4 out of 6 - Incredibly rare!


What a great surprise !!! This Aussie band released just sole record back in 1978 on EMI Customs Records and faded into obscurity. Two songs on this 12". As you might have noticed, "I Am The Walrus" is Beatles cover and inspiration on bands name. But this cover song is made in pure Hard Rock tradition and overall sound reminds me of BUDGIE. Nothing super fancy. But real diamond-song "Wild Time Tonight" can be found on flip side. It's quite fast for a year 1978 and very NWOBHM sounding. It reminds me JAGUAR - "Back Street Woman" a lot, just released three years earlier!!! No kidding here. Great record and worth searching if you're into decent Hard Rock. Comes with nice looking B/W cover.

A) I Am The Walrus
B) Wild Time Tonight
