Anodyne 500

Stole this from last.fm :

Anodyne 500 were a guitar rock pop band that sounded a little like The Posies and The Pixies. Formed in Perth in the mid-’90s by former Rosemary Beads singer/songwriter/guitarist Chris Fuller, the lineup included Gary Matthews (Drums), Darren Maloney (Bass) and (much later) ex-Wooden Fische guitarist Chris Hann.

Releasing two EPs, “Treasureway” and “Built for Speed, Not Comfort”, Anodyne gigged regularly for about five years from 1995 to 2000, touring Australia once in 1999.

This band was great! ‘TourDe Couch’ is one of my favourite songs of all time. Try finding anything about them online, its as if it never happened. The Perth Syndrome as I call it. Chris Fuller went on to form Ikey Mo who are/were equally as awesome. This was recorded at Jewel Studio by Tim Jewel who was in my year at school. Can anyone remember the name of the band he was in because I have been trying to for ages and can’t.

Anyway..

Anodyne 500 – Treasureway (1998)

And here is their 1999 EP ‘Built For Speed, Not Comfort’. Thanks to Dave Fallon and Mark Stewart for this.

  1. Thanks for the uploads, PMB.

    Unfortunately, I’ve run into a problem with Built For Speed, Not Comfort. When I try to extract the RAR file, I get an error message about track 5 and it won’t extract (the other tracks do). I’ve tried it with both WinRAR and 7-Zip.

    Help!
