BORED! 500 only pink vinyl.
12 tracks of the “best bits”* by Australian Underground Legends Bored!. Geelong's most raucous guitar led rock action destroyers, whom started a whole scene back in 1987, these tracks are picked by a long term fan of the band as a tribute to Dave Thomas, leader of Bored! who passed away in early 2020. Dave Thomas is widely regarded as a legendary riff master, a "scene" definer; many of the second (third?) wave of garage rock and roll noise from 1996 onwards owe many a debt, and a riff or two.
They were / are one of the greatest of all the great bands from Melbourne / Geelong area. Bored! inspired people to form bands, put on gigs, book tours, put out records and that’s mainly down to the nature of lead singer / guitarist Dave Thomas. Dave was supportive to anyone and everyone who wanted to get involved. Indeed, without Bored!, Agitated Records most likely would not exist.
All monies raised from this release will be passed to his surviving family. Its loud, and it rocks..
*a compiler’s notes / tracklisting:
There’s songs from all of the eras of Bored! From the early albums, when they were originally a four piece, some with the Hemensley / Nolan thunder and shred!!! More are from the three-piece era (Feed The Dog..woof woof!), there's one from the five piece live era after Dave broke both of his wrists.. (a pretty wild live rendition of Mr 10% on here.. hold on to your hairpiece there!), one of many cover versions they did that could easily have made it here.. the Sham cover makes it this time.. (with added extra Geelong gobshites on that one!!) and then some later period stuff, “Shame” the opener is from that time and was a staple form their EU/UK tour of 1994.. also a later 1993 recording of their early classic “Little Suzi” which also features on the Piggyback comp from 2016.. which Dave actually preferred to the original.
