1. World War 3 - XL Capris ( Axle Recs Aust 1980 )
XL Capris were around in Sydney from around 1979-83 ish and featured Johanna Pigott on vocals who went on to from another band called Scribble and also released a few songs under her own name. I dunno if you can read the sticker on the front of the Darling Buds cover, put there by the record shop ( I think it was Red Eye ) but it says "Out Fuzzes The Primitives" which makes me chuckle !! The band Shy Impostors were from Sydney and featured Peter Oxley & Richard Burgman who then went on to form The Sunnyboys, with the mighty Jeremy Oxley. 'At The Barrier' came out on Phantom Records which I had a little rave about in an earlier post. The Clientele...god I love The Clientele - AND especially this record, it's a Double A side with The Saturday People doing "Grace" as the other A side. The Felt song is the B-side to 'Rain Of Crystal Spires'. The Gnac track was one of three tracks on an Ep called "In Mauve". and finally I need to comment on the TV 21 single as it's not their usual sound, mostly due to being produced by Mike Howlett, and his work in the 8o's synth vein I always seem to enjoy. Yeah, love your work Mike !!
