much appreciated..do my best

Hank said...

Merry Christmas Bruce! Been a couple of days since I checked your blog, you've been keeping busy! Lots of stuff I'm going to check out. Saw in a comment somewhere that you didn't have the cover for Painters & dockers, so here it is:

http://rapidshare.com/
files/79036538/P_DKMA.jpg

It's not the worlds greatest scan, but it looks reasonably OK.
Like you, I find myself going back to 80's stuff. One of the reasons (besides reliving our youth which you're absolutely right about) I think is the freshness of it. Now everything sounds professionally recorded and perfect (unless it's deliberately lo-fi)- and consequently a bit samey and manufactured.

bruce said...

merry Christmas back at ya hank, hope all is good? cheers for the cover

Cobber said...

A bit of assistance for ye:

Downloadable stuff from the J's, usually new acts.

Got a Hummingbirds album being uploaded via the modern miracle of Slow, Wet Piece Of Aussie String at the moment. Will comment again when it's up.

Cobber said...

Hummingbirds? Va Va Voom?

Looks a lot like http://preview.tinyurl.com/3clxbe to me, mate.

bruce said...

cheers cobber, welcome to the family

Cobber said...

Would Ed Kuepper's "Honey Steel's Gold" be of any interest?

Wet string says it won't be up for a few hours yet.... patience.

By the way, if this Blah post was re-dated to some time in the future, it would always sit at the top of the blog.

bruce said...

hi cobber, learn something new every day. I have honey steals gold, also have butterfly net, electrical storm, serene machine and sings his hits, most of the saints and laughing clowns.....I dig ed....do you want any? I'll post them, let me know

Cobber said...

Bruce, you are a dinky-di Legend!

Electrical Storm would be very welcome, and if you've got that Chris Bailey album with Marquis Of Queensberry, I'd be doubly grateful.

Since Ed had 140 minutes still to go on the upload, thanks to wonderful Oz rural internet speed [!@#$* it], I clobbered the upload. Hope to help out with something else later.

Carney68 said...

I just discovered your blog - lots of great music. Thanks so much. Do you have anything by Voodoo Lust, such as their first (?) single "Shake Shake Yeah Yeah"?

tricky said...

Gidday Bruce

Checking updates on your blog is now the top item on my to-do list each day. I am stunned by how much you upload each night. I'm lovin it !!!!

I would love to see if you (or any of your blog readers) could upload any of that Liberation Blue acoustic series I mentioned a few days ago (eg Baby Animals, Angels, Ian Moss, etc).

Here is Paul Kelly's 1987 album "Under The Sun" for Hank:

http://rapidshare.com/files/79375386/_1987__Under_The_Sun.rar.html


Love your work Bruce ...

PS - I have the live disc to "This Is Real" by Sunnyboys if you would like me to upload.

Hank said...

Hi guys! Took a break from the family holiday chaos... and was thrilled to see that Tricky had uploaded the Under The Sun album! Thanks a million Tricky! That will sit nicely together with a glass of whisky tonight after everyone's gone to bed...

Oh by the way, I think Mialee requested solo Jeremy Oxley stuff in a comment a while back. I have an EP which I will upload as soon as I can make a scan of the cover.

bruce said...

Cobber said...

You could try Sharebee, which loads to 4 different download sites.

Try his one - http://preview.tinyurl.com/38cmoo - as part of the flock of Bats seen recently in these parts, I've upped Fear Of God.

bruce said...

cheers cobber, did you check out the mutton birds stuff I found, excellent I've been enjoying it all day, thanks for the reminder

Hank said...

Hello everybody, here are a couple of Mutton Birds albums.

First one, divided into two files, is Flock, a best-of collection:

MB_FlockPart1.zip

Second one is Rain, Steam & Speed. From 1999 I think:

http://www.megaupload.com/
?d=RY4CJGT4

And yeah, they were an excellent band!

I think I got one or even both of these from theTuneLovinJackets blog, a very good place for powerpop(pish) stuff, well worth a visit.

Take care, and thanks everyone for the great music that keeps on coming.

