Painkillers - Feel The Pain ($25.00 - CD)
The Painkillers bring together the battered acoustic guitar of Joe Bludge and the massive rock n roll beats of James Baker. A fixture of the Perth scene, The Painkillers have played more gigs in that city than any other act since forming there in 2005. Their sound began with the common ground between Bludge's love of proto-rock and Baker's punk-tinted take on rock n roll, but quickly evolved into a genuine garage audacity that draws upon other influences at whim.
Painkillers - Love Cancer ($18.00 - CD)
The Painkillers second album traverses a range of styles, from raw and powerful garage with James' snarling vocals and Joe's meandering guitar on Rock And Roll Heart, to the blue-grassy feel of the traditional number Gypsy Davy, through to the album's more contemplative and Dylan-esque moments like Hard on a Man.
Passengers - In The Garden Of Good And Evil ($22.00 - CD)

X - At Home With You ($30.00 - double CD) * comes in a digipac
The re-release of the classic album At Home With You is a holy grail for lovers of Aussie punk. The album was first released in 1985, and to listen to it today you would think it was recorded in modern times. The second CD is a live set recorded at the Prince Of Wales by the radio station PBS FM. Over the top packaging of course.
X - X-Spurts The 1977 Recordings ($25.00 - CD) * comes in a digipac
This is a 10 track previously unreleased album from the original 4-piece line-up that was recorded on a four track tape recorder in someone's lounge room. "X was wild and unfettered and though this recording is surely low-fi by today's standards, it captures the reality of X as it was. To me they are priceless reminders of days long gone and a subculture that we will never know the likes of again." Steve Lucas - 2011.
Young Modern - Play Faster ($25.00 - CD) * comes in a digipac
Seminal Australian Power pop band from the late seventies and often cited by the likes of Sunnyboys and the Hoodoo Gurus as being an early influence. Housed in a 6-panel digipak, with liner notes, a 16 page booklet and many rare photos.
Young Modern - Live At The Grace Emily ($20.00 - CD)
This stunning 18 song live album finds the band sounding EXACTLY like it's 1978 again. With definitive versions of all their classic tunes, this is masterful power pop that will appeal to fans of Big Star, the Flamin' Groovies, Badfinger and the Nerves.
