38 years after their formation Australian Crawl are proud to announce the release of their recorded works on vinyl!
Boasting 7 top 40 singles and 6 Top 10 albums across their career - all four studio albums, two live albums and the Semantics LP are now available on the 180gm black stuff. 'Semantics' marks the first time the album has been officially released in Australia.
Fans will be familiar with the 'Semantics EP' released in 1983. The single from it, "Reckless (Don't Be So)" topped the Australian chart in November 1983. Other tracks from the EP were "The Night," "White Limbo" and "Looking For Cool." Not long after the release of the EP, Australian Crawl were signed to Geffen Records for the United States.
The 'Semantics' release was repackaged for the US market, with the original four tracks from the EP, but augmented with six newly recorded versions of the songs from the band's earlier albums. "The Boys Light Up" and "Indisposed" are re-recorded versions of tracks from their debut album 'The Boys Light Up' (1980), while "Errol," "Lakeside," "Things Don't Seem" and "Unpublished Critics" are re-recorded versions of tracks from their second album Sirocco (1981).
'Between A Rock & A Hard Place:' The final Australian Crawl studio album, issued in 1985 – the album debuted at #11, featuring the singles Trouble Spot Rock and Two Can Play.
Each album preserves the original packaging format of their original issue and is pressed on 180gm vinyl, mastered for the format by Don Bartley for Benchmark Mastering.
