The final recordings from one of Melbourne's greatest. Includes three of their last songs that were never properly recorded or released in the day.

Somewhat fittingly, these live versions were recorded at Sean Greenway's wake at The Tote.

These were slated for release as an EP which Tim had titled "Dirty Hits & Backyard Fits".

In the light of subsequent events the title was changed to something a little less gauche, with several extraneous covers from the JJJ sessions included to expand this release to a decent swan song.

* SALES & MARKETING POINTS - Posthumous 7-song EP from legendary 90's Melbourne rock'n'roll group who have taken on truly iconic status since the death of main guy Tim Hemensley a couple of years ago.

- CD consists of 7 unreleased tracks - 3 then-new originals recorded live, plus versions of Little Richard's ucille', Iggy & The Stooges Cock In My Pocket', The Dogs' Black Tea' and The Sick Things Like Pills'.

- Powder Monkeys shared stages with Radio Birdman, Hellacoptors, X, Cosmic Psychos, were formed by ex-members of Bored & God, and were hugely influential on any Australian hard rock'n'roll band of the past decade.

Fans of all these bands will lap this up.
