One of the most bizarre and assaultive records I've heard in a long while. This is particularly impressive because it's not really a noise or punk record, but in fact some insanely twisted hip hop from Australia. The label, 72826, has already compiled a dossier on their new vinyl compilation release of Syringe Stick-Up Mama, which I've enclosed below. 72826 is from down under too, but the record ships from Canada, so you US customers can ORDER in confidence that it won't cost too too much.
At Christmas 2004, although the crew had split, they released the album they had been working on, Dealers to Nodders. This was funded from charity rorts and stripping copper from factories. The album features guest appearances by Midnight Stabber, who Syringe Stick-Up Mama met in Borders where Midnight Stabber was dakking an 'Introduction to Post-Colonialism', and the wholesome Flora, who Bag Snatcha met at a Christmas carols sing-a-long at Northcote Nursing Home in 2003. Long since sold out, that highly sought after CD remains an important artifact of experimental hip hop from Australia and the majority of it along with a select few other songs have been rescued from obscurity and remastered for vinyl. Tastefully packaged in a newly designed sleeve; it also includes an insert with lyrics and liner notes. All copies come shrinkwrapped and affordably priced. Cloaked in mystery, little is known about the Syringe Stick-Up Mamas. Their violent and outrageous on-stage antics are now legendary. They were certainly pretty out-there and insane. And highly original. From Australia, no less. A bit rough around the edges, but severely kooky. First pressing of 300 copies on black vinyl.
