Leftovers - Exchange Hotel, Brisbane 1978

 Leftovers were from Brisbane Australia. They formed in 1976 and finished in 1979 leaving the world with only one classic KBD 7" ep in 1978. In 2003 a CD was compiled of their studio tracks and live tracks. All the live tracks are taken from these two show. The quality is lo-fi but still nice to listen to.

Eastern Dark - The Venetian Room, Melbourne 8-17-85

The Eastern Dark were from Australia and existed for about two years between 1984 and 1986. In that time they released one 7". The band ended when one member was killed in a car crash on the way to a gig. Weeks before the crash they recorded a 12" ep which was released a few months later. In 1990 a double LP was released that contained demos and live recordings titled Girls On The Beach (With Cars). A few songs from this live recording are on that album. It is an audience recording and the quality is pretty good. From cassette tape.
