MAESTROS AND DIPSOS-UNRELEASED RECORDINGS, 198(?), AUSTRALIA




More unreleased archival post punk goodness from the deep recesses of the Aussie early 80's scene (courtesy, long ago, of Phil Turnbull of the superb No Night Sweats site on Aussie underground music), and it's some pretty prescient goodness at that, with Maestros And Dipsos seeming to have both absorbed some of the least wayward lessons from The Raincoats and used that logic to create tunes that seem to anticipate the sound of (early) Throwing Muses in the process. I feel well assured that this traces forward to other less savory dimensions of femme-y indie-land jangle with its relatively unfettered musical stance (I wouldn't care to plumb those depths to make sure I'm right), but at this stage of the game, it's still a pretty damn agreeable set of sounds and associations and one that'll undoubtedly grip lots of you.