Cobber said...

Thanks to Bruce and the rest of the contributors, my Bats and Mutton Birds education is increasing day by day.

Uploads out of here are soooo daaaamn slooow, but there's Karma County, The Clouds, ands D.I.G (Directions In Groove) lined up.

What next, people? Your call.

Cobber said...

For the guy who cannot use Rapid share, what say we try Sharebee.com, which sets up links to four different downloaders?

Oh yeah, any interest in some of the older Triple J Hottest 100 CDS?

bruce said...

cobber......please, please, please....I want Tripple J stuff..... saw on the net we won the cricket....I really miss playing and watching cricket.... but Thailand has other pleasures
happy new year mate

bruce said...

cheers hank...I didn't know much about these guys....love their stuff

bruce said...

can't wait to hear The Clouds again, keep up the surprises, I'll do the same.

Cobber said...

Righto, Bruce, Jays you will have!

Clouds uploading just now, but JJJ will follow. Takes about 2 hours to up a CD here....[rant about world-quality broadband removed].

Anybody with other Clouds (especially the CLoud Factory track) is more than welcome to up 'em.

Cobber said...

Should Aussie band The Clouds be your interest, then http://sharebee.com/99c036d8 may be of interest.

The Penny Century album and a bonus EP are there.

Cobber said...

G'day Bruce and gang!

I'm in a spot somewhere on the edge of the outback: won't be more specific than that, but no danger of beach cricket!

I've put in a few medium-difficult yards in most places but the West and Tassie. You probably wouldn't have met me, and I'm supremely dull in real life anyway.

I'll see about getting some JJJ stuff up the wire after all the NuYrz-Heave stuff is dealt with.

Enjoy yourselves.

Cob

bruce said...

dark and mysterious cob...typical Aussie...looking forward to hot 100, use to listen to them on tripple J on New Years Day...haven't heard one in years
cheers mate

Hank said...

Happy New Year Bruce and everybody else! Nursing a major hangover...

So this 1992 mini-album from Jeremy Oxley kind of suits my mood today... excellent songwriting - as one would expect - on a bunch of melancholy, reflective tracks.

Anybody know if he has released more solo stuff? If so, it would be most welcome.

Hank said...

Oh yeah, the link...

http://rapidshare.com/files/
80491915/Ponytail.zip

Not quite myself today, sorry...

Hank said...

And continuing the Jeremy Oxley theme, here's a recording of The Sunnyboys from a brief reunion tour in 1991. This CD came packaged with a second disc, a reissue of their 1st EP from 1981, so I've included that as well. Apparently the master tapes for that had been lost, so the CD was mastered direct from vinyl, which means there's a bit of snap, crackle and pop. But, hey, that only adds to the experience in this case, don't you think?

Divided into 2 files:

cheers mate...'hair of the dog' fixes any hangover....haven't heard any solo stuff from oxley, downloading now......back to work tomorrow.... stay cool

mialee said...

I suggested that I'd upload some Paul Kelly if anyone posted any of my requests but I'm wondering if there might be enough interest in posting a live recording of the recent Clash of the Titans show.
I'll leave it to Hank to decide.

bruce said...

we're looking mailee, hard to find

bruce said...

mailee let me know the full list of your requests, we hope to please everyone

Paul Kelly related news.

http://www.paulkelly.com.au/A-Z/

"Welcome to Paul Kelly's A-Z downloads page. Paul is giving away live recordings of many of his songs, starting at 'A' and going through a different letter each month."

My wife just put me on to this. Paul Kelly has downloadables on his site. You do have to sign up for a newsletter, but what the heck, I'm a fan and I buy his albums/tickets, so it's a bonus far as I'm concerned.

Cobber said...

Hank said...

Well, the Clash of the Titans would certainly be fun to hear. As for Paul Kelly, I'm working my way through his back catalogue, and now I'm looking for his Comedy and Wanted Man albums.
So I'm happy either way!

Hi Bruce , Great place you have happening here, a stack of hard to come by albums, keep 'em coming.

Hank I can post PK's Comedy if you still need it - let me know.

