PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING: PERFECT CONDITION BOOKS ARE NOW "SOLD OUT" BUT I HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF 'SECONDS' AVAILABLE at a REDUCED PRICE (Normal RRP was $34.95)

These 'Seconds' have minor scuffs and dings on the covers (the inside page are perfect) - these still come with the CD.

For the past 10 years or so I have gathered information about all the Western Australian Alternative bands through the years 1976~1989 and recorded them in this A to Z book.

Along the way, I was allowed to go through boxes of archives, tapes, posters, flyers and much much more from many musicians of the day. It covers all the ORIGINAL name bands that made it and all the bands that didn't. They are all in here (as close as possible and every effort made) listing band members and who played what with who etc..

The idea of putting it all into a book for all of us to share came after I realised that all these great archives need to be in one place. Yes, there is the internet but its not the same as holding a nice physical book while lounging back and listening to some music of the period.

Perth in the late 70s until 1989 was a hotbed of fantastic original groups with many going under the radar. So my job was to bring all the bands info and great memories back to you so you can reminisce with your family and friends.

Included is an MP3 Archival CD with 92 tracks. Many previously released and many more unreleased demos and live tracks as well. CD only available here ~ Bookstores will not have it.
