Far Out Down Under

Here in England we are not very keen on Australia at the moment after what they did to us in the Fourth Test, but all will be forgiven in they somehow remember to be hopeless in the decider at the Oval next week. In the meantime I thought I should extend the hand of friendship to that nation of glowing women and chundering men.

Here are a couple of tracks from a 2002 CD on Big Beat Records called "Peculiar Hole In The Sky", an excellent compilation of Australian pop-psych from the late 1960s. It is available on Amazon in the UK and highly recommended.

Today's choices are "Drawing Room" by The Cam-Pact from Melbourne and "Walking And Talking" by R. Black & The Rockin' V's (real name Rev. Black & The Rocking Vickers) from Woolongong.
