After punk flushed out the putrefaction that rock had largely become by themid-to-late 70s, the three-chord thrasharama quickly became insufficientand the do-it-yourself imperative of punk adapted itself to a number of newalternatives/explorations. One of the most enticing was in a new strain ofelectronic music. Electronic rock had been prominently pioneered in theearly 70s by the likes of Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Eno, and it wasthe infusion of this avant-garde tradition into the do-it-yourself ethicthat gave rise to a worldwide wave of post-punk electronic music (thatended up at the extremes of New Romantic synth-pop and experimentalindustrial noise). Yet while we always hear all about, say, ThrobbingGristle and Cabaret Voltaire in the UK or Suicide and the Residents in theUS, less is heard of the contemporaneous Australian electronic musicmovement, even though it may be more enduring than the others.In Melbourne in the late 70s/early 80s, things were so wide openthat even the pub rock venues were awash with radical, electronic bands. InSydney bands like the Severed Heads, Systematics and Machinations wereisolated outposts, but in Melbourne, electronic music was thriving to suchan extent it was even able to sustain several distinct and quiteoppositional scenes within a scene. Leaving behind the hippy meanderings ofMelbourne's own Krautrock outfit Cybotron, the so-called North FitzroyLittle Bands scene grew out of post-punk electro-rock pioneers Whirlywirldand the Primitive Calculators, and was characterised by its wild,instinctive, very visceral sense of experimentation. If this was expressionism, the scene centered around the Clifton Hill Community Music Centre was contrastingly cerebral, abstract. Although the CHCMC alsoembraced older guard musicians like David Tolley, its stars were the likesof tch-tch-tch and David Chesworth, who had taken to the mini-Korg like itwas the key to a whole new kingdom. David Chesworth in particular set a newstandard when, in 1979, he released his debut album 50 Synthesizer Greats.Nobody had ever made a record like this before. Totally devoid of theslickness of, say, Kraftwerk, the album nonetheless had a K-Tel-like senseof kitsch to it that undermined any saccharine sweetness, giving the37 trax an atmosphere of disquiet that still catches in the ear. Thiswas (and remains) no mere muzak for moderns but something altogether moreinsidious, and haunting, and is an indication of the vibrancy of post-punkelectronic music in Melbourne that the world might only now be catching upwith. Clinton Walker, 2007
I have a copy that’s on innocent records. Says 1978 repressed 1982.. Does anyone have any more info ?
It was originally released as a white label and then reissued in 1982 as part of a double album called Spiral Rebound on Innocent Records that also contained a reissue of Layer on Layer. Was released on CD in 2007 and then again in 2018 remastered on vinyl by Chapter Music
