N. Martin – Clean & Jerk

N. Martin has released a solo EP of pop/lo-fi DIY introverted folk music. Recorded in the bathroom at Fay St Lake Munmorah one chilly weekend, this guy is renowned for penning and recording his music/ideas quickly so not to let them grow stale and irrelevant. N. Martin is the Lesstalk staple for great and interesting songwriting and releases (e.g. The (temperamental) Pocket, Crab Smasher, Skippy The Bush Kangaroo, Sweet Teeth) , and this EP is another release he can add to the quiver of radness. Offered only as a free digital release for you to download, then put on your iPod and listen to while catching public transport to work in the morning.

Skippy The Bush Kangaroo – Greatest Hits Vol.1

Lesstalk Records have made the Skippy The Bush Kangaroo EP available for free download. The original CDR is long out of print, so check it out if you missed it first time around. Skippy were a fruity/thrashy/screamy band from the NSW Central Coast, with an aussie sense of humour, some rockin’ tunes, and lots of teenage fans. The band featured the flexible duo of Nathan Martin and Jeff Brown from Anal Discharge, The (Temperamental) Pocket, Crab Smasher etc. on Guitar and Drums.  After a long hiatus, Skippy have now reinvented themselves as New Guava. ooooh.
