Yep.

Yep.

Yep.

A whole year....but here's 10 ( x 10 ) to hopefully ( grovel and ) make up for such recalcitrance ( gulp ).

Yes. Been sitting around the house gathering dust. But here we go, back into it.

Keeping it going we start with the first Whirlywirld 7", Mr Clarinet from Sir Nick and co, and Songs from what is actually the a-side of The Swell Guys single, the other sides getting more of a subsequent airing on various modern day comps and the like ( probably because they are more akin to the later day No V Bleet sound, who is who these guys became when they moved down south to Sydney ). This single is on the Brisbane label Flat which also put out the Tomorrow's Tears single for The Riptides.

We then scoot over to Perth for a track from a split Ep from Ground Zero / No Actresses.

Then we end up back in Newcastle via Sydney for The Limp's Outer Space Moth, a record that was intrinsically part of an art exhibition ( rumours are that this single was mastered pitched down a bit slow and I guess you can hear this meandering and dragging in the vocals ). Before that it's the second release of No Word From China, this time on Gap Records ( the one with the red cover ) as opposed to the Primate version ( the black and white cover ) - which incidentally I played way way way way back on #14. There seems to also be some sort of speed / pitch difference / issue between the two releases in the mastering dept ( most notably on the b-side ). More Pel Mel on #128.

Then finishing up with 4 from M Squared - Scattered Order from the Screaming Tree Ep, Belle Du Soir from their 4 track Ep, Prod from the Contents One Ep and SPK under the guise of Solipsik.

more to come on 128, but for now

#128 is the fifth and final in this mega post for today along the theme of the Oz Punk/Post punk era.

We start herein with more Pel Mel, this time Shoes Should Fit, another single from the Out Of Reason album, more Hugo Klang with the earlier Grand Life For Fools and Idiots single and two from related bands Voigt 465 ( one side of their only 7" ) and Wild West from the Beat The Drought Ep.

Then we're down to Melbourne for the Fabulous Marquises' 7" ( featuring Mr Pierre of "oh I just won some money on a TV quiz show" fame ) and Whirlywirld with Sextronics, which was a bonus single that came with their 12" ( Untitled ) Ep.

Then we've let "him come back" ala PM Walsh in the Out Of Nowhere guise, with one side of their 7" on Prince Melon, a couple of M Squared releases, in the visage of The Same's only single and The Systematics from their My Life In The Field Of Cows Ep. And finally ( here at least ) Informatics from their 4 track Dezinformatsiya Ep.

As you could well imagine the accompanying "From Another Side" mix(es) that goes with today's razzle dazzle will be quite involved as well, featuring more from all the artists featured here and much much more from the same era. This is something I'm working on and will make a grand announcement as to when this is up and ready.

For now though please enjoy -
