VA - Tales From The Australian Underground
I'm sorry about my lack of updates as of late. I've been bogged down with final exams, and the rest of my free time has been spent watching the Detroit Red Wings almost blow it in the playoffs, and combing the Internet for leaks of the new White Stripes and Shellac records. To make up for things, I'm doing an Ongakubaka first and upping a double album. Contrary to popular belief, Australia isn't just Crocodile Dundee, kangaroos, and koala bears. For whatever reason, Australia produced some of the greatest punk rock and indie music of the 1970's and 80's. Groups like Radio Birdman and The Birthday Party were light years ahead of their British and American peers. This compilation is a great starting point for anyone that has had only limited exposure to the early Australian music scene.
