Rawk-A-Saurus: the imaginary compilation album (part 1)

So this is what happens when they leave me home alone.  Rawk-a-saurus is the best compilation album that you never heard, because it’s totally imaginary.

Over the last year or so I’ve had the opportunity to watch and photograph a heap of great bands and I thought it might be time to bring some of those images together with the rad music they make.  Just to be really clear; I don’t own the rights to any of this music and this compilation album doesn’t really exist, but wouldn’t it be rad if it did!

If you enjoy the music make sure you support the bands by purchasing the track or making a donation to the band.

fckupsTrack 1: The FckUps – Club Lock Solution

If you ever wondered about the possibility of a GG Allin lovechild in the burbs of Melbourne, wonder no more.  The FckUps offer up ball tearing 80’s influenced hardcore with a touch of the WTF!!!

Coffin WolfTrack 2: Coffin Wolf – Self Destruct

Fine young men shredding guitars, busting drums and hurting lungs, these hard working Melbourne punks put on a show of screaming lyrics combined with hard rocking melodies.

PluralTrack 3: Plural – Crackin’ Knuckles

It’s true, I once described this band’s sound as dolphin sex, but I meant it as a term of endearment.  This garage/surf punk band combine melodic high note backing vocals with fast tempo noise perfect for a day on the beach.

Little Lamb and the RosemarysTrack 4: Little Lamb and The Rosemarys – Building Blocks

I’ll let their bio on their Soundcloud page explain this band as it does a much better job than I could:

“If Courtney Love and Kathleen Hannah had a child and that child decided to have a baby with Marilyn Manson you would find Little Lamb & the Rosemary’s somewhere in the middle.”

Okay that’s it for part 1! Stay tuned and I’ll publish part 2 of the best imaginary compilation album ever, very soon.
