5MMM's Compilation Album Of Adelaide Bands 1980

A great compilation released by Adelaide communty radio station 5MMM (now known as Three D Radio - 5DDD)
Includes tracks from 6 Rock-Off finalists and 7 other bands that emerged during 1980.

The ones that stand out most for me would have to be The Dagoes, The Jumpers (maybe Australia's first ska band) and The Brats classic Life On The Dole.

Track List:

The Dagoes - Kid's Got Style
Systems Go - Red Light On
The Jumpers - 1966
The Lounge - Raco Bissell
The Manics - Lipstick And Foundation
The Bad Poets - Crash Sweet Crash
Street Corner Jack - Every Home
Desperate Measures - Man In A grey Hat
The Hares - Rats
The Brats - Life On The Dole
The Ungrateful Children - Good Mates
Natasha Koodrasev - Women Break Out
Nuvo Bloc - Never Mind

Hi, I lost my copy of Karma County's Last Stop Heavenly Heights (along with a couple of 1000 other discs)in a house fire. Noticed that you upped it in 2008 but the links are long dead. Any chance you could re-up it please? The album is no longer in print and I've looked everywhere.

What a compilation! Life on the Dole rocks, as do all the other tracks. I'm from Adelaide so finding this was a bit special. Your whole blog rules mate, keep up the good work. Long live Aussie rock.

Big thanks! "Red Light On" by Systems Go is astonishing as well as The Manics' and The Bad Poets' pieces. So glad I've found this
