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.
