Album Review
Reviewed 2007-12-01
Second installment of late 70s-early 80s australian post-punk collection. An amazingly incredible collection of otherwise unknown underground gems of various styles, including punk, electro, disco and experimental. Highlights include the frantic, buzzcocks-style "International Voltage", Lisa Gerner's (Dead can Dance) "Centrefold", the weird electro song "Lamborghini" and many others. This is a must listen for fans of Gang of Four, Television Personalities, Buzzcocks, Magazine, Wire, etc. Two thumbs up! Listen to the first volume too... Track picks by genre:
PUNK: 1,4,8,9,14 ELECTRO: 5,3,16
EXPERIMENTAL: 11,12 DISCO: 7,10 WORLD: 15,20 *** No FCCs detected ***