On Ed Kuepper could anyone post any of his stand alone albums he has released since 1997 including his latest one.

Happy New Year everyone

Bottlelow

Hank said...

Hi Bottlelow, if you could post Comedy it would be fantastic!

Happy New Year back at ya,
Hank

tricky said...

hey bottlelow

that JJJ acoustic cd is the absolute mutt's nuts!!!! I loved it ... especially Divan (I'm so used to the Lemonheads singing Smudge songs that it is nice to hear the original band sing it. Evan Dando owes Smudge a lot. I have a whole heap of Lemonheads plus acoustic Dando sets .. I can dig up one and post if anyone is interested

PS -Bottlelow .. I am currently uploading Comedy via Sharebee .. it only has 6 mins to go ... may save you doing it.

any more Smudge out there?????

any more acoustic stuff would be eagerly downloaded

Evening all, it's all happening tonight a stack of great albums. Firstly welcome to the family Bottlelow..cheers for your kind words feel free to take what appeals and share to balance the karma. hank,cob and tricky...you never cease to amaze me.....many, many thanks. One thing I ask is could we find some requests for mailee...she/he(sorry i don't know) mentioned a few bands somewhere but I can only find a reference to SMUDGE...well boys can we help? I'm really busy at work, mid term exams and inter school football game in 2 weeks...had training today, can barely walk tonight...getting too old for football...like hell..tricky gunners won last night, can't wait to see Liverpool go down tonight... again thank you to all...love and peace b

hey Bruce

its late here but I'll be watching the Pool on Austar in the morning. I cant find any Smudge stuff anywhere ... only the odd song here and there .. no full CD's. I love tracking stuff down but sometimes the challenge is (temporarily) too great

for lovers of acoustic Oz music, here are 3 Ben Lee tracks from a US radio station ... very nice .. listen to whilst lazing on the deck with a beer in hand

Here's the deal: The following posts are from a circulated torrent site and due to the nature or intentions of the original uploader, I will delete the links if anyone finds that posting them here goes against it original intentions.
If you haven't subscribed to www.dimeadozen.org, do - as there is an abundance of great live recordings being shared.
Secondly two sites which would interest everyone here:
http://www.aussiedownunder.info/Ausrock/index.php - a forum dedicated to Aust music

And if you can help, I'm looking for the Midnight oil tribute album, as well as the Sunnyboys tribute and any releases from Jeremy Oxley (thanks to Hank for uploading one). Also, as noted earlier I'm after the Jim Moginie album which included the Fuzz Face ep and The Hunting Party release which included Chris Abraham, Bones Hillman, and Martin Rotsey.

bruce said...

Firstly many thanks Mailee for the contribution... and I respect your request about the intentions of the original uploader. But I ask the question ... why upload something on to the net if you put restrictions on it's usage? The net is freedom of speech and thought in it's most pristine form. I don't know how old or the background of people using this site, but I grew up in Queensland during the Joh regime, when you could not have peaceful assembly, where there was no freedom of speech, I marched in the protests, I took beatings from the pigs... but we won, the government fell and honesty and respect returned. Five years ago I left Australia because of the censorship and gestapo tactics of the Howard government... Australia was becoming a police state.. I hope that commonsense will return with the new government. I live in Thailand where web sites are closed down if they disagree with the government.I will not post any files you ask to be kept private, but this site has NO CENSORSHIP , NO RESTRICTIONS, people feel free to post, to share, any music I post on this site....no one owns music.. spread the beauty and freedom of music

Reading your Joh years comment, Bruce, I think we may have a little more in common than just a love of music.

Remember when you-know-who had an entire floor of the Commonwealth Bank overlooking King George Square, all the better to observe and photograph the protests?

Bad times, my friend. Worst thing is, the struggle ain't over yet.

Hi people

Good luck with the football Bruce!

Mialee, thanks for the Titans, glad you enjoyed Oxley

Tricky, thanks for the Paul Kelly offer! I now have everything from before 1994 plus Songs of the South, so anything from 1994 onwards would be appreciated. Maybe Wanted Man or Deeper Water...?

