You gotta hear THE BABY! Comparisons to Urinals and early releases by The Fall don't really capture their wonky approach to post-punk, but this live tape might. Members of BB & the Blips, Bed Wettin' Bad Boys, V.I.P.P. and Photogenic pick up instruments they're unfamiliar with to record straight to a microphone or telephone. Featuring Lucy, Sabina, Max, Ben and fronted by everyone's friend Ravi, the live tape captures the Sydney band's strange early stages.
The 'First Steps' cassette features six songs per side from two recordings, with five variant covers hand drawn and coloured by members of the band. Out January 24th on Meatspin.
released January 9, 2019
