The Blackeyed Vendors Of Paradise

Steve from Melbourne a long time contributor to the SSS blog
and sharer of much fine music has sent this rare and wonderful
recording from a 3RRR live to air of a band that has a line up
like the who's who of Australian music!
Many thanks to Steve yet again.
Now over to Steve!

A combination of Rob, Phil, Kathy and Mark from
The Blackeyed Susans and Graham and Marko from
the Paradise Vendors.
Also along are Robert and David McComb from
the Triffids who at that time were on
(eventually permanent) hiatus.
Graham and Dave were not in the 1992 incarnation
of The Blackeyed Susans.
This was a 3RRR lunch time gig and there are sound balance
problems in the first couple of songs.
Also, not the best generation tape but the songs shine through.
