ANTICIPATED RELEASE DATE IS DECEMBER, 2017. LIMITED TO 150 HAND-NUMBERED COPIES ONLY.

Before The Hitmen, the Screaming Tribesmen and Died Pretty were the 31st - one of Brisbane's earliest exponents of high-energy rock 'n' roll who existed between 1979 and 1981. Somewhere in that frame of time, they recorded 4 tracks for a proposed EP with Mark Louttit at the controls. Over the presiding years these tracks have cropped up on various compilation CDs but it wasn't until 2017 that the original master tapes were given a thorough restoration by Don Bartley and finally issued in its complete form as a 4 track EP through Laneway Music as a digital download via iTunes

This vinyl version is mastered by Don Bartley and presented in 12" form at 45rpm for optimal analogue sound quality with handmade monochrome screen printed covers in an edition of 150 with exhaustive liner notes by their sound engineer, Mark Louttit.
