Greetings from Hobart, Tasmania. I first found out about JBC when a friend
from Canada sent me a tape that had Water, Big Bad Thing, Party Time, Peter
Lorre and Caroline Wheeler's Birthday Present on it. Scraping and scrounging
in record shops have netted me copies of "Bath Of Bacon", "Distressed
Gentlefolk", "Cult Of The Basement" and "Fishcotheque".
Scrounging is continuing. The only JBC song that I have ever heard on radio
here in Tassie was "She's On Drugs". My personal favourite song is "Nothing
Special", something to do with long hours spent on trains going through
country Victoria several years ago.
No idea about the Australian release of "Shirley Maclaine", I'm afraid I
haven't seen or heard the new album. There is one record shop in Hobart where
you can get "non-US-influenced-mainstream" records; they had a section marked
Jazz Butcher which only contained one second-hand copy of "Distressed
Gentlefolk". The hunt continues shortly in Melbourne and Auckland...
