Brisbane punkers Blowhard have released a vinyl retrospective of their 32-year career. Titled Blow Fast… The Last Blow, the album is available via well-established local independent label Valve records and contains a hand-picked selection of tracks spanning all eras of Blowhard’s larger-than-life history, starting with songs from the band’s early 7-inch vinyl EPs and moving chronologically through cuts from subsequent releases.
Blowhard released three albums Blowin’ Off (1993), Hornbag (1996) and The Toxic Swing (2009) along with the compilation album Five Minute Ride Through Hell, as well as countless singles and EPs released via Rollo‘s own record label, Splurt Records. Rollo led Blowhard for 30 years, and given his and the band’s collective history in other punk/alternative outfits, is a momentous achievement. Blowhard was also the third ever Brisbane punk band (after The Saints and The Onyas) to tour overseas. Additionally, Rollo’s activities as a concert promoter, Splurt record label champ, 4ZZZ radio personality, and an all-round ceaseless supporter of the local DIY music world, truly cement his legacy across the Brisbane music scene and beyond.
