Screaming Tribesmen - Formaldehyde

There's nothing tribal about the sound of these Aussies, and they don't scream either. Their music is full of pop-song harmonies, including "oohh" and "ahh" background singing, jangle chords and repeated refrains. From beginnings as a post-Ramones punky ensemble (on the first four-track EP), they've gone through an assortment of members and sonic textures but all of their releases have been exercises in good old pop-rock.

I found this a couple of days ago, can't find any reference to this disc....... searched the web sites ..... nothing.
No matter, always liked The Tribesmen.... and I like this record. It may be an overseas release or rare addition here!!!!!

Well, all I know is that it was produced by Rob Younger and released in 1993. Maybe only in Europe, I remember a friend of mine bought it in Germany.
