Artist: V/A
Title: Left of the Middle: Australian Soft Rock, Folk, Private Press & Otherwise
Format: Cass
Label: Redundancy Music
Country: Australia
Price: $7.00
"A scattered collection of the forgotten and fringe from the back roads of Australian popular music, genre-less wanderers left behind in subsequent Australian archeology. Mixture of crude private press and slick major label recordings; teenage thug sharpie rock, progressive folk musicians playing with and against the strains of bush music traditionalism, Bobb Trimblesque psych-folk, brief glimpses of West Coast singer songwriter beauty, alien flamenco guitar, baroque jazz, Hazlewood aping country artists, and the sound of people missing the mark. For some this may be a tougher listen then the harshest noise, others will find it a strange and rewarding journey into the unknown losers of Australian music history. Pro press, 20 tracks, 71 minutes, full notes included on insert." - Redundancy Music.
