Stained Sheets 3.2 - Melbourne, Victoria

Stained Sheets releases are few but welcomed like finding that $10 note in your jacket you can't explain. Previous issues have all lead to further probing of contained subjects which include the likes of Venom P. Stinger, The Bitters, Modern Convenience, Kurt Vile, The Flecks etc.

This issue is #4 and extended to 32 pages (still free) featuring interviews with 1950's Melbourne R'n'R party band The Blue Bops by Scott Campbell, NZ-now-Sydney jangle-pop Garbage & The Flowers by Cooper Bowman, Manic New Jersey Brat punk Home Blitz, frantic Tampa Bay noise punk Neon Blud, daydream beached out Sonny & The Sunsets all by Tim Scott as well as 4 or 5 others worth a look-in. Issue 4 also has discussion on vintage Adelaide 77' fanzine, Street Fever and finishes with 2 pages of paragraph-long reviews from favourites of mine including: Rhys Davies, Leon O'Regan and Dan Stewart.
