    Amazing stuff - I can't believe that they were producing this music with almost no knowledge that they sounded like bands in the UK and US - talk about simultaneous creation!

    Is it amazingly rare and only findable in Oz?
    There are certainly copies floating around Melbourne. Prices vary dramatically, though (AUS 70-150 range from what I saw).
    The 50 Synth Greats LP is good, and obviously the title is inspired by TG, but Layer on Layer is a work of genius. One of those LPs that makes you want to throw out half your collection.

    Btw, I can't recommend the David Chesworth LP highly enough. It's a 2LP version of his first couple of solo efforts and would definitely appeal to the Expiry palate. Some background here.

    The Yaraandoo reissue on Votary/Roundtable is pretty damn fine, too. Great label.

    I need to rip that side of the flexi and post it. Saucy stuff

    That copy is VG at best, but that's OK as most of those pictured were trades. Don't be fooled by the price stickers ... very little money changed hands as I'd brought a pile of Japanese stuff over. Only saw one other copy of TC and it was in better nick but AUS30, which is still OK for a great LP in my book.

    Did you know that the two Don Burrows Quartet recrords as the same?
    The one with the salmon pink swirly cover is a later issue of the one with the photos of the band on it
    Yep, those are destined for the next One Box Record Fair.

    Melbourne finds

    Just back from a week in Melbourne and here's a selection of what I picked up, plus one snap of some trades action from Waxi.

    Any questions, just holler.

    Big 'uns



    I took a stack of RPs up to the listening station at one shop and the one with the drabbest cover had the winning track.
    Lexical Music is treated voice samples in a Terry Riley/Steve Reich style.



    Aussie upgrades



    Raer and reissue





    These from Waxi.


    little 'uns









    Flip of this last one is a stonker.
    A-side is awful and on youtube if you dare.

    The opening track "I Think I'm In Love" written by one of the school pupils is a right proper synthy disco number..! Good stuff.

    Yeah nice find - worth a bit too. It should easily convert into a nice little pile of record tokens if you dangle it over at Waxidermy.