Paul Kelly - Wanted Man (for Hank)


http://sharebee.com/bff1084a

mialee said...

There are those who record the live shows then seed these by users connecting directly to their computers. Many of these people frown upon anyone who compresses their original recordings and without their initial efforts we wouldn't have the opportunity to listen to these great shows. Those of you who use bit torrents would be well aware of this but due to many peoples limited bandwith, I have in this instance compressed the files into an mp3 format for yourself and others to listen to.
There really isn't any issue
about restrictions or censorship, its just that uploading files in excess of 1 Gig (in this instance) is not an option for me to do at the moment. Many users actually state on their info pages to copy and share freely but don't compress so for that reason I'm only trying to cover myself by adding the disclaimer.
I hope this clears up your concerns.

tricky said...

Hi Mialee,

thanks for the Hoodoo Gurus concert

many of the concerts I have downloaded are in FLAC format

do you know how to convert these to mp3?

cheers

Tricky

Bottlelow said...

Thanks Tricky for the PK

mialee said...

Tricky:
dBpoweramp Music Converter
Powerful and simple to use.
A simple google search containing: ("dBpoweramp Music Converter" rapidshare) would be tempting if you didn't want to pay.....

bruce said...

tricky

a range of flac converters available at http://flac.sourceforge.
net/download.html

I haven't tried mine yet let me know what you think

Hank said...

Tricky - thanks for Wanted Man, much appreciated!

bruce said...

cob, love the Tripple j stuff, way back I had this top 100 & live at the wireless, long gone, especially Andy Prieboy, Tomorrow Wendy old Concrete Blonde number...what years are they? 91 or 92 I think
Yeah mate I remember the Special Squad...few years back I accessed the Freedom of Information Act and got a copy of my file and photographs... lousy quality just like the Special Squad.

Cobber said...

Yeah, Bruce, '92 was the first Hottest 100, and I think it dates the Live At The Wireless stuff too.

Connection is slow as a wet week (which, coincidentally, we are having, at long bloody last) but Hottest 100 number two is on its way.

Yes, gotta love the Special (School) Branch, but even the regular guys were crooked as a dog's hind leg ... "We saw no indication he had been assaulted" ... then I got my mug shot in front of the magistrate. Heh, you couldn't SEE my eyes for swelling.

It was interstate for me not too long after that.

Hey Bruce, I'm doing fine, hope same goes for you. We had a bit of snow today, so I've been out sledge riding with my daughter all day. Gives you bruises everywhere, but fun...
Love the Rain Parade, old favourites. Do you like their pals Dream Syndicate? Have a bunch of their stuff I could upload.
You bet I'm interested in the Lost Weekend comp, nothing better than some Aussie power pop!

bruce said...

snowing..... never seen snow...sounds fun though...back home I surf, similar to snowboarding I'm told, only you fall into water not solid earth.
lost weekend on the way hank, some time tomorrow.
dig the Dream Syndicate, only have 'days of wine and roses' dig to hear more. I also have Opal with David Roback of Rain Parade and Kendra Smith, who had recently departed The Dream Syndicate.I also have a few albums from The Long Ryders. Let me know if your interested? Do you have anything by Rainy Day project in 1983. Good will to you and your family. b

And a live album, The Day Before Wine And Roses, with recordings made before they recorded their first album:

http://rapidshare.com/files/
81282698/Day_Before.zip

Have to say, they're one of my absolute favourite bands. Saw them live - when Precoda was in the band - and they were fantastic. Their albums had a huge impact on me when they came out, and I still love them.

I have their later albums as well, can upload them too if you like.

Thanks for the Lost Weekend, Bruce, and the Long Ryders anthology which I didn't have so that was cool as well.

Nice pic of you and the kids! Must be fun working with children. They make you realize what's really important in life, if that doesn't sound too pretentious. My life certainly changed completely when when my daughter was born.

Hank said...

Nice Rain Parade post! The live album and Demolition were new to me, many thanks!

