Welcome to my blog!

UPDATE: Mediafire have suspended my account and locked my downloads. Having endured the tedium of re-uploading everything I had previously hosted on Mega Upload onto Mediafire earlier this year, I can't be arsed re-uploading everything again.

So please don't ask for things to be reuploaded!

I undertake this venture knowing that I don't have the spare time to do it, but feel that these artists NEED TO BE HEARD (please excuse my shouting!). Or is that I think I need to be heard? Or that there are (or have been) some great music blogs that have inspired me to wanna jump on the bandwagon? Probably all of the above??I hope you enjoy the blog. If I turn one person onto these bands that turned me on then it will all have been worth it!

Flying Nun EP megapost

A few weeks back I posted some JPS Experience EPs. I knew I had another EP hiding away somewhere.....and here it is: Breathe, featuring two tracks (Breathe, Block) from Bleeding Star, and 2 non-album tracks which are every bit as good.

JPS Experience - 1993 - Breathe EP
1. Breathe
2. Up In the Sky
3. Kickback
4. Block


And here are the three Straitjacket Fits CD singles released from the excellent Blow album. First we have Done, featuring two non-album tracks, including the malevolent Whiteout, the highlight of their 1993 Big Day Out shows in Australia. The versions of Done and Spacing have different mixes than the album versions. IMHO Done is a bit lackluster compared to the raucous album version - but still worth a listen!

Straitjacket Fits - 1992 - Done
1. Done
2. Spacing
3. Solid
4. Whiteout


Next up is Cat Inna Can, featuring two non-album tracks Sycamore and Satellite, the latter being an excellent cover of the Sex Pistols tune.

Straitjacket Fits - 1993 - Cat Inna Can
1. Cat Inna Can
2. Sycamore
3. Satellite


Last but not least is If I Were You, featuring demos of two of the standout tracks from Blow, Brother's Keeper and Burn It Up. The album versions are pretty faithful to the demos, but the demos are worth a listen for the completist and/or obsessive!

Straitjacket Fits - 1993 - If I Were You
1. If I Were You
2. Brother's Keeper (demo)
3. Burn It Up (demo)



  1. Good stuff Mr D. I'm ashamed to say I know very little about The JPSE or Straitjacket Fits, so this'll be an education.

    ta everso....

  2. Really liked the JPS Experience EP, very good and the Sex Pistol cover was interesting! Thank you for these.


  3. Is there any way you could re upload the SJF EP's? Would love to hear them!
