Various Artists - Do the Pop

Over two decades before the White Stripes and the Hives made 'garage-rock' the new buzz-word, numerous Australian bands were cranking out a raw, high-energy music which had all the elements that the kids are hankering for today. Inspired by two legendary punk-era bands, The Saints and Radio Birdman Australia exploded in the late '70s with literally scores of bands who melded the wild sounds of classic '60s garage-rock and the Detroit rock action of the Stooges and the MC5 into a raw and powerful sound which was unlike anything else in the world. Includes many out-of-print tracks from artists including The Hoodoo Gurus, The Scientists, Lime Spiders, Celibate Rifles, Died Pretty, Lipstick Killers, New Christs and The Hard-On's.
