The Day After The Sabbath 21: Uluru Rock (Australia)

[Also see Vol80 for a new Aussie comp] TDATS number 21 "Uluru Rock" features Australian bands, and one from New Zealand slipped in too. Due to the size and remoteness of the Austalasian scene, and the remoteness between the cities of Australia themselves, It was hard for bands to network and find support to progress. Many of these tracks are from singles. Lots of the bands, like Chook, never had the opportunities to produce a full album. I have used their track in a previous comp, but thought it should be put in here as it's a perfect candidate for the theme and also I have managed to find a far better quality version. Fanny Adams appears again with a new track, showing their appealing take on driving simple hard blues riffs that hook into you like Free do.

Rabbit feature none other than the original singer of AC/DC; Dave Evans, and another band that only produced a single, 'The Ash', have two songs joined here as I think they are equally great, being some of the heaviest sabbath-styled stuff I have found from Oz at the time. NZ's Ticket offer an uplifting psych anthem to individuality and Coloured Balls (a name that surely shows the Aussies' bawdy humour) start with a meaty riff and ends the comp on a contemplative note, as does the moody final track from Master's Apprentices.

The 11th in the TDATS series. Featuring Mama Lion's powerful female vox, Tractor's progressive doom excellence, Chook and Fanny Adams' catchy Aussie grooves and a super group featuring Mountain's Leslie West & Corky Laing, and Cream's Jack Bruce no less. We also have the wonderfully obscure B.F. Trike, and The Ghost's awesome heavy folk. The cover of the week is Trouble's version of the classic Lucifer's Friend song Ride The Sky. Another great one I think! Here's a taster of Chook:
