PROTON ENERGY PILLS, THE
ROCKET TO TARRAWANNA (BANG!)
Finally, after many years of waiting, The Proton Energy Pills'music is going to be available on digital format.
Their recordings were originally released on vinyl on the Australian label Waterfront, and have never before been released on CD, until now with this "Rocket To Tarrawanna".
This CD also contains outakes and live recordings by this seminal high-energy-grunge Australian Band.
The following spiel is taken from the excellent compilation CD called Tales From the Australian Underground which was released in 2006 on Feel Presents Record Label.
."The Proton Energy Pills were an allegiance of brothers Jay, Lenny and Dave Curley and schoolyard friends Richard (Richie) Lewis and Stewart Cunningham.
At the helm was Stewart, a whiz kid guitarist and gifted songwriter who, along with singer and eldest brother Dave, wrote nearly all the bands material.
They only released two singles and a mini-album before Stewart decided to leave the band.
Jay, Lenny and Richie would then go on to form and garner much success with Tumbleweed, while Stewart did his time with Brother Brick, The Yes Men and Asteroid B-612.
This BANG! Records anthology compiles all the band's official recordings (produced by Dinosaur Jr's J.Mascis and Celibate Rifles'Kent Steedman), plus some unreleased and live matterial, and a big booklet full of info/pics.
