In 1984 TISM compiled a number of recent recordings, and dubbed up a couple of dozen cassettes. The cassette was created predominantly for the band’s own amusement but a handful were sold at a performance at Melbourne University and another half dozen or so were sold to a few Melbourne indie record stores. One copy found its way to booking agent Mark Burchett and indie label owner Gavan Purdy, who immediately signed them up for gigs and a record deal. The rest is history, but those quickly forgotten cassettes, and the recordings which graced them, have become a holy grail for collectors.
Here finally, remastered and sounding better than ever before, are those recordings.
The Art-Income Dialectic
Eckermann Is Very Silly
The Back Upon Which Jezza Jumped
Defecate On My Face
Lyric For Jack
I Go To Werribee
Crime Against The Spirit Oo Poo Pee Doo
Pus Of The Dead
* The cassette is not an exact copy of the original - we didn't fancy sitting around cutting up lyric sheets and gluing labels onto cassette bodies for 500 cassettes. J-Card is cardboard, not paper. Cassette content is the same as original issue but does NOT contain PBS promo which found it's way onto some dubs.
