First pressing on limited edition opaque yellow vinyl
In 1984 TISM compiled a number of recent recordings, and dubbed up a couple of dozen cassettes. The cassette was created predominantly for the band’s own amusement but a handful were sold at a performance at Melbourne University and another half dozen or so were sold to a few Melbourne indie record stores. One copy found its way to booking agent Mark Burchett and indie label owner Gavan Purdy, who immediately signed them up for gigs and a record deal. The rest is history, but those quickly forgotten cassettes, and the recordings which graced them, have become a holy grail for collectors.
Here finally, remastered and sounding better than ever before, are those recordings.
