Shower Scene from Psycho - Cooking With George 12'

The music scene in Australia in the late 70's and early 80's was to 'make a large generalization' divided into 'city sounds'. Perth 'Power Pop - The Stems' Brisbane - ' Folk/Pop - Go-Betweens' Sydney 'Rock - too many to mention' and Melbourne 'Art Sound'. Shower Scene from Psycho fills this niche like a hand in a glove. If you have never heard of these guys, it's hard to describe their music! Some facts early 80's Melbourne hung around with The Boy's Next Door...... discovered playing in a gay bar in St Kilda. This EP doing abstract covers of some well known songs. Really you just have to listen to it...... I guarantee you have never heard anything like this. One of my most prized and rare records.

Alright! Never heard this, but always wanted to - just based on the name... a band with a name like that must be interesting, right? Downloading now... can't wait!

Simply magic - a breathe of fresh air and very, very scarey :-)

If I'd seen this on the shelves I would have bought it based on the cover alone !
