Tamam Shud – Evolution
Anthology Recording’s Surf Archive delivers the first ever reissue of Evolution, the debut album by Australian progressive heavy rock fiends Tamam Shud. Led by Lindsay Bjerre, the quartet of surfers-turned-musicians (or the other way around) were significant purveyors of the underground progressive music movement in Australia circa 1968 – 1972. Hhere, a blazing backdrop of charged-up fuzz and guitar expression exquisitely matching the wild, inspirational, and groundbreaking visuals of Paul Witzig’s incredible 1969 surf film of the same name.
Tully – Sea of Joy
Director Paul Witzig’s 1971 Sea Of Joy inspired Australian hard rockers Tully to trade in their riffs and explore enchanted themes and mellow moods that became the film’s celebrated soundtrack. This newly restored classic caresses shores beyond Australia’s beaches for the first time ever for Anthology’s Surf Archives. Although none of the members of Tully were surfers, they were nonetheless appreciative of the natural beauty and power of the ocean and the largely relaxed disposition associated with surfer lifestyle. It’s perhaps Tully’s acceptance and ease that inspires one of the more unique surf soundtracks of its time.
