First time on vinyl for beloved 1995 EP ‘Life Was Better’ from Oz rock icons Magic Dirt!

After the release of ‘Signs Of Satanic Youth’ and a heady succession of touring with the likes of Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Beck and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Geelong rockers Magic Dirt weathered the hysteria of the next big thing tag and a storm of major label interest by breaking up and getting back together four times.

Debuting at #1 on the Australian alternative music chart and staying on that chart for a whopping 75 weeks, ‘Life Was Better’ sold 20,000 copies, received four ARIA nominations in 1995, topped nearly every radio, alternative press and record store chart in the land, garnered the band a national spot on the Big Day Out, supports with Hole, Silverchair and Dinosaur Jr in 1995, and landed them a major record deal with Warner Music U.S.
