Ya Ya Choral are one of many bands on a fairly obscure but truly great Sydney label called M Squared, which existed in the early-mid 80's. I am sure more M Squared will feature more on this blog as I have nearly everything on the label. The sound of "Waiting Time" however is not indicative of the rest of the label, which tended towards a more post punk / electronic / experimental sound. M Squared was also a recording studio which many bands in the Sydney scene of the time recorded in. But I guess more on that when they appear. The Units were from Adelaide and 'Grill Room' is the B-side to "Baby You Flirt". The Shop Assistants track is from an Ep which has 'Safety Net' as it's main track. The Numbers were a Sydney band, not to be confused with the Brisbane band called the Numbers who had to change their name to The Riptides because of the Sydney Numbers. Tinytown were also from Brisbane but moved to the UK in the early 8o's and worked out of there.
