Spanish label casts a light on Sydney's Voigt/465

It must be the season for re-issues from the Sydney underground. Spanish label Guerssen, which specialises in long buried gems, is issuing an album of the music of Australian punk/post-punk band Voigt/465.

The band existed from 1976-79 and stood apart from much of the guitar-dominated Sydney underground scene. Influenced by the likes of Can, Brian Eno and Perl Ubu, Voigt/465 recorded one album, “Slights Unspoken”, as they were about to break-up. Members went on to Pel Mel and Wild West.

“Slights Still Unspoken” compiles their LP and a posthumous 2001 collection of recordings. It's available on CD here.

The tracklist:

CD Tracklist: 01. State* – 02. A Secret West* – 03. Voices A Drama – 04. A Welcome Mystery – 05. Red Lock On See Steal – 06. Imprint – 07. Many Risk – 08. Is New Is – 09. 4 Hours – 10. P – 11.
