The Bones Of Barry Harrison

An excellent live LP from Canberra's Tactics released in 1982.
(it was bagged out for it's LO-FI quality but there are a few gems on this, I thought this was a great album back in the day)

Notes from the insert: 
"The songs of this album were recorded live across Australia in venues ranging from Mt. Druitt to Mt. Gambier, Canberra to Portland, Brisbane to Newcastle, Melbourne to God knows where! Some are studio quality and some are not... The music is real.
They were recorded onto C60 cassettes between 1978 and 1981.
Thanks to Graham for donating hand recorded tapes and big thanks to Al for duty beyond the call of nature."

Atomic Beat Squad - Hurt b/w Hands Of Love 7"

Dennis, who is putting together a Brisbane electronic music
project at the moment has sent us this rare gem.
A 7" single from the Atomic Beat Squad released back in
1990 on Sundown records

Let me hand over to Dennis

And thank you Dennis for this fine post!

This is the Hurt 7" released by Atomic Beat Squad (ABS - formerly 
Tainted Violets) in 1990 on the Sundown label.
The blurb from the Time Off band guide of 1988 for Tainted Violets reads:
"Synth band with Bauhaus and Ultravox influences. Finalists in this 
year's Rock Awards. Come with big wraps."
I seem to remember ABS vying to be signed to a major label at the time.
