THIS BOOK DOES NOT HAVE THE 80s ROCK, POP & BLUES Scene within.. That book is coming soon. This book is related to the Indie and Punk scene.

Inside the Book:
For the past 10 years or so George Matzkov has gathered information about all the Western Australian Alternative bands through the years 1976~1989 and recorded them in this A to Z book.

Along the way, he was allowed to go through boxes of archives, tapes, posters, flyers and much much more from many musicians of the day. It covers all the ORIGINAL name bands that made it and all the bands that didn't. They are all in here (as close as possible and every effort made) listing band members and who played what with who etc..

The idea of putting it all into a book for all of us to share came after he realised that all these great archives needed to be in one place. Yes, there is the internet but its not the same as holding a nice physical book while lounging back and listening to some music of the period.

Perth in the late 70s until 1989 was a hotbed of fantastic original groups with many going under the radar. So his job was to bring all the bands info and great memories back to you so you can reminisce with your family and friends.

Included is an MP3 Archival CD with 92 tracks. Many previously released and many more unreleased demos and live tracks as well.
