PRIMITIVE CALCULATORS - Primitive Calculators And Friends 1979-82
After reissuing the landmark 1979 live album by Melbournes ferocious synth-punk snarlers Primitive Calculators in late 2004, Chapter Music follows up with a crucial compilation of tracks by Primitive Calculators and their friends from the legendary Melbourne Little Band scene.\r\nIncluding the Calculators only studio recording, the single I Cant Stop It b/w Do That Dance, plus the Little Bands compilation EP (both originally released in 1979 and now highly prized collectors items), plus numerous live and rehearsal recordings, the CD examines a particularly fertile and distinctive time in Melbourne music history, which has been discussed in hushed tones ever since. It takes in bands with names like Thrush And The Cunts and Too Fat To Fit Through The Door, and ranges from disaffected Fitzroy art-punk to Sudanese tribal chanting recorded in London.\r\nWith liner notes culled from a revealing interview with Prim Calcs members Dave Light, Denise Hilton and Frank Lovece, plus rare photos and song lyrics, Primitive Caluclators And Friends is a revelatory companion piece to their live album, which received a rave review from Maximum RocknRoll and a 10 out of 10 Album of the Month feature in Australian Vice Magazine, amongst other stellar reviews on its reissue two years ago. - Chapter Music. Restocked!
