Kiss My Wami

This is possibly the largest post this site will ever see and has taken years of work to compile.

Passionately committed to championing Western Australian music since 1987, WAM is the peak industry body responsible for supporting, nurturing and growing all forms, genres and levels of original contemporary music in WA.

WAM was originally formed as the Western Australian Rock Music Industry Association Inc. (WARMIA) in 1985, with its main aim to develop and run annual awards recognising achievements within the music industry in Western Australia. WAM first received project funding from the state government in 1989, and in the early 1990s the word “rock” was dropped from the title to give the organisation scope to take on a broader constituency.

And what a job they do! I’ve always been a fan of WAM and the great work they do for W.A music. Hats off to all involved throughout the years. From their annual awards shows, enormous amount of gigs they put on or help with, to sponsorship, to their work helping remote outback artists get recorded and heard, WAM and the people behind it has been a fairly integral part of the WA music scene for a very long time.

Since 1997 they have released a compilation CD that showcases a great cross section of music from all parts of the state.

I’ve managed to collect most of them over time and felt it would be great if they could be shared online. I will update this post with artwork as I scan covers of each year. I have some of them done already. Some years had up to 3 audio CD’s and a DVD. I have not included the DVD’s due to their sheer size, just the music. Click the year or the artwork to download a zip file of the music. You will more than likely need to do this from a computer due to their size. Enjoy!

I Betcha Get Goosebumps

Coming right out of left field with this one.

This appears to be a kids CD, released in 1998. It features 5 super random hiphop/urban tunes and 2 of them have Perth Wildcats superstar RICKY GRACE rapping on them about ghosts and ghouls and shit like that. Why!? I do not know!

REALLY weird stuff. Thank you Cash Converters Mandurah for this, it was absolutely worth $1.

Channel 31 – Filter

A fantatic VHS conversion thanks to Figg featuring a pretty healthy cross section of the Perth scene in the year 2000.

It features interviews and footage of No Wonder, Capital City, The Rats,  Turnstyle, Brett Rowe (that hair!!),  DJ’s

Echoic, BJam, Krank, Dan Stinton and some of Perths record store staff at the time.

I don’t even know what the hell this is. Thanks to Chris Righteous @ Dadas for the donation.

It’s actually so fucking weird and bad that I didn’t bother to rip it all to mp3. The disc art is enough. 29 tracks of home recorded noise that seems to concentrate lyrically on such subjects as :

– fuck cops

– fuck bouncers

– i drive better with a few in me

– chopper reid

– fuck cops/bouncers

I dunno why the disc art has details of how to buy it, one would assume if they had the disc in their hand then they already owned it.

 

Curiosity got the better of me so I looked up the address on the disc and it appears to be here, where the letter ‘A’ is, in the middle of …well, nowhere.

 

 

Specifically, this shed.

 

Amazing.

Heres the second track from it.

Wayne Simmons – Follow Your Dreams

If you don’t know who Wayne Simmons is, please watch this.

Now if you haven’t killed yourself after watching that its time for Waynes 1996 masterpiece ‘Follow Your Dreams’

Then you can join his fan club.

I don’t have ‘Solo Groovin’ but one day it will be mine.

Atmosfear

Atomsfear were quite competent musicans and obviously played live quite a lot. I seem to recall the singer being responsible for the SLAM gigs often held at the Newport and other venues and those gigs did a lot of good for up and coming bands so hats off to him.

Atomsfear – Sharon Stone. (1998). Click the artwork to download..

Next is the 1996 LP ‘Pop Sick Kill‘.

ATMOSFEAR_LGP

 

And also from 1996 another LP called ‘Stash‘.

Left Nut – Pigs Arse

Right. Straight off the bat I am going to say I did not pay money for this. I’m ripping it as its so absolutely fucking bad it needs to be archived as one of those ‘wtf’ moments

of Perth music history. I saw this bands name around all the time in the mid to late 90’s. Almost unavoidable. I couldn’t work out if it was a serious band or not and never saw them live.

This recording sounds like it was performed by a year 9 school band, complete with awesome meandering pointless solos and some amazing 1 finger casio keyboard melodies throughout the songs.

Generally I can’t be arsed to photograph or scan cover art if I can’t find it online but in this case, I have.

Apparently they also won a WAMI because they drove around collection a large amount of copies of X Press and mailed in a stack of nominations, voting for for themselves. Genius.

 

Download this pile of crap here. It’s absolutely worth the 31 megs.
