Translator - Heartbeats and Triggers LP

I vaguely remember seeing this before. My brother may have had a copy of it at one time or something. Based on those clips you posted, I should really check into findig this album.

It's an underrated gem, not too hard to find and not expensive. I definitely recommend getting a copy.

Hoodoo Gurus - Magnum Cum Louder
RCA, 1989




1989 album from this Australian post-punk/alt-rock group. This one got a substantial amount of airplay at the time on MTV's 120 Minutes. These guys are still around and, with the exception of a brief hiatus from 1997-2003, have been pumping out great songs on a regular basis since 1981 or so.

Nice pick. One of those groups I meant to check out forever. Australia had so many great bands in the 80s...

Dead Salesmen - Jealousy
Heart Of The Rat Records, 2015




Another cool band from Australia. These guys first formed back around 1992 even though they've only put out a handful of albums and singles in the more than two decades since.

There's some pretty decent songwriting to be found here, and if you're a fan of other Aussie groups like Hoodoo Gurus, or some of the great stuff that the Greasy Pop label was putting out back in the 80s, you're gonna have a good time with this band.
