Description

Melbourne’s short-lived Havoc Records label ran from 1971 to 1973 and released landmark releases from some of Australia ’s greatest ever bands. The monster selling Aztecs Live! At Sunbury (AVSCD001), and the all-time Aztecs’ classic ‘Most People I Know Think That I’m Crazy’ were the biggest sellers, but the label also released notable platters from Lobby Loyde (with the Coloured Balls and The Wild Cherries), Carson, Thump’n Pig & Puff’n Billy, Michael Turner In Session, Ash, Chook (best Aussie band name ever?) and Star Spangled Banger.

Aztecs’ drummer Gil Matthews was the house engineer / producer for Havoc and produced all nineteen singles and five albums (including his own release ‘Little Dove’ / ‘Gil’s Thing’). The label was a testament to Havoc boss Frank Smith’s eclectic taste - apart from the “Oz Rock” stable listed above, there were Jasmine’s Dory Previn covers, Robbie Snowden’s ridiculous ‘Hot Pants Sue’ and the ultra-rare soundtrack A City’s Child.

The entire 1971-1973 singles are collected in this 2CD deluxe package with 2 bonus tracks from Carson and David Pickard.
