First part of a three-part follow-up to the acclaimed 2002 compilation ‘do the pop! The Australian garage rock sound 1976-1987’, which surprised everybody by selling over 10,000 copies, and which received substantial acclaim internationally (including a full page in mojo and a David Fricke review in rolling stone in the states). ‘do the pop! Redux part one’ covers the early years of this scene from birdman and the saints and all their punk- era contemporaries, to their successors like the Sunnyboys and the flaming hands. As a bonus it also includes a track from Deniz tek’s pre-birdman group TV Jones, and a prototype version of ‘(I’m) stranded’ from 1974, recorded when the saints still went by their original name Kid Galahad & the eternals. Does not duplicate any recordings from the original collection. 52 new tracks! Does include previously unreleased material from the hit men, the lipstick killers, the survivors, the 31st (featuring Ron Peno, Mick Medew and Tony Robertson), Shy Imposters, the end (Brett Myers) and rarely heard early ’80s Sydney legends Me262 and Slaugterhouse 5 (featuring James Darroch). Also a rare and absolutely powerhouse live radio birdman track that only recently appeared on an expensive punk box set in the UK!
