Lethal Weapons / Various [Import]
(Australia - Import)
Lethal weapons was a tentative major label funded foray into the emergent Australian punk movement. It was short lived and much maligned, (apparently, they didn't "mean it man!") But was an important release in that it contains the earliest recordings of, amongst others: The boys next door (nick cave / birthday party), teenage radio stars (Sean Kelly & James Freud - models), the survivors (the new Christs), jab (models) and the negatives (sacred cowboys). Our deluxe 6 panel digipak, has been re-mastered from the original tapes, has liner notes by ian McFarlane and a revealing essay on the origins (and demise) of the suicide label by Glenn Terry. There are 2 bonus tracks: The teenage radio stars' non-LP b-side 'sweet boredom' and the teenage radio stars' film clip for 'I Wanna Be Your Baby'.
