Martha's Vineyard - 5 track cassette


Here's a great post I got from Steve in Melbourne a couple
of weeks ago when it was rather cold.

Hey Bob
Miserable day in Melbourne, why not send something to SSS??
Here is digital copy of first cassette from Martha's Vineyard
from 1986.
5 tracks plus scan of cover
Don't know if you know of them
but should be right up your folky alley
Steve

Martha's Vineyard were an Australian rock band,
formed in Perth in 1986 by lead singer Peggy Van Zalm.
They shared a similar sound and outlook
to that of fellow Perth bands like The Triffids,
The Honeys and Chad's Tree. Van Zalm's strong
vocals drew comparison with the likes of Patti Smith,
Chrissie Hynde and Joni Mitchell.

Well with a rap like that who can resist?
Thanks Steve