Fans of Matt Piucci's guitar playing might want to check out this album:

http://rapidshare.com/files/
81442005/Left_For_Dead.zip

It's an album by Crazy Horse from 1990, with Talbot and Molina joined by Piucci and some guy called Sonny Mone on lead vocals. Not really fond of Mone's singing, he sounds like he would be more at home in a metal band, but the songs aren't bad, and it has a lot of nice guitar playing by Piucci. And Talbot and Molina's sloppy-but-together rhythm section, of course.

Yeah I know, I have to stop using the word 'nice' in every other sentence....

All good hank, cool I could give some thing back to you, you have been very generous to me.I don't have any children but I love working with kids, they are our future, what they become depends on what values and expectations we give them....

Wanting to stay with our currently bias toward Oz and NZ material, I thought maybe some Single Gun Theory would be good after I run out of JJJ.

Opinions?

bruce said...

sounds cool cob.... other day while researching some stuff I came across an piece on the 'falling joys' I had their wish list Lp but gone now.... you got any contacts?

bruce said...

It's been nearly 5 years since I've been back in Oz, never heard of ned collette ... I have no idea.. I'll check for web pages... mel will be happy, I want to do an piece on the falling joys... you got any contacts
cheers for everything

Cobber said...

Sorry, no Falling Joys here, apart from (I think) the Lockit EP in a box of cassettes somewhere in the very back of the machinery shed.

We have had some excellent female-fronted bands on the Oz/NZ scene: Clouds, Falling Joys, Headless Chickens (just to name a few), as well as the solo artists.

I'll have a scratch around the shelves and see what I can find, maybe tomorrow.

Currently uploading JJJ Hottest 100 5 CD2 via soggy piece of wool at about 10Kb/sec.

Hank said...

Hey Bruce, sure could use some of that Bangkok heat right now... cold here, more snow... good day for staying indoors and listening to music

Here's some more Dream Syndicate for you,
the Out Of The Grey album from '86 and the Ghost Stories album from '88. Both are expanded editions with bonus tracks.

So now you have pretty much everything they recorded, there is an album of outtakes which I'll dig up and post soon. Glad you like them, it's good to turn someone on to your favourite band...

They remind me a bit of Died Pretty, another favourite. Do you have any of their later albums - Medication Time, Deeper, Using My Gills... or Everyday Dream?

cob....tex and the boys humbly accepted

cob, hank, tricky.... check out the requests, I'm looking around but my knowledge of finding stuff is 'beginner' at best .... any suggestions, any ideas????????

By the way if anyone wants to say something by way of blah blah blah, send me the text in comments and I will post on the front page.

I'm not overly fond of the term'ownership' but for lack of a better word, this site belongs to all that contribute

cheers going to football training... later friends

Hank said...

Cob - some Cruel Sea doesn't hurt at all, thanks

About the requests.. Mel's I'm not familiar with at all...
but I do have the Deadly Hume album that Paolo wanted. Only it's vinyl.. I've been planning to digitize some old stuff but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Lack of time and somewhere to put the old turntable... but it will happen soon...
So Paolo, check back every once in a while, patience may pay!

tricky said...

here is some Moffs stuff that I tracked down tonight. May not be exactly what Mel was after but perhaps s/he would like some of these:

Interesting to learn that the guy from Sekret Sekret was involved, loved their singles from way back.
Cheers Cob and Bruce

Stay cool hank

Mel said...

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the two Ned Collette posts, really appreciate it! Have found so much great music here, some Paul Kelly albums I was missing, some Dunedin NZ albums I've been trying to get a hold of, + Rain Parade & The Dolly Rocker Movement too, were great finds. I love this blog - keep up the excellent work. :)

bruce .. here is a search tip for you:

cut and paste the link below, go to it and save it in your favourites:

http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch?hl=en&num=100&c2coff=1&lr=&safe=off&ie=UTF-8&q=rapidshare-de-files+%7C+www-megaupload-com+%7C+sendspace-com-file+%7C+rapidshare-de-files+%7C+yousendit-com+%7C+filefront-com+%7C+badongo-com+%7C+www-turboupload-com+%7C+www-megaupload-com+%7C+sendspace-com-file+album&btnG=Search+Blogs

whenever you open this URL, go into the actual search line, remove the word album and instead add in what you are looking for (I usually do this in inverted commas" .. either the name of an album, or the name of the band

the click either Search Blogs or Search The Web

this works pretty well, and helps find great blogs also.

