Presented on seven LP's is a comprehensive overview of Australian underground music, originally released on cassettes or vinyl between the late '70s and early-mid '80s. The first two platters contain Andrew Lonsdale's (Browning Mummery) selection of rare and essential tracks representing the vast diversity of sounds found in Australia's underground scene of the era. LP #3 features artists from the Lymph Products catalogue (The Horse He's Sick, Cerebral Haemorrhage, Kurt Volentine and Cut With The Kitchen Knife) and Browning Mummery's Boxmusik Tapes. LP #4, compiled by Garry Bradbury (former member of Severed Heads), focuses on bands, projects and collaborations such as Wet Taxis, Rhino Rhino, and Pissy Relay Switches, that released music on the famous Terse Tapes label. The fifth disc contains the split LP of Hiroshima Chair and a selection of M-Squared label related bands such as Systematics, Scattered Order, Ya Ya Choral, and The Makers Of The Dead Travel Fast. LP's 6 and 7 are fully dedicated to the earliest recordings by Tom Ellard's Severed Heads, containing the highly collectable albums 'Clean', 'Ear Bitten' and the 'Side 2' tape. The set also includes a large and extensive 48-page LP-sized booklet with lots of valuable information, insights and photos/scans compiled and written by David Courtney.
