        4.      Uptight, Out Of Sight

Superb garage, surf and (freak-)beat sounds from Australia, 1967! This LP compiles
songs from the soundtrack for the surf movie 'The Hot Generation', plus single versions
and previously unissued recordings. Among the highlights is the 8-minute 'Uptight, Out
Of Sight' that's a genre in itself: genuine progressive garage punk! You can see where
the seeds were formed for THE SUNSETS' transition into TAMAM SHUD. Including liner
notes from film maker Paul Witzig and lots of eye candy from the movie, this release is
totally mindblowing!

Redd Kross began life as part of the 70’s Los Angeles South Bay punk scene by brothers
Steven and Jeff McDonald who were intermittently joined by a revolving cast of members
including Greg Hetson (Circle Jerks) and Ron Reyes (Black Flag). Full of catchy,
melodic, thrash punk/power pop gems, their major label debut ‘Third Eye’ has been
increasingly hard to come by on vinyl until now.

BRC     13      JOHN SANGSTER           THE TRIP                        LP      10.2015

A great vinyl reissue of a wonderful 1967 exotica/lounge/jazz LP by Australian cult
musician, composer and arranger JOHN SANGSTER. 'The Trip' is an all cover affair.
A mixed bag of pop hits of the day, from the likes of Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The
Rolling Stones, with Brazilian bossa nova, jazz and takes on soundtrack themes. All
these are done with a remarkable, extremely enjoyable twist.

BRC     14      JOHN SANGSTER           THE JOKER IS WILD               LP      10.2015

A great vinyl reissue of a wonderful 1968 exotica/lounge/jazz LP by Australian cult
musician, composer and arranger JOHN SANGSTER. On his second album you'll find cover
versions of classic songs s.a. 'Love Is Blue', 'What Now, My Love?' and 'A Day In The
Life', combined with tunes from a.o. Cuba, France and even Rhodesia, plus two original
compositions. All tracks were performed in an amazing and extremely enjoyable fashion.

BRC     16      RAY BROWN/MOONSTONE     MAD HOUSE                       LP      02.2016

RAY BROWN/MOONSTONE'S sole album, 1970's 'Mad House', is an Australian anomaly of the
time. The music comes across as a potpourri of late '60s US West-Coast sounds, feat.
sitar, tampoura, dholak, tabla, banjo, violin, pedal steel guitar, flute, cello, piano
and more! In the mid-'60s Ray Brown fronted the highly rated group The Whispers,
sharing bills with a.o. Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs, Tony Worsley & The Blue Jays, The
Easybeats, Normie Rowe & The Playboys and Max

BRC     20      BABES IN TOYLAND        HANDSOME AND GRETEL             7"      06.2016

        A       Handsome And Gretel
        AA      Pearl

Originally released in June 1991 as a limited edition release on Insipid Vinyl, this
single sold out pretty much within the month after it was NME's single of the week
and received repeated spins by John Peel on the BBC. (Fun fact: he actually even
reached out to request a copy of the record before it was released!)