sometimes I simply go to Google and add the following:
"[name of album/band]" ".rar"
OR ".zip"

or, use torrents. seems to be less obscure stuff that way though

what other tips are out there?

mel thanks for your kind words..tricky is amazing at finding stuff

Hank said...

Yeah, Bruce, it's odd that, girlfriends don't seem to appreciate guys fiddling with music on computers. Like right now for example, my girlfriend is talking to me about something which I can't hear becuse I have my headphones on and digging Cruel Sea... she is starting to look a bit irritated...
I was gonna post some Hitmen, but that will have to wait, all I have time for now is to say a BIG THANK YOU to Bottlelow for the Died Pretty and Cruel Sea!!!

Bobbie said...

There was a request for some Clouds, so here's a fairly complete discography.

Starting with:

Pre-Raphaelite LP - Released in 1996 as a bonus disk to the remastered Penny Century LP. This album comprises all of the Clouds pre-debut album EPs and single b-sides. As such, contains the tracks from the CLOUDS EP (Oct 1990), LOOT EP (April 1991), HIERONYMUS Single (Sept 1991), ANTHEM Single (March 1992) and SAY IT Single (Sept 1992).

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PYXJDUYW

Penny Century LP - Originally released in October 1991, then remastered and re-released in 1996, this is the remastered version (containing SOULEATER track, omitted from vinyl release).

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3KF0QE47

Octopus Mini-LP - Released in October 1992, a cracking release.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=W8T9IYO8

Thunderhead LP - Released October 1993. Pointless trivia: The track Domino appears to have a male vocalist, but this is actually Jodi singing. The band were mucking around during mixing and slowed the track right down to see what it would sound like - the result amused them and they kept it. The record company were not impressed as they had planned for Domino to be a leading single.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QX7ZBN58

Beetroot EP - Released October 1994.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=0U2SRHXI

Aquamarine EP - Released August 1995.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FMSD2BCJ

Panel Van EP - Released November 1995.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=8P24OO5D

Futura LP - Released November 1996. I've never understood why so many people are down on this record. It's not their best, but I think it's still cracking.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=1T6PNKZJ


So that's it, a fairly big slab of the amazing Clouds. Jodi's solo records are all amazing and I would urge you to seek them out. Similarly, Tim Oxley's are also brilliant. The girls reformed and released one official EP as The Girls From The Clouds and then disbanded. Tim and Jodi are now playing around the traps as Roger Loves Betty, wonderful stuff.

I would love it if anyone had any of the following to complete the collection:
Say It single.
Bower of Bliss single.
Alchemy's Dead single
Here Now single
Never Say Forever single.
AND THE SECOND (LIVE) DISK FROM THEIR BEST-OF RECORD 'FAVOURITES).

I'll post some Falling Joys and Hummingbirds shortly. Thanks for all the great posts!

While I'm here, does anyone know if that Blackeyed Susans boxset is coming out any time soon?? I've struggled to find their records.

BTW, thanks tremendously for the Clouds fills.

Bobbie said...

Thanks Cobber, I hadn't noticed the Bower of Bliss attached to the Penny Century file, downloading right now!

Brilliant, cheers.

Hank said...

Hey Bruce how are you? I'm really curious now, did you play in any band whose name we may have heard, or even recorded?

bruce said...

played in a few...all indie stuff no major releases, a few singles and EP's and cassette releases and a couple of Brisbane radio compilations 4ZZZ and 4MMM. There is a 4ZZZ tape on the blogg that I'm on...The Chrysalids.. other bands Carp'e Diem, Hand to Mouth, The Mix and Mad Parade. A couple of weeks ago I got a message in the comments from a drummer I played with...cool
