JIM DICKSON - COELUM VERSUS - CITCD591
"Coelum Versus is basically a story, conceptual in its making, based on meditations on tragedy, suffering, redemption, revelation and rebirth... aspects of life brought very near to me by the passage of the lives of friends whose lives I hold very dear." says Jim.

THE VOLCANICS - TRANSMISSION - CITCD588
The Volcanics formed in Perth's back blocks with a purpose of playing stripped down rock 'n' roll with no hype attached. Inspired by great local bands who came before them like The Victims and The Scientists as well as the classic rock sounds of The Stooges, MC5 and AC/DC, the band have concocted their own brand of white hot, fuel injected rock 'n' roll.

THE ON AND ONS - IT'S THE ON AND ONS CALLING - CITCD587
Produced and engineered by legendary Australian guitarist Dennis Wilson of Khavas Jute fame, It's The On And Ons Calling consists of 11 songs that are pure rock/power pop in essence. Just what you might hope for; great tunes based on exceptional harmonies and classic instrumentation.

HARD-ONS - TOO FAR GONE - CITCD586
The Hard-Ons' recorded output had always been wildly eclectic and adventurous. They go over the edge with Too Far Gone. Too far gone indeed. Essential and timeless listening for all fans of underground Australian music ... punk, pop, or otherwise.

THE ORANGE HUMBLE BAND - DEPRESSING BEAUTY - CITCD585
It's been quite a while since Darryl Mather's Orange Humble Band has had a release. It's been worth the wait. With a core of luminaries like Ken Stringfellow (Posies), Mitch Easter (Let'sActive) and Jody Stephens (Big Star) this is going to make a lot of fan's of the previous two album very happy.

RADIO BIRDMAN - CD BOX SET
"Indeed, Radio Birdman was, for a moment, the greatest Rock & Roll band in the world. In the pressure cooker of the Oxford Tavern, Birdman cranked the sound harder and faster and pushed every moment to its limit. Birdman never played at anything less than full intensity. When was the last time that you danced non-stop for an hour and a half? When was the last time that you actually saw a band so overload the sound system that it fell apart on stage? When did you see a band that really didn't give a fuck what you or anybody else thought of them? They never played the same set twice. It was inspiring. It was, in fact, exactly what they tell you Rock & Roll is about but almost never is." (citcd574 - Oct 10th 2014 release)

PETER BLACK - THE PAINTINGS ON THE WALL SAY GAMBLER! GAMBLER!
"The Paintings On The Wall Say Gambler! Gambler! is a flaming solid ball of creative explosion, whereby storm-trooping guitars and rhythm of Peter Black's side-projects The Hard-Ons and Nunchukka Superfly are overall forsaken in favour of various water colours, pastels and oil paintings of beautiful, introspective and may I say, whimsical melodies, that showcase a great understanding of what it means to be an ambitious yet utterly self-aware and self-assured song-writer and performer."

NUNCHUKKA SUPERFLY - OPEN YOUR EYES TO SMOKE - CITCD578 & CITLP578
To say that the Hard-Ons are an Australian underground rock institution would be an understatement. But did you know that Ray and Blackie, the two mainstays of that said band, have an equally compelling musical troupe in their repertoire?

MICK MEDEW - THE MESMERISERS - CITCD577
The latest album from the ex Screaming Tribemen frontman is a bit of a step away from the expected but it still bears all the distinctive Medew hallmarks. The thick and layered production from band member Brian Mann really make this a special release for Medew.

THE VOLCANICS - GET A MOVE ON - CITCD575
One of Perth undiscovered wonders, The Volcanics have been producing their own brand of high quality dirty rock'n'roll for years. Produced by Australian rock icon Rob Younger (Radio Birdman / New Christs) and mixed by legendary producer Wayne Connolly, Get A Move On is big, brassy and bold...

DM3 - THE BEST OF - CITLP572 (vinyl only release)
This was specifically manufactured for sales during the band's 2013 European dates but of course fills a wider function. A wonderful album and jammed packed with the band's best know and most loved tracks. Vinyl only - no CD version currently available.

HARD-ONS - LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD OF WOUNDED HEARTS - CITCD571
