The Chrysalids & Spiders and The Fly - Texas Chainsaw 7''

Brisbane pop from The Chrysalids in 1986 (on Tombstone Records).  This is actually a split 7'' with Spiders and The Fly but I know nothing about this band. Always enjoyed The Chrysalids though.



The Chrysalids - Stop The Clock 7''

Second (and last) release from The Chrysalids (1987).

Danny Graham - Self Titled

I was drawn to this LP around 1982 as the cover looked a little bit punky.  It could've been one of those quirky post-punk pop gems that you turn up in the el-cheapo bin.  Slapped it on the turntable and was somewhat disappointed.  Danny churns out some sort of Aussie folk slash psych sound.  I later found out it was released in 1980 and is highly revalued by collectors (selling for big $$$).  Hmmm, wonder why.  Still can't answer that one - but here it is - you decide.

I'm too lazy to split the tracks so all you get here is Side 1 and Side 2.  Oh yeh, he earlier had a bit to do with Iva Davies of Flowers/Icehouse fame (in a band called The Afghans).

Fake (Steve Kilbey) - Self Titled

Took me a while to track down this 1994 release from Steve Kilbey (he of The Church).  You won't even find this on his dedicated website.  It contains 2 CD's with the second being some sort of a symphony (all tracks are untitled).  When released, versions of this did not contain the second CD.  Like all SK related music - well worth it.

The Apartments - Initials PMW (Live At The Junk Bar) EP

Recorded about 11th of October 2015 in Ashgrove (Brisbane, QLD).  The Junk Bar is a converted shop which one could now call 'very intimate'.  As in, Tiny.  About the size of your living room, it offers standing room only but wow - what a venue to hear someone like Peter Milton-Walsh (aka The Apartments) play material from his last album 'No Spell, No Song, No Madrigal'.  One of the great Aussie albums of all time (BTW).

This EP is special for me - I recall the gig with such fond memories.  Thank you PMW.
