Witterings from an old indie kid
I have no idea who Bayu and Moopie are but I doth my cap to them as they have compiled a rather delicious album showcasing long lost Australian indie-pop tracks from 1982 to date.
When it comes to this sort of this music it’s the female fronted bands who grab me most and this album is full of them. I have heard of most of the bands here (Even As We Speak, Pearly Gatecrashers, The Cannanes etc.) but some are new to me such as post-punk act Maestros and Dipsos who recorded between 1980/1982.
Their contribution Dot is proof to the old adage that the best things come to those who wait and for comparison’s sake it reminds me of stuff like Delta 5 and The Modettes. It’s wonderful and is certainly going in the bag for the next Culture Bunker! This is a great compilation and most of it sounds as fresh as a daisy. Essential listening.
I Won’t Have To Think About You is out on vinyl and digital formats via the A Colourful Storm label. Get it from here.
