Double CD in 6 panel wallet. Citadel Records is proud to announce a five part reissue series The Hard-Ons - A Decade Of Rock. This definitive body of work will present the entire official recorded output of The Hard-Ons first ten years of existence with a new reissue every three to four months.
Smell My Finger debuts the series. Spanning the years 1984 - 1987, it contains all of the bands early 7 inch releases and the two 12 inch album releases Smell My Finger and Hot For Your Love, Baby. Every officially released Hard-Ons tune from the period, down to the most obscure compilation track, has been included. Adding interest to the mix is some bizarre and fascinating live documentation from salvaged party tapes and desk recordings. These highlight a head-turning mixture of punk, metal, glam, hard-rock, 60s garage, psychedelia, girl-group sounds, power-pop, bubblegum and thrash influences.
The Hard-Ons were an unexpected breath of fresh air when compared to the paisley, winkle-picker wearing garage and the leather-and-studs punk scenes that flourished in Sydney during the mid Eighties. Furious and unpredictable live shows, coupled with brilliantly vibrant recorded output, made for an irresistible knockout punch. The timeless tracks found on Smell My Finger are clear evidence of how a fearless band of teenagers left a lasting and indelible mark as they triumphed over Sydneys indie music scenes before moving out into and ultimately conquering a bigger world. Smell My Finger is simply a MUST for fans and curious onlookers alike! Housed in a six panel gatefold deluxe sleeve, this two disc compilation encompasses 150 minutes of music delivered via exactly 60 songs. Included is a 32 page booklet featuring restored artwork, liner-notes from all three original members and original manager Tim Pittman, unpublished personal photographs and the like. Very tasty!
