the single
during the first half of the eightties this band played a mean kind of rock, but as usually happens, recognition and albums only came when it was over. for instance, in 1985 an elpee and a limited edition promo pack were released with their vision on CLEAR SPOT - from the album clear spot, of course - but then they already were the 'beasts of bourbon' for a year. and five years after the original release as a b-side in 1983, the track was selected for the various artists tribute 'fast 'n' bulbous'.

the elpee

since that last release a lot has changed, notably the invention of the ceedee. so, in this next century, it's no surprise there has been brought out a remastered version of their raw but clear interpretation. and don't worry: if you're interested in finding this australian item but can't, you simply can order it directly at: * citadel records * mailorder service * post box 316 * darlinghurst * nsw 2010 * australia * phone and fax +61 293 584 111 * e-mail

p.s. the ceedee release shouldn't be confused with the 12" vinyl version with the same title, as the eepee doesn't have the faintest trace of clear spot!
