The last of the Primitive Calculators' stuff to be re-released and, in many, many ways, it's more substantial than the expanded live album that came out a couple of years ago. It compiles their excoriating lo-fi electro single (+ some practise session and live material) and all of the "Little Bands" EPs and singles. I've always been ambivalent to these brash, noisy experiments but there's no doubting their intensity and elementalism nor their importance in the stream of Australian underground music, both at the time and now: you can hear elements of their sound in hundreds of bands today (check out the 20 Jazz Funk Greats blog for a great coverage of this stuff). Once again, thanks to Guy Blackman for his continuing fondness for the period .
