Following on from last show’s feature on Canberra bands, at the top of this week’s show we air the 1979 track ‘Buried Country’ from Tactics (Tactics formed in Canberra in 1977 and interestingly featured Steve Kilbey on bass in an early incarnation), which is an early example of a post-punk band’s statement against the government’s mistreatments of Aboriginal people.

We introduce listeners to new band from the musical hotbed of Dunedin New Zealand, called Marlin’s Dreaming, as well as 60s inspired Perth-based rock outfit, Catzilla. We also debut ‘SuperHIT’ from CiTR Radio’s own Russian Tim from his punk band Russian Tim and the Pavel Bures!

* Featuring Lime Spiders *

We kick off the show with a few blistering singles from 80s underground legends Lime Spiders (you can find ’25th Hr’ and ‘Out Of Control’ on the indispensable 2 x CD compilation ‘Do The Pop’).  Lime Spiders, led by singer Mick Blood, were in operation primarily from 1979 until 1990.  They didn’t release their full-length, the classic ‘The Cave Comes Alive!’ until 1987 after years of honing their live act in the beer barns of Australia. Their sound is distinctive for the time in that they were powered by punk and almost metallic riffing, but also drawing on the influences of psychedelic and Nuggets-era American rock.  The resulting musical concoction was exhilarating.
