Tales From the Australian Underground - [2006] Vol. 2 1977-1990 (2CD)

For the uninitiated, Tales From the Australian Underground Vol. 2 1977 - 1990 charts the evolution of the Australian alternative sound beginning with the big bang of 1976 and the debut recordings of both Radio Birdman and The Saints, right through to the digital and alternative-mainstream crossover of the early '90s.
Using 7 inch records in the main to provide the storyline, Tales uncovers a bevy of vinyl treasure in the quest to tell the truth. Radio Birdman, The Saints, The Birthday Party, Tactics, Scientists, Sekret Sekret and the Triffids are just some of the acts making the graduation from volume one, whilst Teenage Radio Stars, SPK, The Singles, Sacred Cowboys, Severed Heads, Salamander Jim, Ollie Olsen, Primitive Calculators, feedtime, The Stems and the Widdershins are just some of the thirty-four debutantes.
