious Joy and Sabotage,
members of
whom became the basis of Mystery of Sixes.

PubEx appeared towards the tail-end of
Brisbane's golden
post-punk years at the
Aussie Nash Hotel where Brisbane's
hardcore
scene began to publicly blossom.

One of Brisbane's first bands to cite the US
Hardcore scene as
a primary influence.
Terry was quite the Black Flag fan

and was also a die-hard fan of the Stranglers
- not to mention Pavlov's Dog!
PubEx were embraced by the 1st wave of
Brisbane punks and
hence the reason why this
particular 45 was produced by none
other than
Shake/Savage Music label's own Rod McLeod -

bassist and/or guitarist of such wide-eyed
hopefuls as
Just Urbain, Young Identities, Kicks,
Bodysnatchers etc
and more recently seen in the
Pineapples from the Dawn of Time.

This single, along with their tracks on a split tape
with Kicks
(An Execution of One's Indulgence)
and an cassette EP of
their own will appear in the
not-too distant future on a 45rpm 12"

Terry Devery in the early part of this century
played in a heavy
blues trio King Rat, with early
Mystery of Sixes and Sabotage
sticksman Alf Lunghi.
They released a couple of CD-r EPs before disappearing."

What a time! Mystery of Sixes(or 666s?)& Public Execution both stick in my memory. Lindsay of MoS was the little bro of a girlfriend of the time. I would have been 17 or 18 yo. Repressive state govt,local punk rock and exploring drug altered states ala Bill Burroughs and Hunter S.Great memories!
