This is a very interesting sampler produced by ‘Treadmill’, apparently a management and promo company which started in 1993.
The sampler includes music from Perth bands Flanders, Avid Grey and Bucket and it also features music from the Sydney band ‘Knievel’. There is no date on it but if I had to guess I’d say late 95 or 96.
I think what is most interesting about this sampler is the tracks from Bucket. According to the liner notes it says Bucket signed a 4 album deal with American label
‘Radical Records’ and their debut LP was slated for release in 1998 with 3 of the tracks on that LP featuring on this compilation. Well I’ve got the 2 Bucket EP’s in a post here but as far as I am aware the LP this sampler is talking about never actually ended up being released. As such this means we’ve got 3 unreleased tracks here, great!
HERE it is!
I’ve left the Knievel stuff in there because I really REALLY liked their record ‘We Fear Change’ and the tracks on this sampler are quite hard to find. They’re from their 2nd LP ‘Steep Hill Climb’.
