Artist: AROB/SOOTTYB
Title: They Sent Me Into Space Today
Format: 7"
Label: Greatdividing
Country: Australia
Price: $12.00
"AROB and SOOTTYBs collaboration "They Sent Me Into Space Today" mixes and dweedles electronics "until they slip over your head like a soft mosquito blanket," according to Byron Coley, who also pegs the instrumentation (drums and "flapper") as the tools for accessing a "wormhole into some strange rock universe." Arobs "Cicadas Birds + Gtr," as the title suggests, combines field recordings from the countryside with a home recording made in a bedroom in the city. Plays well on either 45 or 33 rpm, which is rarely a bad sign." -Greatdividing

Artist: PHO BAND/FAUX BAND
Title: Barry O Cup Day/The Door
Format: Lathe Cut 10"
Label: Greatdividing
Country: Australia
Price: $24.00
"Lathe cut by Peter King on the south island of New Zealand on clear 10" polycarbonate. Two 11 minute long tracks recorded at separate times in different places by the same two blokes. Not sure how to describe this, but then thats not really our job...is it? Heres a few words Hypnotic Chaotic Random Repetition Indoorsman Records says: Lovely untutored repeato-strings. Hypnosis or patience test? 60 copies in olde style green paper sleeves stamped with red paint." - Greatdividing.

"Greatdividing is one of the most essential features of the Australian musical landscape. There are few who appear to be appreciative of its rough and rewarding terrain, but those who do know the geography better than most. The two bands here are one band. Both are comprised of Exiles From Clowntown alumni, arob and sootieb. The two loose, side-spanning manifestations on offer bear much in resemblance to the disjointed and purely engaging slop-rock of the Exiles. Its impossible to tell which is the �a-side� due to both being littered with several, seemingly unrelated numbers and sigils. In fact, the record appears to be a testament to irritation par excellence; it is a detested size (10�) assembled out of unpopular materials (polycarbonate), featuring bands that do not exist, playing music that moves an inch. But what an inch it is! Ill go with the Pho Band first; drum and guitar walk around the room uncomfortably, run into each other, shake hands and make nice before leaving for the pub. Repetition is the key here. Two old blokes in a room, the sound of encroaching senility (or refinement). Drunk, abject, confused, where else to go but down? Its ok, I can say that without fear of too much reprisal, arob used to be my landlord (sorry about the rug). The �other� side is similarly aimless n entrancing . Hypnotic guitar and what might be an organ or might not be push a rock up shit hill but never reach the top. Nor do they need to, it is the process that matters. Despite being a disreputably unreliable format, these two cuts sound bloody fantastic. If music appearing on a lathe is a deterrent for you, then you should probably sort your life out anyway." - Crawlspace Magazine.



Artist: V/A
Title: A Range of Greatdividing
Format: Cass
Label: Greatdividing
Country: Australia
Price: $10.00
"cassette compilation of various greatdividing related stuff from as far back as 1989 & as recently as 2009. an edition of 50 with individually hand stamped black on white covers with track listing on the reverse side." - Greatdividing.

"A totally great compilation of Australian outsider rock, recorded between 1989-2009 and presumably rooted around Melbourne. There a couple of fine archival tracks by 3 Toed Sloth, but the rest is of an equally ginchy quality--thuggy, VU-damaged, lo-fi, mumble-core beauty. Free your ass, the rock will follow." - Byron Coley, The Wire.
