jakethepope Armed with a Moserite Guitar, Wasp & Roland SH2 synthesizers and a Roland CR-78 drum machine, PC's atonal and (still) futuristic, squawking one-note guitar riffs battle with the beeping and whirring din of dissonant keyboards and hyper-fast android thud.
If ya dig synth-punk pioneers like the Screamers or Suicide, this'll definitely be up yer analog electro-skronk alley

about

After reissuing the landmark 1979 live album by Melbourne’s ferocious synth-punk snarlers Primitive Calculators in late 2004, Chapter Music follows up with a crucial compilation of tracks by Primitive Calculators and their friends from the legendary Melbourne Little Band scene.
Including the Calculators’ only studio recording, the single I Can’t Stop It b/w Do That Dance, plus the Little Bands compi- lation EP (both originally released in 1979 and now highly prized collectors items), plus numerous live and rehearsal recordings, the CD examines a particularly fertile and distinctive time in Melbourne music history, which has been discussed in hushed tones ever since. It takes in bands with names like Thrush & the Cunts and Too Fat To Fit Through The Door, and ranges from disaffected Fitzroy art-punk to Sudanese tribal chanting recorded in London.
With liner notes culled from a revealing interview with Prim Calcs members Dave Light, Denise Hilton and Frank Lovece, plus rare photos and song lyrics, Primitive Calculators And Friends is a revelatory companion piece to their live album, which received a rave review from Maximum Rock’n’Roll and a 10 out of 10 Album of the Month feature in Australian Vice Magazine, amongst other stellar reviews.
