The Stems came roaring out of Perth in the mid Eighties with a sound and style that definitively captured the spirit and enthusiasm of sixties garage music - lurching fuzz-tone guitars, brooding organ and solid gold garage-trash! At the core of it all though The Stems wrote some awesome songs, made great records and put on exciting live shows. Tracks like Make You Mine, Love Will Grow and Tears Me In Two mark them out as one of the truly great Australian acts of the Eighties.
Black Angel's Death Song - Nothing Equals Nothing/What Do You Mean (Dionysus ID074522) Black Angel's Death Song were form Los Angeles, formed by J Francis Connors (Pirate Radio, Trash Can School), and Jack Gould (Flower Quartet, Trash Can School). They managed to release 3 CDs, and 5 7"s. Their sound in this single is raw 60s garagepunk, with loud guitars and primitive drums, although in later releases you can hear some VU influences.
