Yet another fairly arcane used bin find. White Cross were an acoustic Australian trio (hailing from Melbourne I believe) fronted by twelve-stringer Peter Mather. They recored a full length in 1987, The Bride, a single a year later, and apparently folded shortly thereafter. This rather crackly ep definitely has my recommendations, though I can't say that White Cross bear any outright influences, though they're in a faintly similar vein to the Verlaines. I'm guessing that bassist Nigel Harford was the fellow of the same name that performed in the Stray Tapes during the early '80s.

GLO - Ljusåret Kommer 1980 - The Swedish Punk scene is simply fuckin' great and I'm glad to post another album that proves it colossally again because it has it all. Most of you might...
