Ash in October helped shape the fledgling electro music scene
in Brisbane, performing and recording in the late 1980s at a time
when electronic music was not widely accepted in the ‘pub rock’
dominated local music scene.
The reworking of the tracks is outstanding, reminds me of the early
to mid 90's Human league, the dub version is fantastic too.
One of the many bands that as past of Brisbane's music history
need to be remembered and heard by the current generation
that is of course very open to electronic dance music.
The original 1989 vinyl double A-side single,
Greater Crime / Sex Machine has recently been seen online for sale
in second-hand record stores for as much as $99.
Ash in October have now re-worked and re-recorded those tracks
and for a limited time is offering FREE downloads of the new and
old versions to mark the 25th anniversary of their original release.
Ash in October were and are Lee Lee Ingram, Robert Draycott,
Richard Fenney and Paisley Hadley.
