Hence it's time for the "Rescued 12 Inches" -
Hope that makes sense !!
So today it's 10 songs from the hearty survivors who made it through the carnage
Ok all that explained - we kick off with The Pastels, obviously the a-side/main track, followed by the Weddoes from the 12 of "Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now". Then it's a track from side 2 of the original Lazy 12/1st version of "Thru The Flowers" by The Primitives, some McCarthy from the 12 of "Should The Bible Be Banned ?".
After that it's some David Westlake ( teaming up with some Triffids ) on his so-called "solo mini album" ( post The Servants ), the Choo Choo Train omnibusy type Subway 12, then my old Sydney faves The Lighhouse Keepers second release a 12 called "The Exploding Lighthouse Keepers" - also featuring a much better track "Springtime" but sadly that has a jump/scratch, but it's been on a few of those Aussie comps of the era so not so hard to hear..
An Aussie version of The Railway Children's "Reunion Wilderness" album which featured extra tracks to the UK version, followed by those likeable Irish lads who really do love Penelope, with one of the 4 songs on their ep.
Wrapping it all up with The Wolfhounds and the A-side of that particular 12, it was a toss up between "Cruelty" and "I See You" from side 2...
ok, the good thing is these records still exist in my collection so especially..please enjoy !!!! -
ps my scanner is still wobbly - ie the Hey Paulette 12 isn't two-tones of white....yet that's how it shows up via my scanner..
