Mr X - Never EP

Saw this band live a few times, once in Burnie when I was working nearby in Luina.  It was a great night and these guys kicked.  Later, in 1982, they released this EP.

This band was one of the few original punk/rock bands in Tasmania.  We should have heard a lot more from them.  This blog hopefully keeps their music alive.

Mr X - Take Aim 7''

This single came out 1983 but it was their last recorded output.

If there is anything else out there by this band, can you please get in touch.  Tassie devils can't die out!

Toy Love - Squeeze EP

Ooooh I so like this.  Bought the EP way back when but knew nothing about them.  The cover looked 'poppy' (with a bit of punk thrown in).  Then, the plot started to thicken: New Zealand, Chris Knox.  Flying Nun etc etc.  These guys are world class and I listen to it continually.

You will too.  Best to get their compilation 'Cuts' if you want more.  Just do it.

Airlord - Clockwork Revenge

From 1977 - with Punk Rock on the horizon (already here really), we get this slab of jazz infused New Zealand proggy rock.  The times were changing, so this slipped thru the cracks.

Bent Records Discography (Brisbane)

Bent Records released albums from Brisbane/Queensland bands in the 80's.  Although short lived, their output captured a sound that was not all that different from the much revered Go-Betweens.  The output from this independent label is listed below and the download link compiles all the music plus album covers.

Supernaut - Self Titled

Supernaut crashed onto the Aussie scene around 1975/76.  It was really on the basis of relentless touring, talent and the single "I Like It Both Ways".  They transitioned pub rock and punk.  I guess they were like Hush, AC/DC, The Angels and Midnight Oil.  Their first (and only album from that bandname) is included here for downloading.  You will also see all their singles.  Of special note is "Lick My Lolly" (contained as a B-side on "Too Hot To Touch").  Well done lads.

Download Album

Download the following singles:
"I Like It Both Ways"
"Let's Spend The Night Together"
"Too Hot To Touch"
"Unemployed"
"The Kids Are Out Tonight"
"Young & Innocent"

That's pretty much their entire output.  They then morphed into The Nauts ........

The Nauts - Self Titled

... with The Nauts, came this little gem.  Wow.  Great pop/rock.  Impossible to dislike.  They also released 2 singles, included here for your listening pleasure.

Download Album

Download the following singles:
"Black Market World"
"Misfits"

Why has there never been a re-release of all their output?  "Black Market World" is an absolute killer track.  OK, onto the next stage: This Is This .....
