Various Artists - Survival Of The Fittest (1981-89 Aussie garage surf rock, Ryko disc issue)



Another fine example of Australian's underground scene. The secod half (mostly) of the '80's covered here with some very known and other lesser known bands and artists, such as The Hitmen, The Sreaming Triebsmen, Damien Lovelock (from Celibate Rifles), Klondike (aka Chris Masuak -former member of Radio Bridman-). A musical puzzle with rough and jagged garage surf beat sounds, through neo psychedelia and funky vibes. The compilation was released by Ryko disc in 1990.
